Ozmosis Redefines Knowledge Management in Hospitals and Health Systems

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 15, 2011

Ozmosis, Inc. today announced the release of OzmosisESP, the first software platform developed exclusively to meet the enterprise collaboration and knowledge management needs of hospitals and health systems. This groundbreaking solution helps health care organizations enhance productivity and improve clinical outcomes by enabling staff and clinicians to communicate, collaborate, and share clinical content more easily than ever before.

By uniting social collaboration and clinical content management in a single platform, OzmosisESP enables hospitals and health systems to maximize their health IT investments as they strive to achieve meaningful use. “Social business tools are enjoying widespread adoption across the corporate landscape, but the business of healthcare presents unique information management challenges. OzmosisESP is the only social powered software designed to manage clinical content and integrate into a hospital’s existing workflow and enterprise systems,” said Joel Selzer, founder and CEO of Ozmosis.

Based on their experience running Ozmosis.org, one of the world’s leading physician social networks, Ozmosis, Inc. possesses a deep understanding of how health care professionals use social technologies to share knowledge and communicate. As hospitals and health systems continue their digital transformation, they require more effective tools to manage the overwhelming flow of information and streamline communication throughout the enterprise. OzmosisESP enables real-time discussion through its micro-blogging service and aggregates enterprise content (i.e., order sets, outcomes data, journal articles, emails, documents, images, training videos, etc) with the tacit knowledge captured from staff and clinicians, creating an indexed and searchable knowledge repository.

The platform can integrate directly with a hospital’s clinical information systems, making it simple for users to upload, track and view any file and share insights instantly. Once uploaded, clinical content is mapped against a medical taxonomy – automatically linking related clinical content for fast and easy retrieval.

OzmosisESP’s state-of-the-art search tools deliver dynamic facet capabilities, type-ahead search and real-time alerts via email, SMS and activity feeds. Whether users prefer to search for content themselves or rely on their colleagues for answers, OzmosisESP makes it simple to share and access knowledge throughout the enterprise.

OzmosisESP is delivered as Software as a Services (SaaS) and can be tailored to meet an organization’s specific workflow and content needs. It is utilized today by hospitals to improve care team coordination, to streamline the development of clinical content, such as order sets, and to support the deployment and use of electronic medical records (EMR) and computerized physician order entry systems (CPOE).

Ozmosis is co-sponsoring the New Media Meetup at HIMSS 2011 in Orlando on February 22nd. Visit http://ozmosis.com for more information or to schedule a capabilities briefing.
