Clinical Integration Suite of Solutions

In 21st century healthcare, it's vital that physicians have real-time access to aggregated patient information across the continuum of care. Yet many healthcare organizations face challenges in achieving clinical integration with existing electronic health record (EHR), practice management and other health connectivity systems within and outside their healthcare networks.


Clinical Data Interoperability

To address the growing demand for clinical data interoperability, 4medica developed its cloud-based health information exchange platform, the Integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR). Its modular infrastructure allows physicians, hospitals, health systems and other care delivery organizations to implement the clinical data exchange platform in its entirety or as individual applications, including Lab4, Imaging4, Path4, Meds4, and Inpatient4.

iEHR: Health Information Exchange

4medica's flagship health information exchange solution, iEHR, provides physicians with a unified view of patient data across the spectrum of care. The comprehensive clinical data exchange system integrates patient information from clinical information systems including lab, radiology, PACS and pharmacy systems.

With 24x7 online access to patient-centric records, clinicians have the vital patient data, medical alerts and decision-support tools to achieve the goal of meaningful use: improving patient outcomes while reducing costs. Clinicians also benefit from iEHR's longitudinal patient history, a basic building block for evidence-based care, chronic disease management and population health.

iEHR MODULES:

Lab4 : Lab Outreach

For years, clinicians have struggled to access patient information from both inpatient and outpatient settings across multiple lab locations.With 4medica's lab connectivity solution, Lab4, physicians can quickly and easily place lab orders and receive lab results online, reducing the potential for costly duplicate tests. Lab4's intuitive interface, designed in collaboration with physicians, also enhances clinical productivity with streamlined lab order workflows between physician offices, patient service centers, outpatient clinics, nursing homes, home health and more.

4medica's advanced lab connectivity functionalities further contribute to collaborative care with EHR bidirectional interfaces, longitudinal lab data with automatic trending of selected values, and reference lab integration.

Imaging4 : Clinical Integration for Radiology

4medica's Imaging4 application provides a single view of aggregated radiology imaging data via an intuitive online interface, allowing clinicians to place orders, receive reports and view PACS images from 4medica's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) imaging solution.

When integrated with 4medica's Lab4 application, Imaging4 enables clinicians to view radiology data from various labs and radiology centers – both inpatient and outpatient – on the same screen, streamlining staff workflows and driving cost efficiencies.

Path4 : Clinical Efficiency for Pathology

Clinicians can easily access Path4's web-based solution to quickly order and view pathology results. The intuitive online interface offers clinicians 'drag-and-drop' technology to easily identify biopsy locations on organ images, complete with automatically generated labels with location descriptions. The image with biopsy locations is then securely transferred with the requisition to the pathology lab and is available for reference by the physician with the result, supporting decision-making at the point of care.

Meds4: Next Generation ePrescribing

Critical for reducing potential medical errors, 4medica's Meds4 advanced ePrescribing solution delivers real-time medical alerts and notifications when clinicians place medication orders as well as when lab values change, contributing to greater patient safety and connected care. The extensive medical alerts and notifications include drug-to-drug interactions, drug-to-allergy interactions and drug-to-lab interactions with optional graphs.

Designed to improve clinical efficiency and cost-savings, Meds4 provides real-time insurance eligibility, formulary and medication history information via 4medica's partnership with SureScripts.

Inpatient4 : Connected Care, 24x7
4medica's Inpatient4 solution provides affiliated and employed physicians with online access to census-based inpatient charts at the point of care, during hospital rounds or while mobile. One of the key components of 4medica's health information exchange platform, iEHR, Inpatient4 interoperates with existing EHR, lab, radiology, pharmaceutical and dictation systems to supply health connectivity within and outside hospital walls.
