InterSystems, Clinical Architecture Team Up for Improved Clinical Decision Support

Cambridge, Mass.-based InterSystems has announced a strategic partnership with Carmel, Ind.-based healthcare terminology management company Clinical Architecture to deliver clinically relevant information to healthcare professionals for when they need it most.

In a press release this week, officials noted that clinicians are often forced to sift through massive volumes of information in a patient’s record to locate the most pertinent and actionable takeaways. For example, a physician seeking diabetes history and recent test results may have to retrieve and review a multitude of unrelated lab tests, immunization records, and doctors’ notes to find the disease-specific information they need.

But now, in conjunction with Clinical Architecture, InterSystems has developed a concise “clinigraphic” presentation of condition-specific information contained in the comprehensive, longitudinal patient record, leveraging ontologies developed using Clinical Architecture’s terminology management tools.

With clinical inferencing technology, the solution also aims to help identify previously undiagnosed or undocumented health conditions. “At the touch of a button, healthcare providers can easily and efficiently view the most pertinent information for patients within a population health management cohort, including medication lists, comorbidities, and diagnostic tests related to a specific condition,” officials said.

The clinigraphic solution will be on display at the annual HIMSS17 conference in Orlando, Fla., February 19-23.
