Dr. Sidney Smith, a practicing physician and President of Anagen Systems, a developer of clinical communication solutions, will be speaking next week at the HIMSS show.
On Tuesday, February 21 at 11:30am, at the Georgia Pavilion Booth #3015, Dr. Smith will describe a solution to healthcare's intractable communication failures - "healthcare is a generation behind other industries in removing the waste, errors and cost to the industry and the patient caused by breakdowns in tracking and communication," explains Dr. Smith. "Every transaction based industry in the country - including shipping companies like FedEx and UPS, airlines like Delta and United, retailers like Walmart and banks like WellsFargo - assign each transactional event with a unique "Confirmation" number to identify, track and manage all activity related to that event."
"The solution set must include a simple chain of custody technology for medical tracking of biopsy specimens, clinical pathology and radiology reports. But more than simply tracking a physical object, the solution must serve as the key to "closed loop" communication and documentation between providers, labs - and the patient. Alerts, notes and patient instructions are incorporated into this solution, yielding dramatic results in quality, outcomes, patient satisfaction and risk mitigation. PathologyTracker, our just-released solution, addresses and exceeds each of these performance criteria."
