An Introduction to UnifiedMD Medical Informatics The time has come for a new paradigm. The traditions of healthcare must now be united with tomorrow’s technology. The entire healthcare industry must now be empowered, enabled, and enhanced by IT. Clinical Information must now be portable and transparent. Access to health must have no barriers. This is our vision. This is the core of the new paradigm. We intend to define and develop this new paradigm through our products and services.
Information Technology & Tomorrow’s Healthcare Industry All healthcare organizations, healthcare professionals, and private and public providers must now adopt IT in order to make tomorrow’s healthcare… safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable. Improved performance will depend on innovative system designs, not legacy architecture. It is the firm belief of Unified Medical Informatics that…
Information technologies can be used to improve access to clinical information and support clinical decision making.
An improved information infrastructure is needed to establish effective and timely communication among clinicians and between patients and clinicians.
Information technologies can be used to help coordinate care across patient conditions, services, and settings over time
Clinical decision support systems can be used to assist clinicians and patients in selecting the best treatment options and delivering safe and effective care.
Health care delivery has been relatively untouched by the revolution in information technology that has been transforming nearly every other aspect of society.
The development and application of more sophisticated information systems is essential to enhance quality and improve efficiency.
Passionate Commitment Leaders of healthcare organizations, public and private providers, and health informatics vendors must make a renewed national commitment to building an information infrastructure to support healthcare delivery, consumer health, quality measurement and improvement, public accountability, clinical research and education. This commitment may lead to the elimination of most handwritten clinical data by the end of the decade. Over the last several years, healthcare organizations have increasingly looked at information technology to offer a strategic advantage in a traditionally competitive business. Information technology solutions have given an edge to those companies that employed them early in the race. Critical issues that confront the healthcare industry include:
International Standards Compliance
Accurate and Consistent Information
Integration for Collaborative Purposes
The Challenge of Today and Tomorrow Healthcare organizations must design and implement more effective organizational support processes to make change in the delivery of care possible. Health providers, health professionals, educational institutions, and the Government Health efforts must collaborate to create an environment that fosters and rewards improvement by:
Creating an infrastructure to support evidence-based practice.
Facilitating the use of information technology.
Preparing the workforce to better serve patients in a world of expanding knowledge and rapid change.
