Endeca chosen for chronic disease registry

TORONTO – eHealth Ontario, an agency of the Government of Ontario, has selected Endeca, of Cambridge, Mass., a developer of search and business intelligence software, to provide solutions for the upcoming chronic disease management system (CDMS) and portal project. The chronic disease system will be used initially to better manage diabetes care throughout the province.

CDMS will feature Endeca’s search, analytics, and Guided Navigation experience to provide a single, rich user interface that will allow members of the medical community to easily search and share relevant content, and provide enhanced care to diabetes patients throughout Ontario.

The CDMS will be an interactive, real-time information tool to develop care plans and monitor clinical results to improve treatment. The system will build on eHealth Ontario’s provincial identification and access systems infrastructure to ensure the secure identification of patients, providers and relevant diabetes healthcare services, based on common informatics standards and access technology.

Through the new system, providers will be able to manage the care of patients with diabetes according to recommended guidelines, securely receive data from sources such as Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) claims and laboratory test results, and produce reminders, alerts and reports to help improve the quality and safety of patient care.

“We are thrilled to partner with eHealth Ontario to implement a healthcare management system that represents such an important initiative for the province,” said Roland Gossage, vice president, Canadian Operations, Endeca. “By enabling the authorized search and retrieval of medical data in a single interface, Endeca can give physicians the ability to effectively access information pertinent to the care of their patients, thereby creating a higher quality of diabetes healthcare throughout Ontario.”
