Allscripts has announced that its community interoperability platform, dbMotion™ will be made available to the Australian market through the cloud via Microsoft Azure. The dbMotion™ health information exchange platform solves the problem of patient health information being scattered across many systems and sites by aggregating and harmonising data, delivering the information clinicians need in a usable and actionable format at the point of care.
The cloud-based solution offers the same capabilities as the on-premise version but the subscription model will enable faster implementation of the interoperability service and lower annual upgrade cost helping organizations to leverage the technology with less dependence on internal IT resources. The value extends to population health as well since Allscripts will also offer its Population Health Analytics solution (PHA,) powered by dbMotion™, via Azure. dbMotion™ has been demonstrated to reduce the cost of care delivery, enable physicians to provide more informed patient care and drive clinical outcomes and improve patient satisfaction and confidence in their care.
The dbMotion™ solution is a critical component of Allscripts’ comprehensive, community-connected population health management platform. dbMotion™ is an adaptable architecture that enables healthcare organizations to address their specific population health priorities, such as risk stratification, care coordination, transitions of care and patient engagement.
“Australian healthcare providers desire a platform that enables them to meaningfully integrate and act on their patients’ health information,” said Allscripts’s Adelaide-based Chief Medical Information Officer for the Asia Pacific region, Dr Rohan Ward.
“By offering access to dbMotion™ features through the cloud, it will help lower the barrier to entry for health services and physician groups looking for true interoperability and empower them to make more informed decisions for safer, more efficient care,” added Dr. Ward.
General Manager of Worldwide Health, Microsoft Corp., Neil Jordan said, “We’re delighted to see Allscripts offer a cloud-based platform to enhance provider access to healthcare information. Microsoft Azure provides global scale and enterprise-grade security for Allscripts and its customers, with additional benefits for clinicians gained through the integration with dbMotion™.
“This is such an important part of providing Digital Transformation in the industry, and Allscripts is a leader with the breadth of their population health offerings and the completeness of their vision.”
Allscripts will be promoting dbMotion™ to Commonwealth and State and Territory governments as well as public and private hospitals and primary healthcare organisations.
