FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DataMotion Health™, a provider of secure health information delivery services and solutions, today announced an enhanced version of its SaaS platform that enables easy collaboration across the care continuum and empowers the patient to be an active participant. The interoperable, cloud-based DataMotion Health platform offers a comprehensive set of services for connecting and delivering protected health information (PHI) securely and efficiently. With enhancements in key areas such as patient consent tracking, identity validation and authentication, workflow integration and mobile case management, the system ensures delivery where, when and how care teams want and need it, while ushering in powerful ways that enable greater patient engagement.
"Successfully sharing information is at the heart of all major healthcare initiatives – from patient engagement and population health to increased data security and payment reform – and it requires effective collaboration between all members of the care team and the patient," said CTO and Co-founder of DataMotion Health, Bob Janacek. "To be successful, information – independent of size, structured or unstructured – must be easily exchanged in a manner that's HIPAA-compliant and in the right format. These are practical business demands we've overcome for healthcare organizations, not simply to increase their efficiency and reduce costs, but to improve care and empower patients like never before."
The DataMotion Health platform delivers a wide range of integrated and standalone services and solutions, including:
Customers Harness the Platform & Empower the Patient
New to the platform are major enhancements in patient consent, identity validation and authentication, workflow integration, Direct/fax service integration and mobile case management. Enlisting many of these to deliver a new level of "patient experience" is Hackensack University Medical Center (HackensackUMC). The largest provider of inpatient and outpatient health services in New Jersey, ranked #1 in the State by U.S. News & World Report, HackensackUMC has leveraged the power of the DataMotion Health platform to enhance their mobile app for an industry-first solution – Patient Self-Enrollment with Multi-factor Identity Validation.
Designed for leading mobile operating systems (iOS, with Android coming soon), the HackensackUMC Mobile Access App now allows patients to self-enroll for hospital services remotely from their mobile device using DataMotion Health Identity Validation Services enabled by the platform. It positively identifies registrants by validating a "selfie" photo and data from ID cards, and then automates an EHR registration workflow using the captured data, greatly simplifying and expediting enrollment. Under development for the HackensackUMC App is the inclusion of Direct secure messaging addresses and automated patient consent for sharing specific medical record information with authorized recipients, all powered by the DataMotion Health platform.
Driving these developments is HackensackUMC Vice President and CIO, Shafiq Rab, M.D., who noted: "The push in healthcare is to produce better outcomes and bring costs under control. At the same time, patients are tired of a system that can be so confusing. These complexities can be overcome by giving patients access to their data and the ability to communicate directly with providers. We've been a DataMotion customer and know the power of their platform. Together, we've created an app that empowers the patient and makes our workflows more efficient. It leverages the platform to automate enrollment, track consent and connect the patient to their care team. This is the future of healthcare – and it's very bright."
The DataMotion Health platform has also been leveraged by mHealth vendor docsnap. An easy-to-use and convenient mobile app offered through primary care providers, docsnap empowers patients to keep track of and manage their families' health records, communicate with providers, get reminders about health-related events and more. Using the Direct messaging and integration services of the platform, the docsnap app gives patients a centralized copy of their clinical and lab records from across the care continuum, along with the ability to share that information with care team members. The platform offers scalability to onboard millions of patients and provides each with a unique Direct secure messaging address. An in-depth set of DataMotion APIs were leveraged for identity validation (RA), certificate generation (CA) and Direct messaging (HISP), along with service provisioning and administration.
"Integrating our app with the platform was easy, fast, and immediately delivered greater efficiencies and reduced costs for providers," said Founder and CEO of docsnap, Dr. Anthony Mari. "Most importantly, patients can control their care, and with an 'informed consumer,' outcomes are always much better. Healthcare has started a new chapter and the pivotal role is being played by patients, who are no longer passive but taking an active role in their treatment."
