Chinese Community Health Care Association Teams up with Apixio to Deliver Patient Centric Health
SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Apixio Inc., the leading provider of clinical integration and search solutions for private health data, and Chinese Community Health Care Association (CCHCA), a provider of healthcare to the community of San Francisco, have launched the first ever medically intelligent search solution that enables physicians to securely retrieve clinical information from other providers on a patient’s care team.
“Apixio’s Community Search (ACS) solution supports CCHCA in our efforts to move towards a more connected and patient-centered health system,” according to Jonathan Everett, IT/EHR Manager of CCHCA. “Apixio makes medical information retrieval as simple as a web search, allowing our physicians to have secure and comprehensive access to a patient’s complete health history from within our NextGen Ambulatory Electronic Health Record System,” says Everett.
In an effort to contain cost and improve patient care, the U.S. government has provided monetary incentives and guidelines for healthcare organizations to adopt health information technologies that enable them to manage and report the quality and health of their patient population. “The Apixio solution clinically integrates data from across a community of providers, thereby improving care coordination, patient engagement, decision support and population health management,” states Jenny Field, Apixio Marketing Director. “Our Apixio Community Search takes advantage of the latest advances in natural-language-processing, optical character recognition and machine-learning methods to extract key clinical information from across the community to improve clinical decision making, workflow efficiency, and claims processing.”
According to Dr. Roger Eng, Radiologist at CCHCA, “Apixio creates a medical information bridge between CCHCA healthcare providers, allowing them to evaluate the patient’s complete medical history within the health system, so providers can more effectively navigate the patient’s medical history as the patients move from one provider of care to another.”
