The American Medical Association has announced an ambitious new initiative to dramatically improve the organization and interoperability of fragmented health data, and has recruited thought leaders across the healthcare and technology domains to help unleash a new era of better, more effective patient care.
The Integrated Health Model Initiative (IHMI) is aimed at bringing together experts from patient care, medical terminology, and Informatics around a common framework for defining and expressing health data. As an IHMI launch partner, Prometheus joins several leading organizations in affirming their optimism for this new, collaborative approach, and will provide both guidance and technical examples to the AMA team.
“Prometheus is excited to serve as an AMA launch partner for the Integrated Health Model Initiative (IHMI). We believe it presents an opportunity to dramatically improve the state-of-the-art in representing, exchanging, and using health data. If successful, the IHMI will make a vital difference to our many registry clients pursuing clinical research and healthcare quality improvement, and to anyone seeking to turn health data into an actionable, sustainable, and value-generating resource.” Leon Rozenblit, JD, PhD, CEO and Founder.
The IHMI aims to support a continuous learning environment in healthcare, and to enable interoperable technology solutions and care models that evolve with real-world use and feedback, making Prometheus a natural fit. Prometheus is an industry thought leader and principal informatics partner to medical researchers and health nonprofits. It’s comprehensive data registry approach is predicated on delivering scalable methods and technologies that are responsive to evolving industry data standards and uses, while preserving data fitness and reusability. The RexRegistry platform employs both legacy and state-of-the-art data acquisition pathways, and can dynamically transform registry data into the information model best suited to address new questions and analyses.
Our technology and clinical research informatics expertise made us an excellent fit for the AMA’s new interoperability initiative.
