  • Mapping UK Prescriptions

    25 February 2014
    By Valentina Lakhina, Healthcare Solutions Specialist

    Following the data.gov.uk initiative, the UK publicly releases raw data from the government or public services, making it available to everyone, to ultimately increase government accountability and improve public services. Yet to actually be of use, this raw data has to be processed, analyzed and presented in a human-friendly way, rather than simply be machine-readable.

    The DataArt team took up this challenge and started an R&D project to provide users with an easy way to find information about the usage of prescriptions across all general practices in England. The project resulted in a medical application that visualizes information about the cost and category of prescriptions and displays trends, such as which medications are most often used in a specific area or to treat a certain category of disease.

  • From EHR to HIE

    13 June 2013
    By Valentina Lakhina, Healthcare Solutions Specialist

    To date, 43.5% of physicians reported having a basic EHR and only 9.8% met meaningful use criteria. This means practices still have a long way to go as Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements put yet a bigger challenge right in front of them. If this fact fails to impress you, consider this one – over a third of physicians want to replace or upgrade their ambulatory EHR systems, according to HIMSS Analytics’ 5th Annual Ambulatory Practice Management & Electronic Health Record Study that came out this June. The study also shows that almost half of the physician groups plan to join HIE.

  • Implanted Medical Devices: Bliss or Threat

    27 May 2013
    By Valentina Lakhina, Healthcare Solutions Specialist

    With more and more medical devices being connected to web-enabled IT systems, it is simply a question of time before the implanted devices start failing killing those they were supposed to save. While there is a lot of speculation as to how a hacker can take over your heart pacemaker and send it haywire, something as common as a malfunction or a computer virus could have just as deadly consequences. To avoid that we need two things. First is to pay more attention to quality assessment when it comes to something as important as life-saving medical devices. The second is the highest level of data security for protected health information (PHI). Without either we cannot be sure the technology that’s meant to make our lives better won’t be used against us.

  • Transparency in Healthcare: How It Improves Service Quality

    15 May 2013
    By Valentina Lakhina, Healthcare Solutions Specialist

    How is it with all the achievements in medicine and technology at hand, patients still fail to receive the required treatment? Surprisingly, it is often all about data… or rather, lack thereof.

    Sharing patients’ data is the keystone of understanding patients’ needs and thus improving service quality. This implies that a payer failing to equip providers with adequate patient data impedes care coordination. At the moment healthcare providers, payers and other involved parties lack transparency; this can be gained when “payers and providers develop more transparent policies and procedures for analyzing business and clinical data”, as stated by Cynthia Burghard, research director at IDC Health Insight, in her blog.

    Once the new rules have been set, it will be necessary to put theory into practice and that’s when software development firms will step up to save the day.
