Software development platform to increase productivity and
mitigate security risk

Healthcare Information Systems For 21st century healthcare information systems, interoperability is a critical factor. Without a new infrastructure for clinical standardization, it is impossible for accurate electronic health records containing vital patient information to be exchanged — along with other important data and communications shared through software systems with multiple users.

Only about 8% of the nations 5000 hospitals and 17% of its 800000 physicians currently use the electronic health record (EHR) systems envisioned for the whole nationCollabNet is actively helping to create standardization solutions that promote interoperability for both healthcare enterprises and global developer communities. Two such communities, the International Health Terminology Standards Development Organization (IHTSDO) and Open Health Tools (OHT) both use CollabNet's cloud-based Agile ALM development platform to speed their work. And, leading healthcare enterprises like Kaiser Permanente are partnering with CollabNet to create a more productive, centralized, and Agile environment for their globally distributed teams of developers.

Industry Challenges

The mandate for inter-
operability requires active coordination of development teams both within and outside of the enterprise. Sharing of system assets and on-boarding new teams must be balanced with the requirement for security and privacy.

Impact

The productivity of development teams is hampered by an inability to work closely with counterparts within and outside of the organization and further compounded by security risks.

Solution

Though governed collaboration and shared innovation provided by CollabNet's secure community architecture software development platform, healthcare standardization and interoperability are delivered.
