BridgeHead Software has been recognised as winner of the “Best Healthcare Data Repository” award in the 7th annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards.
The programme is conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organisation that recognises the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market.
This year’s programme attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.
James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough, said:
“Bridgehead Software’s HealthStore helps in retiring […] legacy applications – saving time, money, and resources; all whilst reducing security vulnerabilities, such as cyberattack and/or system failures from ageing applications and hardware.
“Congratulations to the BridgeHead team for taking home this well-deserved 2023 MedTech Breakthrough Award.”
BridgeHead’s HealthStore is a clinical data repository and registry for all healthcare information.
The company’s latest release of HealthStore has focused on full support of the FHIR standard for data interoperability.
This enables HealthStore to query and retrieve data from other FHIR-enabled systems.
HealthStore also provides a place to consolidate, store, protect, and provide access to the information it receives from those FHIR queries – making it available as part of the longitudinal patient record.
In addition, HealthStore also allows other FHIR-enabled systems to query its registry and retrieve the data held within its repository.
Additionally, as HealthStore manages all manner of healthcare data, it is able to decommission applications ranging from EMRs to LIMS; PACS to emergency department systems – all using a single repository and registry.
This allows hospitals to now extract all of the data from their inherited, duplicate and/or legacy systems, then store, protect, and access it within HealthStore’s clinical data repository.
With HealthStore, staff across the ecosystem will be able to access their healthcare information anytime, anywhere, and on any approved device either directly via HealthStore’s web interface or through integrations with the EMR (or other systems).
HealthStore also acts as the central registry and repository to aid hospitals in meeting their HIPAA compliance obligations, particularly the delivery of the USCDI and the designated record set (DRS), thereby avoiding penalties associated with the ONC’s information blocking rules.
John McCann, Vice President of Global Marketing at BridgeHead, said:
“Thanks to our latest innovations and product developments, we believe HealthStore is the only enterprise-wide, cross-department, clinical repository and registry worldwide that can consolidate, store, protect, and provide access to a combination of structured and unstructured documents, medical images, and discrete data; all in one place!”
