NYU Lutheran launches Epic EHR, implements Imprivata patient ID (19.09.2016)
Epic Provides Seamless, Digital Integration & Enhances Communication between Patients & Providers.A massive technological upgrade affecting virtually every aspect of NYU Lutheran has now forever changed the healthcare experience at the Brooklyn health system.

Recently launched, Epic, a state-of-the-art electronic health record (EHR) system integrated with 22 ancillary systems, now allows patients to easily access their medical record at any time, better communicate with doctors, efficiently share medical history and allergy information with multiple providers, and fully integrate with sites, including NYU Lutheran Medical Center, NYU Lutheran Family Health Centers, and affiliated faculty group practice offices throughout the NYU Langone Health System.

Two new paperless systems will now create a more secure and seamless patient experience when accessing protected health information: PatientSecure™, cutting-edge biometric palm-scanning technology used for patient identification at registration and check-in; and MyChart®, an online application that allows for home or mobile access to medical records and secure messaging with doctors.

The patient-friendly technologies greatly ease patients' experience of accessing and receiving medical care at any NYU Lutheran location in Brooklyn, as well as the facilities at the main campus of NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan. "Digitizing health records has become a national imperative in order to modernize healthcare for patients and consumers,” says Robert I. Grossman, MD, the Saul J. Farber Dean and CEO of NYU Langone. "This enormous undertaking is a key component of our commitment to provide our patients in Brooklyn the world-class care that is a hallmark of the NYU Langone health system."

The Epic installation—the largest clinical go-live in the NYU Langone health system to date—has been a major milestone in the expansion and harmonization of our core information technology (IT) systems across the entire institution. It included the integration of ancillary systems such as radiology, pharmacy, laboratory, ambulatory, perioperative, patient transport, blood bank, and billing.

The planning and development phase for the Epic and the ancillary systems launch lasted over a year, with hundreds of individuals from Medical Center Information Technology and various clinical and administrative departments rigorously analyzing existing EHR systems at NYU Lutheran to ensure that the new system fit perfectly. Considerable effort went into creating workflows tailored to NYU Lutheran’s patient population. The new system uniformly consolidates what had been different record-keeping systems in NYU Lutheran's 22 inpatient and outpatient care settings.

The Epic integration was funded partly by a $29.2-million grant from New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program. One program goal was to build a clinical platform that connects patients and providers across the health system. Through Epic, NYU Lutheran is now linked with the larger health information exchange network Healthix and can utilize a sophisticated analysis and reporting platform that will improve patient and provider experience. Data from the hospital, Family Health Center sites, and throughout the entire NYU Langone Health System is now shared seamlessly.

“The go-live of Epic in our Family Health Centers brings us one step closer to realizing our goal of connecting all of our patients and providers and transforming care in Brooklyn,” says Larry K. McReynolds, executive director of NYU Lutheran Family Health Centers. ”As we continue to go live across the network and in our school-based health centers, we are extremely excited about Epic’s ability to immediately improve communication between patients and physicians regarding treatment plans, lab test results, appointments, medications, and self-monitoring. This is truly a new frontier as we help patients become more involved in their personal care plans with the latest technology.”

"NYU Langone has made a substantial investment in the future of NYU Lutheran. The challenge was to create a seamless patient experience across the medical center's complex network of facilities and locations and to securely manage volumes of health records," says Nader Mherabi, senior vice president and vice dean, chief information officer at NYU Langone, who is responsible for all IT activities across the NYU Langone Health System. "NYU Langone's years of experience with Epic and various technologies gave us the confidence in our ability to launch a unified comprehensive system at NYU Lutheran that incorporates best practices—in record time. All of these electronic health record innovations and the integration of the NYU Lutheran system offer tremendous benefits to clinicians and patients."

"The integration of NYU Lutheran and these electronic health record innovations have created an efficient, safe, and convenient way we can communicate and deliver healthcare," says Bret J. Rudy, MD, hospital executive director and senior vice president at NYU Lutheran. "We created a seamless way to collect information that respects patients’ time as well as their confidentiality. The end result is improved patient satisfaction and reduced costs. This is an exciting new chapter in how patients experience healthcare at NYU Lutheran."

FDA approves Bayers five year hormonal contraceptive device Kyleena (18.09.2016)

The U.S. FDA  has approved Bayer AG’s new low dose levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) which will be marketed in the US under the brand name Kyleena™. Kyleena releases the lowest daily dose of the hormone levonorgestrel in an intrauterine system for up to five years of effective protection against pregnancy, using the smallest T-shaped body in an IUS available today.

Long-acting contraception is one of the most effective methods of birth control as it does not require user interventions such as daily dosing or monthly re-fills. An LNG-IUS can be removed at any time and offers rapid return to a woman’s natural level of fertility after removal.

“The approval of Kyleena in the U.S. highlights Bayer’s continued commitment to drive innovation and empower women with a broad range of birth control options at different reproductive stages of their lives,” said Dr. Joerg Moeller, Member of the Executive Committee of Bayer AG’s Pharmaceutical Division and Head of Development. “Kyleena provides women with an additional reliable and reversible contraceptive option as it does not require daily user intervention to work.”

Unintended pregnancies remain high globally, with 54% of these ending in abortion in developed countries (1). Unintended pregnancies are particularly high among younger women due to their higher fecundity, compounded by the issue that they frequently do not use their contraceptives correctly (2,3,4,5,6,7,8). Women should talk to their healthcare professional in order to find the most suitable contraceptive method for them within the wide contraceptive portfolio.

The launch of Kyleena in the US is planned for October 2016.In November 2015 Bayer has also submitted an application for the marketing authorization in the EU for this new low dose levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system.

About Kyleena
Kyleena is a small, soft and flexible plastic T-shaped device containing 19.5mg of a synthetic hormone called levonorgestrel. The size of the Kyleena T-body is 28mm x 30mm, and its placement tube has a diameter of 3.8mm. Once placed in the uterus, Kyleena continuously releases a low dose of the progestogen levonorgestrel directly into the uterus. Kyleena provides effective birth control for up to five years and also offers rapid return to a woman’s natural level of fertility after removal.

About the Clinical Development Program for Kyleena
The approval of Kyleena is based on data from a Phase III clinical trial, including 574 nulliparous and 878 parous women from North America, Latin America and several European countries, which has demonstrated that Kyleena is highly effective and well tolerated regardless of age and parity.

The primary endpoint of the Phase III clinical trial program was contraceptive efficacy assessed by the Pearl index. With a Pearl-Index of 0.29 after five years in clinical trials, Kyleena is more than 99 percent effective for each year of use in preventing pregnancy for women who desire a low-dose, long-acting contraceptive option for up to five years.

Moreover, Kyleena was generally well tolerated, with no unexpected adverse events reported. Low incidences of ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, expulsion of the device from the uterus or uterine perforation were seen.

Lee Memorial Health System Chooses RadPRO Mobile 40kW Digital X-Ray System for Childrens Hospitals (18.09.2016)

Virtual Imaging, Inc a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, is proud to announce that Lee Memorial Health System has selected the RadPRO®1 40kW Mobile Digital X-Ray System for its radiology needs at the new Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.

This mobile digital x-ray system is like having a radiography room on wheels. Fast processing times will help the new state-of-the-art, patient centric and family-friendly center to capture high-quality images in routine bedside examinations, as well as in challenging trauma applications.

According to Lee Memorial Health System, it is the largest public health system in the state of Florida; and as such it requires a robust and reliable imaging solution for all of its locations. For more than three years Lee Memorial Health System has depended on RadPRO mobile x-ray systems to fulfill the imaging needs of several of its healthcare facilities. Lee Memorial Health System chose the RadPRO Mobile 40kW Digital X-ray System to meet these needs and provide the high-quality imaging needed for the expansion to its new children’s hospital.

“In opening this new children’s hospital, we needed a product that could offer clear images and flexibility, as well as a minimal learning curve for our healthcare professionals. We chose the RadPRO Mobile 40kW Digital X-ray System for its ability to provide us with the quality of imaging we’ve come to expect from our Canon detectors and the ease-of-use we’ve experienced with our existing RadPRO radiography equipment,” said Kristen Hickey, director of Imaging Services, Golisano Children’s Hospital.

“Before purchasing our RadPRO mobile x-ray systems, we were performing diagnostic radiography exams using Computed Radiography (CR). With the help of the RadPRO systems, we were able to smoothly transition to Digital Radiography (DR), and elevate the level of diagnostic imaging that we provide to the community. This transition resulted in an X- ray dose reduction to the patient, and helped to increase our workflow productivity as compared to using CR technology.”

RadPRO 40kW Mobile Digital X-ray System
Designed for productivity and equipped with a choice of Canon digital flat panel detectors, this portable x-ray system is like having a radiography room on wheels. In addition to providing flexibility in patient positioning and the ability to manage or manipulate images at the patient’s bedside, fast processing times make it easy to capture high-quality diagnostic images for routine diagnosis or trauma.or more information about radiography solutions from Virtual Imaging
