VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 13, 2023 /CNW/ – WELL Health Technologies Corp. (TSX: WELL) (OTCQX: WHTCF) (“WELL” or the “Company“), a company focused on positively impacting health outcomes by leveraging technology to empower healthcare providers and their patients globally, is pleased to announce it has partnered with ORX Surgical (“ORX“), Tali AI (“Tali“), and Simon Fraser University (“SFU“) to transform healthcare data into actionable insights through a Digital Technology Supercluster (“DTS“) project called Health Compass.
There has historically been large amounts of data locked in outdated and inefficient electronic medical records (“EMR“) that have proven to be a major cause of burnout for physicians. Sorting through massive amounts of data takes a physician’s time away from delivering care to their patients. Health Compass applies artificial intelligence to existing EMRs, helping physicians find the insights they need, and make critical decisions faster for their patients. Health Compass offers a natural voice interface that recognizes physicians’ voices to streamline clinical documentation and queries for patients, applies predictive analytics to help flag high-need patients, and automates the patient journey in primary care and specialty care to connect patients with life changing care quickly.
WELL and its internal several subsidiaries participating in the project (AwareMD, OSCAR Pro, Intrahealth, Ocean, Doctorcare, apps.health) have secured $3M in co-investment funding from DTS to support WELL’s platform which will be used to pilot the Health Compass project. More specifically, the project will leverage and build upon WELL’s open and FHIR-based apps.health ecosystem to seamlessly integrate the Health Compass capabilities into the EMR. The funding will also be used enhance the ability for digital health innovations to interoperate with EMRs and make it easier for providers to augment their EMR with the latest innovations
