iLink Systems, an ISO and CMMI certified global software solutions provider, managed Microsoft SI Partner, winner of Microsoft's 2009 Public Sector, Health Partner of the Year award and Mobile Partner of the Year for 2011, today released the new Patient Engagement Framework based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, SharePoint & Server 2010, HealthVault, and other Microsoft technologies.
iLink's Center for Excellence in Technology (CET) team, a dedicated team of 30 people including Architects, developers and domain experts, has developed a new Patient Engagement Framework provides wellness solutions for patients by consolidating personal health information into one easily accessible account. This helps them to become more informed and active in managing their personal health. The Patient Engagement Framework can help boost personal well-being, cut health care costs and increase participation in clinical studies and other activities that benefit the patient and the health and life sciences industry.
"Using reusable frameworks reduces the time to market by 30% to 40%," said Sridhar Mahadevan, CTO, iLink Systems, Inc. "The newest versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, SharePoint & Server 2010, BizTalk Server, System Center Manager, and other Microsoft technologies, bring many features that will make the solutions we develop more powerful and valuable to our clients. We have already built more than 40 reusable frameworks that can be customized to any given industry with minimal effort and time."
iLink's Patient Engagement Framework is an interoperable framework that allows Health and Life Sciences organizations to directly engage members in health-related decision-making, while enabling seamless information exchange among hundreds of different health services and devices. Recognizing this win-win opportunity, Health and Life Sciences executives are seeking the right balance of incentives and online tools to engage consumers in proactively improving their health habits as a means to not only control medical costs but also improve the health of their patients, members or consumers.
Engaging patients/members/consumers fully and effectively requires real-time collaboration capabilities, including the ability to discuss the same information through multiple channels such as smart phones, text messaging, instant messaging, virtual chat agents, email, and web conferencing.
"Personal life style choices are one of the primary drivers of chronic disease and rising healthcare costs. As consumers, we need to think less about 'getting care' from the medical system and more about 'taking care' into our own hands and staying as healthy as possible. The more we engage and become active participants in our own health, the less healthcare services we'll need and the healthier lives we'll lead.” said Anand Gaddum, Healthcare Practice Director, iLink Systems, Inc.
