Revolutionary Data Integration and Management Platform Solves Connectivity and Interoperability Challenges
ATLANTA, July 25, 2017 — Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced that the company will exhibit its ALLOY™ Platform for Healthcare at the 25th annual American Hospital Association (AHA) Leadership Summit. It will be the first time Liaison displays its award-winning platform at the prestigious AHA event. The conference will be held July 27-29 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.
Executives, physicians and trustees from the country’s top hospitals and health systems will attend the conference to trade ideas on critical issues in the healthcare sector and discover new solutions that can help them optimize operations and financial performance. The event is an ideal venue to discuss the ALLOY Platform for Healthcare, which is designed to integrate data from a variety of sources, including electronic health records (EHRs).
The ALLOY Platform for Healthcare was built from the ground up to solve integration, interoperability and data management issues in a healthcare context. The platform enables hospitals and health systems to leverage data from across the care continuum, including information from legacy applications and unstructured clinical notes. Analysis of this data helps administrators and clinical leaders manage costs, improve patient outcomes and enhance care coordination.
As hospitals transition to new reimbursement models, IT administrators who use aging middleware like Cloverleaf and eGate™ are looking to cloud-based solutions like ALLOY to consolidate their disparate and growing mix of data sources, and to overcome interoperability challenges. It is a complex issue. Larger hospitals, those with more than 500 beds, already integrate data from an average of 25 unique data sources including an average of six electronic health record (EHR) systems1. The number of data sources and technology applications hospitals use, requiring aggregation and integration for enterprise benefit is expected to expand over time as technology enhancements come to market, but also as hospital systems continue to merge and acquire other hospitals, practices and clinics.
A recent report from the Aberdeen Group revealed that 84 percent of integration middleware will be replaced over the next four years. The independent analyst group recommends that organizations seeking a more modern approach to data integration and management “find partners that provide not only a rich set of connectivity options, but also staff that can meet a wide range of needs.”
With Liaison’s managed services approach, hospitals that use the ALLOY Platform for Healthcare also gain access to a team of experts who harmonize data and place information in a framework that is meaningful for the organization. This allows hospitals to thrive in an evolving healthcare sector, receiving accurate, timely data that helps them successfully shift to reimbursement models that emphasize care quality and efficiency.
“Hospitals and health systems have had to adapt to new reimbursement models and evolving care standards driven by technical innovation,” said Gary Palgon, Vice President of Healthcare and Life Sciences Solutions for Liaison Technologies. “The disruption will continue as new medical technologies come online and data volume increases. Forward-thinking health information technology leaders and clinicians understand that additional information can lead to better results from both an operational and clinical perspective, but keeping up with increasing data volume and velocity can be overwhelming.”
“That’s where the ALLOY Platform for Healthcare can help,” Palgon continued. “The platform gives hospitals the insight they need to succeed while participating in programs like MACRA, which shifts reimbursement from a volume to a value-based model. By breaking down data silos and integrating information from all sources, the ALLOY Platform for Healthcare gives hospitals the tools required to adapt to a changing environment and to better serve their communities.”
The Liaison team will be available at the conference to discuss how the ALLOY Platform for Healthcare can help hospitals and health systems manage complex data integration and data management needs at booth #117. Learn more about Liaison at www.liaison.com.
