Orion Health, Intel and Oracle plan Mobile Clinical Assistant pilot project in Spain

Orion Health : 05 July, 2007  (New Product)
A group of healthcare technology providers comprising Intel, Oracle and Orion Health plan to pilot the use of the new Motion C5 mobile clinical assistant (MCA) platform at the Hospital Universitario Son Dureta in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Using RFID technology, integrated into the MCA, to read patient wristbands, the doctor or nurse will be able to access patient information such as demographics and clinical results (blood tests, scans).

The deployment of Orion Health's clinical software onto the Motion C5 MCA will enable patient data to be available at the point of decision regardless of whether the patient is in a bed, on a stretcher, or being moved in a wheelchair. The healthcare professional will be able to validate the data by sharing it directly with the patient. The Motion C5 is based on the Intel mobile clinical assistant platform and was designed following Intel's extensive research with clinicians around the world.

“Hospital Son Dureta has made enormous progress in supporting clinicians with information technology in the past couple of years,” said Joan Marques, CIO at Hospital Son Dureta. “The next logical step is to make these information tools mobile so clinicians can access patient data wherever they happen to be in the hospital. We are excited about the potential of mobile devices such as Intel's MCA to improve clinical practice and deliver safer care to patients.”

Orion Health and Oracle technologies are already implemented at Son Dureta Hospital, bringing together clinical data from multiple systems across the facility. The Oracle-Orion Health solution comprises a clinical web portal, a central repository for clinical data, and an electronic whiteboard for the accident and emergency department. These systems were implemented in 2006 in partnership with Fujitsu Services.

Son Dureta uses Oracle Healthcare Transaction Base (HTB) as a centralised, standards-based repository for clinical data. Relevant data from the hospital's various existing systems is fed into Oracle HTB via Orion Health's Rhapsody Integration Engine, where it is normalised to allow for automated clinical decision support and important clinical comparisons. Clinical information stored and maintained in Oracle HTB at Son Dureta Hospital includes clinical orders, lab test results and patient demographics.

Data stored in Oracle HTB is available for immediate recall and viewing by authorised clinicians via Orion Health's Concerto Medical Applications Portal. Concerto presents the HTB data in an on-screen format that is easy to read and act upon.
