‘Health information exchange must be centralized around the patient.’
The Hague, October 25, 2016 - Dutch software supplier Fenestrae has been successfully active in the German Market for over 20 years. Focusing on the elimination of paper from key business processes, and optimizing the digital exchange of valuable business documents, Fenestrae has taken this knowledge and experience and used it in their solution for healthcare: Fenestrae OMNI. At Medica 2016, Fenestrae will showcase OMNI to the German market for the first time.
A recent survey shows that many patients in Germany still experience a ‘gap’ between government legislation on healthcare digitization and their own expectations. The need for the digital exchange of healthcare data is growing and with the introduction of the E-Health-Gesetz (eHealth legislation) the path has been outlined to fulfil this growing need.
Patient centered information exchange
Care is increasingly organized around the patient which furthers the need for better exchange of medical information. This allows for quicker and better diagnosis, at a lower cost, with less impact on the patient, and also reduces the risk of errors. Fenestrae OMNI was developed with focuses on patient centered care, compliancy with internationally recognized standards, guaranteeing patient privacy and data security.
Fenestrae OMNI is a software platform for patient centered information exchange, directly and exclusively between practitioners, based on international IHE standards for health information exchange. By using the IHE standard, the exchanged documents containing medical data are fully encrypted and therefore safely transferred. This guarantees the privacy of the patients and the complete protection of personal data. Transaction logging further ensures accountability and facilitates security audits. Another benefit is that no special IT-structures and domains are needed.
Digitization of paper communication
In this day and age the exchange of medical data further notes a requirement for the elimination of paper document flows. Fenestrae solutions enable healthcare organizations to digitize all document flows. By integrating with existing systems (email, Hospital Information Systems, Electronic Health Records etc.), solutions are easy to implement, paper documentation can be eliminated, and realize immediate process improvements.
