Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) June 08, 2011 -- Soren Technology, a leading provider of EHR, healthcare revenue and payment cycle management solutions, and health information networks focusing on clinical exchange, offers warnings related to drug-drug interactions and allergy-checking, drug-disease contraindications and formulary support in the e-prescribing module, as well as the use of health reminders to improve patient care.
"The basis for deciding what care each patient individually needs rests in connecting patient data to medical knowledge. Historically, that information has rested in the physician's mind - his body of knowledge and experience", says Dr. Faiz Fatteh, CEO of Soren Technology. "As humans we are fallible. A new, secure foundation requires two elements external to the mind: electronic information tools and standards of care for managing clinical information. An EHR like ours provides physicians with that back-up and support, and improves patient care and outcomes".
Decision support systems (DSS) can be deployed with real time adjustments for new disease conditions, drug warnings, treatment guidelines and more with BioStation's distributed architecture. Intelligent alerts need to be delivered at the point of care and should also be shared with patients. The DSS is broken down to "local" and "global" messages so that information intelligence can be adapted regionally and locally. A community adds to the DSS and benefits as more users join. Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) utilized by Soren Technology's Bio-Station include timely test reminders based on patient demographic data, drug-drug interactivity during e-prescribe activity and clinical value trending.
