Konica Minolta announced it has been selected to exhibit Connected Care, a system to streamline manual processes related to patient intake, care coordination and referral and order management at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange. Vizient, Inc, the nation’s largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement company, will hold the Exchange on October 3 in Grapevine, Texas.
The annual Innovative Technology Exchange offers selected suppliers the unique opportunity to demonstrate their product or service to supply chain and clinical leaders from Vizient’s member hospitals and subject matter experts who serve on their supply councils. Each product or service will showcase how it improves clinical outcomes, enhances safety or drives incremental improvements to healthcare delivery or business models.
The Connected Care solution automatically converts unstructured data to structured, automates manual tasks in daily workflows, generates EHR records and reduces administrative burdens for healthcare organizations to improve revenue and expedite care.
“Konica Minolta continually strives to address the challenges faced by healthcare providers in regard to data management and exchange by introducing advanced digital transformation initiatives,” said Danielle Morrison, national practice manager, Healthcare IT Services, Konica Minolta. “Our new, cloud-based healthcare platform is designed to buy back productive time for care providers and administrative staff with a comprehensive solution that harmonizes disconnected systems, adapts to future needs and creates a positive patient experience.”
“Suppliers apply to attend the Exchange hoping their product will be awarded an Innovative Technology contract, which signals healthcare providers to their product’s unique qualities,” said Kelly Flaharty, senior director of Contract Services, Vizient. “The selection process for suppliers who exhibit at the Exchange is rigorous, and this technology has earned its coveted invitation to the event.”
The annual Innovative Technology Exchange is part of Vizient’s Innovative Technology Program that includes product review of supplier-submitted technologies by member-led councils and task forces. Since 2003, Vizient has reviewed more than 1,600 product submissions as part of its Innovative Technology Program.
