A single view of the patient – essential in theory but elusive in reality

There would be no dispute from any executive in the healthcare sector that having a single view of the patient, across all pathways of care would benefit everyone from tax payer to patient to provider. But history shows that achieving this seemingly simple concept is marred by a minefield of complexity. Silo’d management structures, multiple processes, limited use of common identifiers and a myriad of point-of-care systems are just a few of the road blocks that healthcare organisations face.

However there is a way forward. Heralded by industry experts and clients alike ,the Infinity solution has the unique ability to fuse information from multiple sources in multiple formats to deliver a single insightful view of the patient and all the key performance metrics associated with their pathways of care.

There are four key things that you need to know about the Infinity solution for Healthcare:

Combining Information, Inside and Out

Infinity fuses structured and unstructured data from every source and system connected to patient care.

Infinity combines data from diverse point-of-care systems to provide a single unified view of the patient and their pathways of care. It complements and integrates with the organisation’s existing technologies, negating the need for a “rip and replace” approach. Furthermore it safeguards the organisation by enabling the incremental inclusion of new data sources without the need for coding, using sophisticated mapping capabilities.

Creating a Common Format

Infinity automatically transforms key information residing in a vast array of formats into a common form – enabling connections to be made.

A myriad of care providers, many different processes and a proliferation of systems, means that patient information resides in many different formats. This makes it all but impossible to automatically connect the different pathways of care to get holistic and composite view of the patient treatment being provided.

The Infinity solution has been designed with the ability to handle both structured and unstructured data sources and to transform the multiple formats of patient information into a common form.

A universal format enables information from different pathways of care to be connected and a unified view of patient care to be realised. Furthermore healthcare management and executives can also use the consolidated data to glean key insights into performance metrics imperative to the effective management of the institutions under their stewardship.

Uncovering Links and Creating a Composite View

Infinity uncovers connections and makes the link between seemingly unconnected information, activities and events.

The Infinity solution uses smart and sophisticated non-exact matching algorithms to uncover links, relationships and commonalities across the different pathways of care and the volumes of data it connects.

Even when there is no common patient number or single universal patient identifier, the Infinity solution can track down all data, activities and events associated with any patient for the entire lifecycle of their care. It does this by using logical but non-exact matching algorithms, contextual and taxonomy based searching methodologies.

Driving Action and Delivering Insights

Infinity brings information to life and makes visible meaningful management metrics.

Using the Infinity solution executives, administrators and management have at their finger tips a single view of the patient and all of the performance metrics associated with their care. The solution makes these visible via management dashboards. Authorised users can drill down from the dashboards to review empirical evidence as to drivers behind the numbers. Furthermore the solution enables “what if scenarios” modelling and “cause and effect” analytics to be performed enabling management to focus on service improvements and optimise decision making.

Revolutionary in impact the Infinity solution is a technology that simply should not be ignored.
