12 May 2011, San Francisco, CA – Clinithink and Alameda County Medical Center (ACMC) have signed a MOU to begin collaboration focused on improving patient care and service efficiency by integrating Clinithink’s CLiX technology into their existing EHR system.
ACMC is recognised as a leading integrated-healthcare network of hospitals and clinics available to the greater Alameda County population. ACMC serves the public at six locations and offers a full range of services to over 360 000 uninsured and medically needy residents. Partnering with Clinithink is a component of ACMC’s vision to develop clinical programs centered on patient-orientated care as well as improving innovation and efficiency to respond to the healthcare needs of the community.
Clinithink’s CLiX technology adds structure and meaning to clinical narrative and free-text and allows medical professionals to better understand and improve performance related to decision-making, operational efficiency, outcomes and revenue. Furthermore, by unlocking the meaning within unstructured or free-text clinical data, the CLiX engine aims to create transparency and improve efficiency in the ACMC healthcare system through enabling clinical support at the point-of-care.
Chief Information Officer of ACMC, Mark Zielazinski said, “We are confident that the MOU between ourselves and Clinithink will further ACMC’s commitment to provide comprehensive, high-quality medical treatment by incorporating contemporary facilities and technology that best support progressive healthcare and the community we serve.”
Clinithink’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr Chris Tackaberry said, “We are excited about exploring the benefits that CLiX technology can add to an integrated health care system like ACMC. We believe that Clinithink’s innovative technology will streamline business processes, improve research and outcomes, and allow ACMC to harness the knowledge and power stored in their clinical data to effect significant change in their medical delivery process measured against patient and physician experience.”
With this partnership Alameda County Medical Center becomes the latest forward thinking primary and urgent care medical service to embrace CLiX technology as an integral part of modernising healthcare delivery.
