DSS and HLN Consulting Partner to Offer Enhanced Immunization Forecasting Solution
HLN Consulting’s Immunization Calculation Engine (ICE) Now Integrated Into DSS’ Immunization Dashboard (iDB)
JUNO BEACH, Fla. (July 17, 2018) — Document Storage Systems, Inc. (DSS), a leading provider of health information technology (HIT) solutions for federal, private and public healthcare organizations, announced that it has partnered with HLN Consulting to offer an enhanced forecasting solution that provides clinical decision support (CDS) for immunizations.
HLN Consulting’s open source Immunization Calculation Engine (ICE) is now integrated into the DSS Immunization Dashboard (iDB), to bring patient-specific immunization forecasting to the provider without an interface to a registry. iDB provides a visualization of the patient’s historical record from the treating facility, as well as information from the Immunization Registry. The clinician’s workflow is streamlined to allow documentation, provide patient education, view reconciled forecasting, and order in one place. iDB is part of DSS’ commercial offering, Juno EHR.
“Through this partnership, we are able to further strengthen iDB’s power by offering more robust immunization forecasting capabilities,” said Mark Byers, CEO of DSS. “This powerful tool – including its seamless integration into clinical workflows – holds great promise for improving vaccination rates.”
The ICE software evaluates a patient’s immunization history and generates the appropriate immunization recommendations, which are communicated to the clinician at the point of care, as well as the patient, health department or other users. The solution provides pre-configured rules that follow current clinical guidelines and that are updated as the guidelines change.
“We are excited to have our ICE solution fully integrated into the DSS’s iDB to further help clinicians positively impact individual outcomes and improve the health of the public,” said Noam H. Arzt, President, HLN Consulting.
