There has been much discussion lately in healthcare IT media about judging or determining the effectiveness of an IT solution. These conversations are the result of the plethora of solutions that are available today to aid in the delivery of healthcare. Some are expensive and their effectiveness to provide a true ROI and actual operational support in the delivery of healthcare services have been called into question.
My criteria for judging IT solutions are based on two fundamental concepts: interoperability with other IT systems and the breadth of the solution to provide answers to challenges for any size healthcare provider. The Phynd Unified Provider Management Platform (UPM) is working today to solve the challenges of unifying and managing provider information in hospitals as small as 57 beds and in some of the nation’s largest health systems, including Duke University Health System, Mount Sinai, and Kettering Health Network.
The Phynd Platform is integrated today with all major EHR systems, Epic, Cerner, Allscripts, MEDITECH, and many others, so clients can see an immediate impact on the quality, quantity and reach of their provider data across all of their IT systems and user populations.
Research shows that updating a single provider record in a health system is complex and often requires communication with 70+ individuals in 10+ departments, leading to concerns about the quality of data, wasted process times, breakdowns in communication and confusion over the appropriate owners of data. The Phynd Platform certainly solves all of these challenges in any size healthcare facility and provides the interoperability to work with all existing IT systems.
