Pittsburgh, Pa., December 9, 2009 — dbMotion, a provider of health interoperability and intelligence solutions, has been chosen to provide an interoperable electronic health record for use in the Canadian province of Manitoba. The dbMotion™ Solution will help connect acute and community care providers throughout the province, thereby providing each resident with a secure and private lifetime record of key health history and care that will be accessible to authorized caregivers.
The project, implemented in partnership with IBM Canada, adheres to pan-Canadian standards including privacy/access rules for collecting, transmitting and using clinical data to facilitate interoperability among healthcare systems and applications within the province and across Canadian jurisdictional boundaries. The EHR will include a patient’s health data, such as Medication history, laboratory results, diagnostic images and hospital records. Design and implementation of the project is expected to start immediately with implementation beginning in 2010.
dbMotion fulfills the vision of connected healthcare. dbMotion’s health interoperability and intelligence solution enables healthcare organizations and health information exchanges (HIEs) to meaningfully integrate and leverage their information assets by placing an integrated patient record within clinicians’ workflows. dbMotion closes information gaps between caregivers, enhances decision making and drives improvements in the quality and efficiency of patient care.
