Boston, MA, USA – May 30, 2014 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, is supporting the realization of a seamlessly connected and cohesive healthcare system. A member of the SmartAmerica Challenge and its Closed Loop Healthcare team, PrismTech has developed an intelligent data sharing platform, Vortex™, a crucial enabler of real-time data sharing between hospitals, clinicians and patients in the home.
The SmartAmerica Challenge is a White House Presidential Innovation Fellows project that brings together research in cyber-physical systems and combines test-beds, projects and activities from different sectors to show measurable benefits to the economy and in daily life. An expo to showcase these activities is set for June 11 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The Closed Loop Healthcare team is tasked to showcase a framework and highlight the benefits of a healthcare system built upon the ubiquitous sharing of information between medical devices, healthcare applications, clinicians and patients. Vortex provides an interoperable solution that allows a patient’s data to be shared securely and in real-time with healthcare professionals and other clinical information systems via the Cloud and using mobile technologies.
By streamlining the healthcare environment into a cohesive system, experts believe the industry can reduce costs, provide better care, and achieve improved health outcomes.
PrismTech and several other Closed Loop Healthcare team members are also part of the Medical Device “Plug-and-Play” (MD PnP) Interoperability Program (www.mdpnp.org). MD PnP is promoting innovation in patient safety and clinical care by leading the adoption of patient-centric integration of medical devices and IT systems in clinical environments.
Vortex™ is designed for business-critical Internet of Things systems and provides efficient, secure and interoperable real-time device-to-device and device-to-cloud information sharing. It is a crucial enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of real-time data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service, such as in environments such as healthcare, transportation, smart cities, industrial automation and smart energy.
