iWay Software Releases Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI)

Based on iWay's Enterprise Information Management (EIM) and HL7 Integration Suites, EMPI Ensures Data Integration Within Healthcare Organizations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  iWay Software, an Information Builders company and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, today announced the release of iWay Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI), a repository that identifies patients in an integrated delivery network across healthcare operational systems such as patient registration, scheduling, lab reports, clinical, and financial systems.

Built on a robust foundation that includes the iWay Enterprise Information Management (EIM) and HL7 Integration Suites, this comprehensive repository makes it easier and more cost-effective to track and coordinate critical medical information across multiple boundaries and jurisdictions, including patient electronic health records, immunizations, physicians and care providers, quality reporting indicators, prescriptions, laboratories, and electronic lab orders.

The Mount Sinai Medical Center, an internationally acclaimed center for excellence in clinical care, education, and scientific research in medicine, is currently using iWay EIM to help it automate its data quality and integration activities.

Mt. Sinai is using iWay EIM to keep track of patient records across its network, despite challenges in automating records such as changing addresses, data inconsistencies, and updating patients' conditions and prescription details. The iWay EIM Suite enables medical professionals at Mt. Sinai to get a consistent, up-to-date view of the patient despite the dynamic nature of electronic medical records.

"iWay EMPI allows for easy information tracking across boundaries and jurisdictions, meeting the requirements of the State Government Healthcare Information Exchange (HIE) and Local Government Regional Healthcare Information Organizations (RHIOs)," said Dave Watson, chief operating officer at iWay Software. "Ultimately, ensuring accurate and complete patient information improves overall healthcare quality while reducing medical errors and advancing the delivery of appropriate, evidence-based medical care."
