Even with the advances in digital medical record data, less than 50% of a patient’s health information is available in an electronic format. One organization is offering an enhancement solution for existing patient information. Integrated Patient Record (IPR) aggregates, shares, and optimizes data for a complete patient-centric view.

This interesting information was found on Red Orbit in their article, “New Integrated EMC Software Solutions Advance Patient Care, Reduce Healthcare Costs.” IPR leverages EMC technologies to capture and share disparate patient data and optimize their processes by analyzing the aggregated information. This technology is based on open standards to optimize patient care.

This technology offers the ability to find the information you need in a timely manner. This can also be achieved by creating strong taxonomies. Proper indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
