E-health practices and techniques have the ability to optimize healthcare services in all of the different fields of the healthcare industry. Emergency medical services are some of the most important medical services that are offered to patients that have the capability of saving lives and making real impacts on people’s lives and wellbeing. Subsequently, when e-health technologies combine with mobile and smartphone technology, the opportunities become limitless.
One of the most influential integrated delivery networks, Partners Healthcare, has recently collaborated with InterSystems, which is a well-known web based healthcare information system that aims to produce high-end results in delivering medical services. This technology has been tested in many parts of the world, such as the Netherlands and the United States to enhance the way patients are treated. For this reason, Cambridge Massachusetts has earned the spotlight in their valiant efforts in using this breakthrough technology to increase expediency in healthcare when it counts the most.
Intersystem is widely known for their contributions in database systems and platforms, such as connectable devices and intercommunication between healthcare professionals to produce quick results for patients. For instance, this technology has the ability to produce critical, objective information for emergency medical services everywhere. This CACHÉ database system can track the emergency response time of each group of healthcare professionals to observe patterns in efficiency and quality care.
This mobile health technology integrates all facets of healthcare, such as clinical, administrative, lab and even patient care capabilities. Mobile e-health measures increase effective communication to produce real time results that all healthcare practitioners can utilize when treating patients, especially in the ER. According to Partner’s associate director of clinical systems integration John Pappa’s, “…we used what we call a continuity of care document (CCD) factory, a compound service that integrates many other Caché -based services via InterSystems Ensemble…”
This development is in line with the standards outlined by the Healthcare Information Technology regulations that are now in place throughout the nation. These devices allow the accurate transmission of patient summary clinical documents for exchange between healthcare professionals to optimize the speed at which information is applied to the diagnosis and treatment of each patient. This encrypted data makes logical sense for providers to access in the line of duty to ensure patient safety and accuracy.
This technology also increases turn-around times because of how it organizes patient data in secure online databases. This company has worked hard to tweak certain aspects of this development such as high-speed mobile processors, browsers, and operating systems to create lightning fast access speeds to find the information that is needed with the touch of a button. As this technology continues to develop and evolve, emergency services and police stations are getting themselves hooked up in the Netherlands to reach heights that have never been experienced before in delivering healthcare services.
