Emergint's HealthSIS supports KY Community Surveillance
Built on Emergint's Common Framework, HealthSIS provides real-time reportable condition surveillance, notification, reporting work flow, and situational awareness for both hospitals and local public health departments in some of the Commonwealth of Kentucky's largest metropolitan areas. The KY Community Surveillance project is sponsored by Kentucky Hospital Association and employs secured HealthSIS installations for public health reporting management at the community level.
Improved public health reporting
Connected inside the hospital firewall, HealthSIS scans lab result messages in real-time for reportable conditions; relevant messages trigger notification and work list population. Hospital staff leverage a populated reportable condition form, consistent with the KY EPID200, to complete each report to local public health in an efficient and secure manner. HealthSIS is removing the fax machine and its inherent security risks from the reporting process and simultaneously reducing public health reporting effort by up to 80%. Browser-based HealthSIS can be used identically across desktop, portable, and mobile devices in the health care environment.
Real-time situational awareness
Local Public Health (LPH) officials receive notifications within their HealthSIS installation as de-identified lab results from participating hospital organizations, followed by the appropriate completed reports. LPH can also view these completed reports over time within CDC EARS or across their geographic area within Google Earth. As report information is updated within seconds after completion by hospital staff, LPH can manage their situational awareness with a few clicks at any time from nearly any browser-based device. In 2012, LPH will begin submitting completed reports electronically from HealthSIS to the KY NEDSS Base System installation via PHINMS, enabling real-time electronic reporting across all jurisdictional layers.
Emergint's Common Framework:
A platform for data collection, integration, and management
Emergint knows Enterprise Data Integration
Data Integration activities strive to construct composite data from disparate parts and thereby enable enhanced business intelligence. To this end, organizations that are challenged with integrating applications throughout their enterprise face a complex and costly endeavor.
Big league results on a small budget
Emergint's Common Framework is a data integration middleware tool set that has evolved from organizational and market needs. Whether your goal is surveillance, analytics, or decision support, the Common Framework offers a low-cost and flexible foundation on which to build data collection solutions for data from disparate sources and on which to prepare said data for business needs. Emergint's Common Framework is a significant evolutionary step beyond Emergint's first software product, the Data Collection and Transformation System (DCTS).
