Improve Patient Outcomes

Population health and advanced analytics is now possible to improve patient outcomes

Interoperability

Interoperability between your device and your clinics health information systems is likely one of the top requests from your customers.  The ability to connect can solve the following problems:

  1. Increase efficiency by reducing the manual data entry from and to the device and allow your customer to focus on improving patient outcomes rather than performing tedious and repetitive tasks
  2. Reduce transcription errors and the inherent liability and patient safety issues
  3. Reduce privacy breaches by securing the transfer of Protected Health Information (PHI) between the device and the customer’s health information systems.
  4. Help customers to comply with the requirements of HHS to provide patient’s with timely and electronic access to their health records
  5. Make your device competitive with the new wave of “Smart Devices” and “IoT devices” by providing a simple and user-friendly integration suite with no change to your existing device.
Challenge

Despite the many benefits, interoperability can be challenging as it requires a large investment in a product development team capable of supporting the various environments in healthcare facilities, an understand of the ever evolving interoperability standards (HL7, DICOM, FHIR, etc.), the ability to implement privacy and security into the design and to leverage the best and unique workflows of each healthcare provider’s health information system. 

For this reason, interoperability has either required a large team to implement a custom product or costly customization and licensing of generic health integration engines (such as Orion, Cloverleaf). 

Finally Integration solutions do not allow for clinicians to add custom and useful observations to reports and require highly complex and costly customization to the EHR/EMR in addition to the integration connectivity.

Simplified. Optimized.

The Flow Technology solution simplifies this by providing a solution that is optimized for medical device connectivity and health information systems. The system is designed to quickly integrate with diagnostic devices and Health Information Systems, EMRs and EHRs in both directions with minimal setup and customization. 

The system can either be directly installed by the health care organization and configured centrally to interconnect all compatible devices or can be managed by our professional service group to quickly enable the appropriate connections. 

Flow is the only solution that also provides workflows and forms to allow clinicians to add observations either prior to the upload to the EHR/EMR or within the EHR/EMR.

Server-Based Solution

Unlike most outdated and expensive OEM products, the Flow Technology solution is a server-based solution which can integrate all medical devices in a clinic or chain of clinics with all Health Information/EMRs/EHRs and is designed to be remotely managed with a user-friendly web interface.  The solution is easy to update and is always up-to date when standards and medical device specifications change.  The solution is available either On-Premise or as a Software as A Service solution on either Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or the Google Cloud Platform.
