dbMotion - sharing medical information

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:16am

dbMotion: "dbMotion is an innovative provider of medical informatics. The dbMotion™ Solution enables healthcare organizations to securely share medical information, creating a Virtual Patient Record by logically connecting a group of care providers and organizations without data centralization or replacement of existing information systems. Healthcare organizations and health information networks (such as RHIOs, LHINs and HIEs) use the dbMotion Solution to share medical information among themselves and with other healthcare organizations. By sharing medical information, clinical staff can make clear critical decisions therefore providing safer and more efficient care. dbMotion currently serves one of the world's largest HMOs as well as other hospitals and health information networks."

This works well in developed countries, but is a very hospital-centric approach. I feel getting patients to own and operate their own PHRs ( personal health records) which doctors and hospitals could tap into ( when they setup their EMRs) would be a better approach in countries like India.
