Red Hat has announced that University Health Network, a Toronto-based healthcare and medical research organization, has transformed its core hospital information system using Red Hat Integration to improve data accessibility across specialized patient care applications throughout the organization.
With an enhanced integration solution, University Health Network is able to connect previously disparate environments to consolidate, transport and improve the security of critical healthcare data in support of better patient outcomes and clinical research needs.
Atif Chaughtai, Senior Director of Global Healthcare Business, Red Hat, said: “Data Interoperability is a key foundation for driving innovation in the healthcare industry. Interoperability has been a huge focus of government regulations in order to drive down the cost of healthcare and improve patient outcomes. Red Hat’s open source supported platform enables organizations such as University Health Network, to focus on delivering improved patient care and experiences.”
Leon Goonaratne, Senior Director, Digital, University Health Network, said: “The systems that drive many aspects of our workflow, such as admissions, health records and research, don’t automatically interact with each other. With Red Hat Integration, we’ve decreased our integration management efforts and critical data can be delivered to support time-sensitive patient care and health research.”Click below to share this article
