Atlas Development Corporation today announced plans to participate in
the HIMSS 2013 Interoperability Showcase, to be held at the Ernest N.
Morial Convention Center, La Nouvelle Ballroom Level 2, in New Orleans,
LA, March 3-7, 2013.
The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase is part of the HIMSS 2013 Annual
Conference and Exhibition. This year's keynote speakers include
President Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States
of America, and Eric J. Topol, Scripps Health and Professor of Genomics
for The Scripps Research Institute.
Atlas Public Health has been working in partnership with the Centers for
Disease Control (CDC), the Public Health Data Standards Consortium, and
Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) in developing
the technology to allow public health departments to receive case
reports directly from hospital electronic health record (EHR) and
laboratory systems. This technology has been successfully demonstrated
in various pilot programs and is now available through Atlas Public
Health's WorldCare suite of software.
During the HIMSS 2013 Interoperability Showcase, ATLAS will use its
WorldCare suite of public health software, including EHR Gateway, and
ATLAS' iOn Public Health eporting Service, to demonstrate how a health
department can receive public health case reports and electronic lab
reports (ELRs) from hospital systems by utilizing the standards outlined
by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative within the
Patient Care Coordination Technical Framework.
WorldCare boasts a highly configurable surveillance and case management
system that allows users to receive alerts and take immediate action to
protect the public. "We are proud to be part of this showcase
demonstrating the effectiveness of the IHE profiles in facilitating the
vital communication between hospitals and public health agencies,"
states Mark Marostica, Atlas Public Health Vice President of Global
Business Development. He continues, "Through our partnership with the
CDC, ATLAS is able to keep our clients at the forefront of improving
data interoperability between systems, while protecting the patient and
community by utilizing our effective WorldCare solutions."
