Health care IT specialist Zoeticx announced the launch of a health care industry software suite designed to improve patient outcomes, enhance the quality of care, contain costs and simplify hospital administration.
The suite of four software modules—CareIntelligence, CareSynergy, CareHistory and CareCompliance—is designed for the new health care landscape ushered in by the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, and the changes within the medical industry itself.
The products are currently supported on Apple's iOS devices and engineered using mobile, cloud and service-oriented architecture (SOA) technology. Zoeticx's solutions are able to integrate with any electronic medical record (EMR) database, commercial or proprietary, and are available from the Apple Store.
CareCompliance features dynamic policy management, which automates quality policy enforcement and is designed to help manage compliance and documentation requirements more cost-effectively. It also provides quality controls and audit trails to enable continuous process improvement and better coordination of care.
The CareHistory module includes Dynamic Data Services, offering care providers a single, consolidated view of current patient medical information and health history seamlessly, regardless of data source.
"We created Zoeticx by looking at these complex and life altering challenges hospitals face every day from a uniquely IT based perspective," Thanh Tran, CEO of Zoeticx, said in a statement. "By applying some of the automation technology already used by other industries, but in a way specifically designed for the special needs of the healthcare industry, we know hospitals will save on resources and improve patient outcomes, simply by allowing healthcare providers to focus on what is most important, the patient."
CareIntelligence works as an electronic replacement for the nurse's flow sheet, which is relied upon in critical care environments, and allows navigation through medical information with an interface to navigate various aspects of a patient's clinical status.
Finally, CareSynergy offers a medical messaging system to help enable better collaboration, communication and follow-through using software automation to minimize preventable medical errors.
CareSynergy also distributes patient-centered information at the right time, to the right care provider, for the right treatment, while also providing proactive notification, tracking and escalation, optimizing collaboration, clinical handoffs and workflow.
"From a medical industry perspective, Zoeticx offers a real break-through," Howard Nearman, MD, MBA, said in a statement. "The Zoeticx collaboration platform addresses persistent issues in patient care that previously have remained unresolved. Now with the advent of the Affordable Care Act, the perfect storm has arrived to usher in real change and Zoeticx is in the right place, at the right time for that realization."
