Fraser Health Selects dbMotion's Interoperability Platform

By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor

dbMotion, a provider of connected healthcare solutions, recently announced that its interoperability platform has been selected by Fraser Health, a 12-hospital integrated delivery network (IDN) serving 1.7 million people in the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada.

The solution integrates patient information from disparate health information technologies, and delivers it to clinicians at the point of care. Harmonizing health information across the enterprise and throughout the community, the dbMotion interoperability solution semantically organizes volumes of data, enabling providers to easily access and manage information within familiar workflows.

The dbMotion solution bridges clinical settings to facilitate seamless transitions of care and nurture referral relationships. Built on an SOA platform, dbMotion combines health data to present a 360-degree view of the patient's health status to facilitate better care and disease management, and to prepare organizations for healthcare reform.

Apart from creating a longitudinal patient record, the platform will also help any Fraser facility to connect with other provincial data sources in the future.

"The ability to ensure a patient's comprehensive health record data is available, in real time, across the Fraser Health continuum of care will not only enable us to improve how we treat patients, but will eventually allow us o enhance care throughout the province as we exchange health information with other care delivery organizations across British Columbia," said Philip Barker, Fraser Health's vice president of Informatics (News - Alert) & Transformation Support.

"We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Fraser Health and are looking forward to the go-live later this year," said Peter McClennen, president of dbMotion North America, adding that Fraser is the second Canadian healthcare enterprise to deploy its platform. "As the desire to improve quality of care continues to be a major focus for the industry, the ability to turn data from disparate technologies into actionable information will be invaluable."
