Apixio’s Medically Intelligent Search Featured in Allscripts Application Store and Exchange
SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Apixio Inc., the leading provider of clinical integration and medically intelligent search solutions for private health data, announced that its Community Search product has been tested and approved by Allscripts and is now featured in the Allscripts Application Store and Exchange on the company’s ClientConnect website. Apixio is available today for users of Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM) 5.5.
“We are excited that Sunrise Clinical Manager clients can now leverage Apixio’s intelligent search technology to retrieve key clinical information from their EHR and also from multiple systems in the community,” said Connie Suozzo, Vice President of Product Development for Allscripts.
Bob Rogers, Chief Scientist at Apixio, said “According to a report in the New England Journal of Medicine, 71% of patients with a past splenectomy did not have it documented in their coded problem list, resulting in a major deficit in the number of patients who received a required and life-saving pneumococcal vaccination. This serious issue exemplifies the common and complex dilemma: How can every member of a patient’s care team construct a complete and accurate medical problem list? The coded data is just the tip of the iceberg, as silos of pertinent medical data are locked up within scanned documents and free text documents. Apixio Community Search can unlock the information in these disparate silos, and perform true care coordination with our intuitive search solutions.”
Apixio Community Search makes electronic health data actionable, and the integration with Allscripts takes this functionality to the next level by enabling hospital caregivers to perform searches directly from within their Sunrise Electronic Health Record. By leveraging optical character recognition, natural language processing and machine learning technologies, Apixio enables care providers to quickly extract pertinent medical information from the vast number of scanned images and textual documents in a patient’s record.
“Healthcare providers can coordinate care more effectively when they have instantaneous access to records from other providers on the patient’s care team. Furthermore, provider organizations can improve population health outcomes when given the ability to identify and act on specific groups of patients based on any given set of clinical metrics,” said Darren Schulte, CMO at Apixio. “Healthcare in the U.S. is trending towards delivering higher quality and more cost effective care, and Apixio’s solution when combined with Sunrise from Allscripts can help healthcare organizations achieve these goals.”
