Open and flexible infrastructure for maximum return on IT investment
The integrated solution MEDTERA Region for the management of regional health care is built on the principles of service-oriented architecture (SOA).
Its key advantages are:
Compatibility of the platform: a broad range of system software and equipment is supported, there are no restrictions on localization, integration with systems of national and international workflow
High scalability allows you to support simultaneous work of tens of thousands of users in one medical information system.
Reduced end-user equipment requirements
High level of information security, personal data and electronic archives security
Unified technology standards for cloud computing allows you to switch cloud resources or combine the resources of several providers.
Integration with the MIS, telemedicine system, laboratory and pharmacy to provide the patient with a full range of services.
The component architecture of the MEDTERA Region solution allows the functionality of the solution to be expanded in accordance with the requirements of the region.
Centralized basic services support a holistic medical data system:
One same patient register
Integrated EHR (IEMC)
Registers of medical workers
Register of Medical organizations
Regulatory background information database
The set of services can also be expanded with additional functional modules (centralized, on a regional level) with the following features:
Regional appointment for a doctor
Record of reception through infomats, Internet, mobile applications
Personal accounting system for services rendered
Support for subsidized drug supply systems
Regional analytics and reporting
Build truly integrated systems that automate the “end-to-end” business processes of a health care institution
The integration solution MEDTERA Region is a JavaEE application. An important feature is the support of the "cloud" infrastructure and the virtualization of the hardware and software platform with the ability to access "on demand" based on the recommendation of IETF, W3C, OASIS, OGF, SNIA, WS-I, TM Forum.
As an application server can be used:
any of IBM's WebShere line
Oracle WebLogic 10 Application Server (Oracle Suite 10)
As a DBMS:
Oracle 10 and 11 g
Microsoft SQL 2005 and 2008
MS Windows family
Linux distributions (RedHat, Mandriva, Alt Linux)
UNIX (RHEL, Sun Solaris, HP UX, IBM AIX, etc.) supported by the application server and DBMS used
All this facilitates interaction with third-party applications (both business applications and specialized monitoring and administration products).
Benefits of MEDTERA Region
A platform for development
The solution allows to apply any offers on the market from the best suppliers. Thus, the improvement of processes in the medical institution can be performed gradually, without attracting large investments.
In addition to the MEDTERA Region component, it supports mobility and territorial distribution of applications. The employees of the medical institution feel much more confident if they have at their disposal effective tools to support mobility, such as:
- Access to information systems from various devices, including phones, tablets, netbooks, mobile diagnostic devices.
- The use of different options and communication protocols - from voice to wireless, with reliable tools for ensuring information security.
Implementation through mobile technologies of such processes as an appointment for a doctor, diagnostic data, informing about the results of analyzes, billing and payment of bills, allows to improve the quality of service and improve relations with patients and partners.
Data integration and interoperability is a key requirement in healthcare. Medical errors, which cost not only money but also lives, are most often the result of a lack of the correct information obtained by diagnostic and during the treatment processes.
Therefore, the most important part of the medical information system (MIS) is “data” - directories, classifiers, registers, protocols, documents. On its basis, all the key information about patients and personnel actions is generated and processed.
The data is provided with the requirements of completeness, accuracy, consistency, relevance, mutual consistency between different information systems.
In its composition, the solution MEDTERA Region contains integrate special modules for centralized management of "master" data, tracking the receipt and distribution across all related information systems. An important feature is the data management, regardless of the location of the systems and sources of information.
The modules automatically receive an update from the official reference information, check mutual links in subordinate directories and inform dependent information systems about the need to update these data.
On the toolkit of the solution, you can develop special data adapter programs for those systems that do not have mechanisms for loading external directories or for developers who have difficulties with supporting current versions and formats of the NSI. The platform already has several download adapters for popular medical information systems.
Data management also includes quality control. The solution includes special tools that facilitate the identification of basic data. Using special procedures, you can select common features and remove duplicates.
- Facilitate the interaction of systems within the medical institution due to the unity and consistency of the NSI and classifiers
- The absence of problems in the consolidation of information from different systems in the preparation of statistical and analytical reporting
- Reducing the cost of managing data and eliminating errors
- Phased transition to the integration of data and reference books due to the presence of conversion mechanisms, flexible transformation of fields, record types and formats
An important feature of the platform is its flexibility of the resulting technical infrastructure. In the ecosystem of medical applications there may be different programs of different generations, received from different developers.
Such technologies as MEDTERA Region make it a powerful platform for building composite applications and integrating existing ones:
- Master Data Management
- Support of modern medical standards
- Application and Systems Integration Infrastructure
- Orientation to open standards and protocols
- Multi-platform and scalability
