Plano-based NTT Data Services, an international business and IT services provider, has partnered with Palo Alto, Calif.-based Praxify, a healthcare IT consulting company, to improve hospital and health system workflows through enhanced electronic health record technology.
The partnership will integrate Praxify’s Mira technology, a mobile-based tool, in order to reduce charting time for clinicians while also providing them with clinical insights during appointments. It will be offered to the client base of each company.
Praxify’s MIRA is a virtual assistant that speeds up provider workflows and provides clinical intelligence at point of care, according to its website. Launched in February, the mobile application will integrate NTT Data Service’s existing electronic health record to speed up and improve chart reviews for clinicians. Mira allows users to view relevant patient data in real time, helps complete documentation, and organizes documents through context-aware adaptable templates.
Dan Allison, president of global healthcare and life sciences at NTT DATA Services, says the company was “acutely aware of the challenges legacy technology systems can present to advancing patient care,” which led to the partnership with Praxify. “By offering Mira to our clients, we are advancing the promise of healthcare IT to ease clinical workflows and improve decision-making at the point of care,” Allison said.
NTT Data Services’ clients include more than 1,800 hospitals, 43,000 clinicians, 1,000 physician practices, and 50 insurance providers in support of 65 million policy holders.
