Microsoft Demos New Health Solutions at HIMSS09

Microsoft Corp. is showcasing new solutions designed specifically for healthcare providers, caregivers and patients, as well as solutions-applied healthcare scenarios.

Along with its industry partners, Microsoft will demonstrate four healthcare scenarios built on the interactive, multi-touch Microsoft Surface platform to improve communications between providers, physicians and patients and add to overall patient experience. Featured are:
- Doctor patient consultation. Infusion Development created a Microsoft Surface application for Texas Health Resources to enhance physician patient interaction. This application displays and allows doctors and patients to share medical information such as cardiac images, dynamic charts, clinical documents and integrated records from Microsoft HealthVault.
- Pediatric neurological rehabilitation. Vectorform LLC, in cooperation with Cook Children’s Health Care System, has created a suite of applications to assist with motor control and learning for neurological rehab.
- Virtual clinic and doctor consultation applications developed on Microsoft Surface between Allscripts and Springfield Clinic.
- Clinical collaboration to manage patient flow. MEDHOST Inc. has developed a hands-on solution that provides real-time information to caregivers and decision-makers to manage the most acute situations, from disaster to staffing to patient flow.

Microsoft will also showcase the Amalga unified intelligence system (UIS) and Microsoft Amalga Hospital Information System (HIS) with specific scenarios designed to free health data assets to drive discovery,

In addition, visitors to the booth will see new uses for Microsoft HealthVault, including managing records before and after hospital visits, managing chronic care at home, and emergency/urgent care preparedness.
