OKLAHOMA CITY and BELLEVUE, Wash., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- INTEGRIS Health, Oklahoma's largest health care system, recently implemented Amalga from Caradigm, a Microsoft Corp. and GE Healthcare company, to improve quality of care through enhanced care coordination and patient engagement. Amalga is a health intelligence platform that integrates patient health information stored across multiple care settings, allowing clinicians to more rapidly gain critical insights about patients and identify opportunities to improve care.
"INTEGRIS, like many health systems across the country, implements initiatives that increase quality, remove costs, eliminate procedural duplication and establish vehicles through which patients can more easily engage with their health records," said Bruce Lawrence, president and chief executive officer of INTEGRIS Health. "Amalga augments our already advanced technology capabilities and makes it possible for us to empower physicians, other clinicians and patients themselves with greater information accessibility."
Amalga also powers INTEGRIS' newly implemented advanced readmissions management program to help INTEGRIS reduce the number of preventable patient re-hospitalizations within 30 days of discharge. Amalga allows physicians to more easily identify those patients at highest risk of readmission and implement care plans upon discharge designed to reduce that risk.
INTEGRIS will also engage Amalga's connectivity with Microsoft HealthVault, a personal health application platform, to offer patients the ability to store personal medical information generated during visits to INTEGRIS hospitals or clinics.
