CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Atlas Public Health today announced its plans to participate in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s annual Public Health Informatics conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia from August 21–24, 2011 at the Hyatt Regency. The Company will exhibit its Guardian Public Health Surveillance software, including EHR Gateway, and will participate in the IHE Interoperability Showcase demonstrating how health departments can receive lab reports and immunization and communicable disease data from EHR systems by utilizing established standards.
Guardian Public Health Surveillance software meets surveillance needs, delivers timely alerts, provides tools to control outbreaks proactively, generates reports and supports mandates for public health government communications. The software has the ability to track and enable investigation of disease incidents, patient contacts, outbreaks and group events. Guardian EHR Gateway provides automated reporting of clinical data from hospitals' EHR applications to the public health department, eliminates the need to re-enter data and improves efficiency. And Guardian boasts a highly configurable alerting system that allows users to receive notices related to disease subsets, jurisdictions, status or events that are of interest.
Mark Marostica, Atlas Public Health Vice President of Sales and Marketing, comments, “The EHR Gateway facilitates the connection between medical record systems and public health departments.” Mr. Marostica continues, “It automates the transmission of clinical data to public health departments ensuring that public health officials can easily track public heath events and control outbreaks.”
Atlas Public Health has over a decade of collaborative public health partnerships at the local, state and federal level, including ten years of mission-critical operation in one of the country’s most complex public health environments. “This experience is the foundation for our deep understanding of public health issues and our powerful Guardian solutions for communicable disease and bioterrorism surveillance, contact tracing, outbreak investigation, case management and reporting,” continues Mr. Marostica.
According to the CDC’s website, the 2011 Informatics Conference brings together the informatics and health technology communities in Atlanta to help build the future innovations in public health. The theme this year is Engaging, Empowering, Evolving…Together. More information about the Public Health Informatics conference can be found by visiting http://www.cdc.gov/phiconference/index.html.
