SAIC announced this week it will showcase the company's solutions designed to improve quality, efficiency and safety of healthcare at the 2011 Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference and Exhibition Interoperability showcase later this month.
SAIC plans to demonstrate its healthcare repository for measuring and reporting patient care quality. The repository uses a Health Level Seven base format. SAIC's solution stores quality measures definitions and generates reports based on the definitions.
The definitions and reports are then transmitted over the Nationwide Health Information Network to meet regulatory compliance and meaningful use reimbursement requirements.
“SAIC is committed to helping healthcare organizations break down barriers to sharing health information,“ said Steve Comber, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. “Our interoperability showcase scenario is an example of how SAIC is applying domain and technical expertise to develop innovative solutions that will help transform healthcare for 21st-century requirements.“
SAIC will also preview its Online Interactive Virtual Environment at the conference. The OLIVE software platform is a 3-D, virtual healthcare training and communications tool used to simulate trauma and injury, and keeps deployed personnel connected with their families.
