Geisinger fully integrates OBERD's suite of products into EPIC

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
COLUMBIA, Mo., March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Geisinger and OBERD have jointly developed bidirectional data integration tools for OBERD into EPIC using standard EPIC interfaces. Geisinger's EPIC system can now automatically assign appropriate outcomes instruments to surgical and non-surgical patients. The integration tools send structured data and documents to the EPIC FlowSheet and by patient encounters. OBERD also receives information from EPIC including CPT, Surgical Appointment, Patient demographics, physician Information and more. Additional integration functionality is in process that will result in a single sign-on solution for patients, providers and staff that will eliminate the need to login into OBERD for their activities; all collected data outside of the EPIC system will be accessed through EPIC. Additional functionality being finalized will support the transfer of CCD file data from EPIC to OBERD to enable more comprehensive analysis and benchmarking of patients' outcomes data in concert with other objective patient data.

This effort was championed by Michael Suk, M.D., J.D., MPH, MBA, chair of the Geisinger Musculoskeletal Institute and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, to reduce the data collection burden on patients, surgeons and staff, and to advance research and benchmarking activities through the use of OBERD's orthopedic outcomes data base, which is the largest data set of its type in the world.

Dr. Suk commented that, "Eliminating the need for an additional log in for patients, physicians & staff increases compliance, and enables the use of critical data, from and by everyone involved."

He added that, "Assessing patient recovery in comparison to others with comparable characteristics in the OBERD global database allows us to self-assess in a meticulous way and improve more thoroughly."

Ali Hussam, PhD, CEO and Founder of OBERD, added, "This partnership evidences that common goals and collective effort can achieve valuable capabilities in complex systems. This outcomes collection and reporting functionality is now proven to work in the EPIC system and can be deployed for other practices having this sophisticated EMR."
