I had a great opportunity yesterday afternoon to spend some time with a clinician - we’ll call him Dr. Jones, not his real name - who practices in a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Bay Area.   We were in the clinic to review with Dr. Jones the Apixio application integrated within his EHR to provide easy access to and intelligent retrieval of his patient’s longitudinal clinical history, both discrete and textual data, from across the affiliated Planned Parenthood clinics in the Bay Area.  In addition, we wanted to get a glimpse of his workflow using the EHR as it is configured.   About 18 months ago, his clinic implemented an EHR, initially transitioning over paper records for patients who are seen for their reproductive health needs.

Can the creation of a longitudinal patient record from multiple sources of clinical information facilitate better care coordination between physicians, improve outcomes and reduce wasteful duplication of services? Based on Apixio's ability to deliver information from discrete data plus that which is found in narrative text, documents and images to the appropriate provider, we believe all three of these goals can be achieved.

Just returned from the Allscripts Western Regional Users Group (AWRUG), where over 150 people, representing 30-plus healthcare organizations, collaborated over a 3 day period in Los Angeles. Great networking and collaboration with Enterprise EHR clients around healthcare topics including Meaningful Use, ICD-10 and population health. Apixio's CMO Dr. Darren Schulte's presentation surmised that quality and financial objectives cannot be achieved when 60% or more of key clinical information stored as narrative text and documents are virtually hidden from analytic tools. The Clinical Knowledge Exchange (CKX) reveals this data to make it meaningful and actionable.
