NEW YORK (360Dx) – InterSystems announced today a partnership with Rhodes Group aimed at supporting TriCore Reference Laboratories efforts to use laboratory data to improve patient health care.
Rhodes Group, a subsidiary of TriCore, will use InterSystems HealthShare to create and manage unified views of patient data as part of TriCore's initiative called Clinical Lab 2.0. By leveraging HealthShare's Informatic Exchange solution, Rhodes Group will create a longitudinal, standardized data repository across TriCore's laboratories "as the foundation for their proactive informatics solutions," InterSystems said in a statement.
According to Cambridge, Massachusetts-based InterSystems, HealthShare is a set of e-health applications based on a "unified" health record, which serves as the basis for "coordinated value-based care and population health management."
Clinical Lab 2.0 is a set of efforts spearheaded by TriCore using lab data to gather new insights into issues such as care gaps, or patients who are high risk. TriCore recently implemented a new IT architecture dubbed C21 and designed by Rhodes Group that streamlines data collection and expands the amount of data held in TriCore's central data repository, in order to give lab personnel, physicians, and patients a more complete picture of patient health.
