Initially developed for the renal care community in British Columbia, PROMIS uses real-time data to improve the quality of care for chronic disease patients. Since 2006, PROMIS has grown an average of 37% annually.
As a single data repository, PROMIS gives health professionals a 360 degree view of the patient’s record, incorporating clinical, administrative, lab, pharmacy and scheduling options with advanced clinical and program management analytics.
Because it is a unified data source, PROMIS supports direct patient care, program management, facility management and research related to chronic disease management through a single, easy to use interface. This means better care for chronic disease patients, continuous quality improvement, and a better continuum of care overall.
PROMIS’ rich features include BI reporting capabilities, care program management, support for outcomes-based planning and complete inter-operability with industry standards like HL7 2.x and 3.x. And, PROMIS is a web-based thin client, providing easy access for slow and on-demand networks.
