Harrison Memorial Hospital creates an Enterprise patient record with BridgeHead Software

Data from six acquired EHRs consolidated into a single, accessible repository and made part of the longitudinal patient record

Woburn, MA – 18 December 2018 – Harrison Memorial Hospital (HMH), a provider of health and care services in Kentucky, recently completed a significant project to consolidate patient data from six acquired primary physician practices by implementing BridgeHead Software’s Independent Clinical Archive (ICA), HealthStore™.

As part of its ambitious plans to expand its facility to a regional medical center, HMH not only made the decision to upgrade its primary MEDITECH EHR to version 6.15, it also acquired six regional physician practices. As part of those acquisitions, HMH also inherited six independent eClinicalWorks EHRs, each containing valuable, current and historic clinical information.

HMH’s goal was to make all of the data from these systems available to clinicians and support staff as part of an enterprise patient record, through its primary Electronic Health Record (EHR), allowing it to standardize on the MEDITECH platform across the organization. The challenge was how to extract the data from the six eClinicalWorks databases and make it available as part of the longitudinal patient record easily accessible to clinicians and support staff through its MEDITECH EHR.

Creating one centralized clinical repository for all patient information
HMH had been a longstanding customer of BridgeHead Software, utilizing its backup and recovery solutions to protect the hospital’s primary healthcare applications. However, after seeing a demonstration at MUSE International 2017 in Dallas, Texas, HMH was convinced that HealthStore would provide the solution it was looking for: namely, a centralized clinical repository to house data that was extracted, migrated and indexed from its inherited EHRs. The project was completed within six months and resulted in a single, enterprise-wide patient record offering a complete 360-degree view of vital patient information, as well as allowing HMH to retire the six inherited eClinicalWorks systems saving significant time, resources and money.

David Asher, Physician Practice Support Manager, at Harrison Memorial Hospital explains: “Having just updated our current MEDITECH system, we were keen to consolidate the patient information from our six inherited eClinicalWorks systems and integrate it into our primary EHR. We have a responsibility to ensure the efficient and safe delivery of care to patients and part of that is giving our physicians access to a complete record containing both current and historic data from across our health system.”

Overcoming conflicting and duplicate patient IDs
The specialists at BridgeHead intelligently extracted, migrated and indexed 1.2 million documents from the existing eClinicalWorks databases in order to create a complete patient record. But, before the data could be fully ingested, BridgeHead worked with HMH to create rules to reconcile and resolve data issues, primarily where there were conflicting and duplicate patient IDs, by utilizing the patient database within HealthStore. Not only did this eliminate the laborious and time-consuming process of manually translating the records into the hospital’s EHR, it guaranteed that the extracted data corresponded with the correct patients.

At the end of the process, 100% of the data was positively reconciled into HealthStore and made easily available ‘in patient context’ through the newly upgraded MEDITECH 6.15 environment.

Martha Sullivan, CIO at Harrison Memorial Hospital continues: “Running duplicate applications across our new regional care center was never an option for us – it’s costly, inefficient, resource intensive – and, had we not faced the issue head on, the situation would have grown more complicated over time. Yet, the consolidation of multiple systems was not something we took on lightly.

“However, after working with BridgeHead to retire the eClinicalWorks applications, we no longer have to worry about where this patient information resides – it’s housed in a central repository out of direct ownership of the originating application. What this means for us, as we continue to expand and potentially acquire other practices, is that we don’t have to be concerned with how we handle inherited systems and their data. HealthStore is now in place to ingest any patient or administrative information we need that will best serve our physicians and patients: from consultation to diagnosis and treatment; inpatient or outpatient services.”

Jim Beagle, President and CEO of BridgeHead Software comments: “Tackling duplicate and legacy systems, and the data silos they create, is a vital part of the digital transformation taking place in healthcare today. By consolidating inherited data, the physicians at HMH are now able to easily access the full patient history, all available through their primary EHR, and reap the benefits of an improved clinical workflow. This ultimately enables the hospital to focus on its mission of providing high-quality health and care services to residents in Harrison County and the wider community.”

Virtustream Launches Industry-Leading Cloud Automation and Security Capabilities for Enterprise Customers

Virtustream Enterprise Cloud enhancements accelerate time-to-value for enterprises moving mission critical apps to the cloud

LONDON, UK – Tuesday 18th December 2018 – Virtustream, an enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business, today announced a major upgrade to Virtustream Enterprise Cloud that includes significant cloud automation and security enhancements, which enable enterprises the unprecedented ability to automate key tasks while maintaining security levels – a multi-part process that previously required manual oversight. This technology evolution builds on Virtustream’s expertise in delivering highly scalable, secure and high-performance cloud services for mission critical enterprise applications.

The enhancements also feature a foundationally new version of the xStream cloud management software platform including an enhanced architecture and application programming interface (API), in addition to the ability to address many of the specific challenges presented when migrating and managing enterprise applications in the cloud.

“Enterprise applications and workloads require special handling and care,” said Deepak Patil, SVP, Product and Technology, Virtustream. “Historically, enterprise cloud customers had constraints that precluded them from flexibility and conveniences— such as quick provisioning—that are leveraged by cloud consumers with less complex use cases. This was primarily due to concerns about security, backups, monitoring and other issues. Virtustream’s new enhancements simplify and automate the most complex actions delivering immediate value to customers.”

This new upgrade extends automation deeper into previously manual cloud migration and management processes without compromising security or requiring onerous coordination of related operations. The new Virtustream Enterprise Cloudenhancements include the following capabilities:

• Cloud Management: Enhanced cloud management capabilities deliver increased levels of integration through APIs and automation from infrastructure to platform services, reducing time-to-cloud for historically difficult to migrate applications. These enhancements allow enterprise-level customers the ability to self-provision virtual machines (VMs) with host-based automated configuration of security services including anti-malware, intrusion detection, file-integrity monitoring as well as the automated coordination of backup and monitoring in minutes.

This cloud management not only shaves significant time off of the normal process for configuring VMs in an enterprise context, but also reduces the possibility of manual errors during configuration. Additionally, customers can now create, manage and report on VM profiles that pre-define VM parameters, making the self-provisioning process even faster.

• Application Automation: With these upgrades, Virtustream is driving automation capabilities into the application layer. These capabilities include APIs, tools and application specific automation tasks designed to reduce operational processes, reduce the total cost of ownership, and dramatically improve the agility and flexibility of applications running in Virtustream Enterprise Cloud.

For example, with this new release, customers running SAP applications in Virtustream Enterprise Cloud can now automate start/stop operations in the applications within minutes through a self-service portal with automated coordination of the adjacent processes such as monitoring suppression/enablement, backup disabling/enabling and security vulnerability scanning. This allows Virtustream customers the ability to optimise costs by automatically shutting down applications during weekends and maintenance periods without creating custom tooling or management scripts.

• Expanded Reporting, Manageability and Visibility: Also in this release, Virtustream Enterprise Cloud’s self-service management portal offers important new features that provide customers tools for viewing application resource consumption and the ability to group and categorise applications for improved billing transparency. Virtustream helps customers to optimise their usage and create cost efficiencies through its industry-leading MicroVM technology, which provides the ability to avoid the use of pre-sized instances and achieve cost savings through a combination of aggregation and pay-as-you-go, usage-based billing.

In addition to these enhancements, Virtustream Enterprise Cloud, a VMware Cloud Verified service, will leverage the power of the latest Dell Technologies portfolio through the use of VMware’s hybrid cloud technologies and the latest Dell Technologies infrastructure.

“Enterprises no longer need to be held back by mission critical workloads,” said Patil. “There is a place to move them using new cloud operating models that compress processes and provide automation and efficiencies that clear space for new innovations, capabilities and businesses. As a long-standing industry expert in moving mission critical applications to the cloud, Virtustream understands the pressure that enterprise IT leaders are under and is designing solutions that will not only solve these pain points, but also will substantively improve time-to-value for cloud projects and empower our customers to confidently embrace the future.”

About Virtustream
Virtustream, a Dell Technologies business, is the enterprise-class cloud company that is trusted by organisations worldwide to migrate and run their mission-critical applications in the cloud. For enterprises, service providers and government agencies, Virtustream’s xStream® Management Platform and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) meets the security, compliance, performance, efficiency and consumption-based billing requirements of complex production applications in the cloud – whether private, public or hybrid.

Beta Version of LEI Search Tool 2.0 from GLEIF Provides Enhanced Options to Easily Access Open, Standardized and High Quality LEI Data

All stakeholders are invited to comment on the beta version of the new LEI search tool by June 30th 2019

December 2018 – Basel – The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) has published the beta version of its new Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) search tool 2.0. Using the tool, market participants can easily explore information on more than 1.3 million organizations contained within the public LEI data pool. Version 2.0 of the search tool provides enhanced functionality including the option to identify corporate ownership structures or pinpoint other identifiers that have been mapped to an LEI. With this release, GLEIF offers improved access to a unique and free data source that allows corporate dots to be connected globally based on open, standardized and high quality LEI data.

Any interested party can access and search the complete LEI data pool free of charge and without the need to register using the web-based LEI search tool developed by GLEIF. Similar to a sophisticated, easy to use search engine, it empowers users to quickly find LEI data without any technical restrictions. With the launch of its LEI search tool 2.0, GLEIF introduces additional features, including:

  • New user interface supporting quick and customized research: The new and intuitive user interface is built on a Google-like approach that allows users to quickly research specific information on a legal entity by entering a search term into a text bar. Queries can be tailored to the specific needs of LEI data users with the use of search options and filters.
  • Easily identifiable ownership information: Market participants can now identify the direct and ultimate parents of a legal entity and, vice versa, the entities owned by individual companies, provided that both child and parent entities have an LEI.
  • Other identifiers mapped to the LEI automatically showing with search results: GLEIF’s ‘Certification of LEI Mapping’ service ensures that organizations which map the LEI to their own identifiers use state of the art methodologies to do so. This cooperation model was pioneered together with SWIFT with the launch of the open-source Business Identifier Code (BIC)-to-LEI relationship files. The LEI search tool 2.0 automatically pins the corresponding BIC to an LEI record, where applicable. As new mapping partners join the program, other identifiers linked to an LEI will also show with search results.

For those seeking to dig even deeper into the LEI data pool, the new LEI search tool 2.0 offers an ‘expert mode’ which enables users to configure and combine their own search filters to facilitate the design of complex queries. A complex query is one in which there is a combination of multiple, and potentially limitless, variables, e.g. to identify all LEIs registered within a defined timeline whose legal name contains the term ‘bank’ and that own companies in a specific country.

Stephan Wolf, GLEIF CEO, comments: “The LEI offers market participants a standardized, one stop approach to entity verification in the digital age, facilitating quick, consistent and accurate information on both client organizations and other business partners and suppliers. The new LEI search tool 2.0 makes it even easier to take full advantage of the publicly available LEI data, supporting even more use cases and applications.”

Wolf adds: “To ensure the tool continues to evolve in line with market needs, GLEIF invites comments on this beta version of the LEI search tool 2.0 by June 30th 2019.”

The LEI connects to key reference information that enables clear and unique identification of legal entities participating in financial transactions. Each LEI contains information about an entity’s ownership structure, answering the questions of ‘who is who’ and ‘who owns whom’. GLEIF makes available the Global LEI Index, which contains historical and current LEI records including related reference data in one authoritative, central and open-source repository.

Notes to Editors:

About the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF)
Established by the Financial Stability Board in June 2014, the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) is a not-for-profit organization created to support the implementation and use of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). GLEIF is headquartered in Basel, Switzerland.

GLEIF services ensure the operational integrity of the Global LEI System. GLEIF also makes available the technical infrastructure to provide, via an open data license, access to the full global LEI repository free of charge to users. GLEIF is overseen by the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee, which is made up of representatives of public authorities from across the globe. For more information, visit the GLEIF website at https://www.gleif.org/en.

About the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)
The LEI is a 20-character, alpha-numeric code based on the ISO 17442 standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization. It connects to key reference information that enables clear and unique identification of legal entities participating in global financial markets and/or in financial transactions.

The LEI is currently required in, among others, the United States and the European Union for the execution of transactions with, and reporting of, counterparties to over-the-counter derivative trades. Many other regulators around the world are implementing the LEI for financial market transactions and regulatory reporting or are considering doing so. Details of regulatory initiatives mandating LEI use are available on the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) website: https://www.gleif.org/en/about-lei/introducing-the-legal-entity-identifier-lei.

History of the Global LEI System
In 2011, the Group of Twenty (G20) called on the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to provide recommendations for a global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) and a supporting governance structure. This led to the development of the Global LEI System which, through the issuance of LEIs, now provides unique identification of legal entities participating in financial transactions across the globe. The FSB emphasized that global adoption of the LEI underpins multiple “financial stability objectives” and also offers “many benefits to the private sector”.

LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee (LEI ROC)
The LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee (LEI ROC) is a group of public authorities from across the globe established in January 2013 to coordinate and oversee a worldwide framework of legal entity identification, the Global LEI System. In its role as overseer of the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF), the LEI ROC ensures that GLEIF upholds the principles of the Global LEI System.
