The Unity Health System in New York, US, has adopted the dbMotion Solution, an interoperability platform, as part of the healthcare provider’s health information exchange efforts.

The solution is expected to enhance Unity Health’s advanced patient-centred medical home (PCMH) capabilities, as well as care management and population health initiatives under the New York State-funded programme the Unity Community Diabetes Collaborative.

Unity Health System MD and chief medical informatics officer Margaret Donahue said the ability to access and use patient information is essential to the delivery of quality of care. "The dbMotion platform will serve as the foundation by providing a longitudinal patient record to support our efforts to connect with our employed providers," she said. "It will also leverage the local Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) to improve communications with providers across the community and state as well."

The dbMotion solution is also expected to allow semantic interoperability among Unity Health’s 70 locations, which include hospitals, primary care and speciality ambulatory practices, long-term care and home health professionals, as well as 300 community providers. Unity Health is also planning to install dbMotion Collaborate, an application that providers a unified and up-to-date ‘snapshot’ of a patient’s care pathway on their desktop.

Unity Health System VP and CIO John Glynn said dbMotion will become a critical part of their IT strategy, which will focus on improving communications with physicians. "They will be able to analyse patient-specific health trends at the point of care, as well as put data into a broader, population-centric context," he said. "We anticipate that dbMotion’s Collaborate will prove particularly valuable to Unity’s diabetes patient management programme by helping identify and close gaps in care."
