A revolutionary VAD Center integrated process management solution
OMAHA, Nebraska (May 15, 2012) – OTTR™ Chronic Care Solutions, an Omaha-based clinical process management and informatics company, announced that they have signed an agreement with Hartford Hospital to use the OTTR™ Transplant Care Platform. Hartford Hospital is comprehensively using these OTTR Chronic Care Solutions’ modules and interfaces: Heart, Liver, Kidney, VAD, Financial/Insurance, Lab, ADT, SCM, CLP Lab, Allscripts™, Quest, and Heart Demographics.
Part of the OTTR™ Transplant Care Platform includes the use of the TRA module – Transplant Registry Assistant. Hartford will utilize the TRA module to complete and send transplant recipient registry forms to United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). Furthermore, Hartford will enhance overall productivity by utilizing OTTR Interoperability tools such as external lab integration, transcription, and more.
As a Certified Destination VAD Center, Hartford will use OTTR™Chronic Care Solutions’ newest module OTTRVAD™. The module is designed to facilitate the management of a heart patient from the point of referral for a Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) and continue through post-implant follow-up. OTTRVAD™ also tracks and assists with VAD-related device and equipment management, registry, and compliance reporting.
“This is a very helpful resource that allows us to even better serve our patients,” said Dr. David Hull, Director Emeritus Hartford Hospital Transplant Program.
Hartford is one of the first hospitals in the nation to use OTTRVAD™ to track their heart patients. Hartford will use OTTRVAD™ and the OTTR™ Transplant Care Platform to integrate with their existing EMR.
