HSSC Wins 'Best in Show’ at HL7 FHIR Applications Roundtable in New Orleans

January 22, 2018

We're proud to announce that we earned the honor of Best in Show at the HL7 FHIR Applications Roundtable in New Orleans for our clinical data repository for South Carolina hospitals, which we developed in partnership with Smile CDR. 

“We are honored that our app won Best in Show among nearly three dozen application developers that have leveraged FHIR to create solutions to today’s health IT challenges,” said James Agnew, head geek at Smile CDR, in a prepared statement given to Healthcare Informatics. “Having a single data format and a consistent architecture across institutional boundaries and across disciplines will allow Health Sciences South Carolina to integrate data from many sources into clinical research, and to integrate insights from that research into clinical care. This is an elusive goal for many research organizations, but FHIR is helping make it reality in South Carolina.”

HSSC President & CEO Kenneth Deans and James Agnew gave a joint presentation on the application at the roundtable, and you can watch it here.

In Healthcare Informatics's article, which succinctly summarizes the roundtable, it writes that "the solutions presented in New Orleans ranged from a platform designed around FHIR to enable healthcare organizations to automate clinical care pathways and seamlessly integrate with the system of record, to real-time precision dosing software designed for clinicians to predict the optimal dose of medications that require therapeutic drug monitoring, to helping manage chest pain in the emergency department. Presentations included innovative solutions from Arizona State University, Cedars-Sinai Health System, Regenstrief Institute, GE, InterSystems, Microsoft, Prometheus Research and many more."
