For those not at HIMMS this week, here’s a video with the Wisconsin Health Exchange discussing their choice of Amalga from Microsoft for their solution for integrating and aggregating data in the ER rooms. I covered the original release a short while back, additional information here.
In addition, I had the chance to speak with Steve Shihadeh, vice president, Microsoft Health Solutions Group and we talked about this particular solution as well. More information here and under the related reading section. Amalga uses the technology of SQL Server as part of the entire solution to connect all the emergency rooms. In the video they discuss the reasons for their selection and how the system is functioning. BD
