Meet the Elimu Informatics Leadership Team at HIMSS21 in Las Vegas this August
Meet with Jim Shalaby, Aziz Boxwala and Tonya Hongsermeier at HIMSS21
The Elimu Informatics leadership team will be attending HIMSS21. Please contact us to arrange a meeting and learn about how our platform, products and services can help you extend and enhance the capabilities of your clinical systems.
Join our Opioid App presentation at AMIA’s Virtual Syposium
Are you trying to minimize opioid utilization for your surgery patients? Learn about the ways Baystate Health has deployed our Post-op Opioid Monitoring app during Aziz Boxwala’s presentation at AMIA’s annual symposium (held virtually this year). Aziz will be presenting with several other finalists in this HL7 FHIR App Competition. This is a great way to learn about new, exciting solutions available in your EHR! The presentation will held from 12:00 – 1:30 PM ET on Tuesday, November 17th. Click the link below to learn more.
Elimu to present on Genomics at FHIR Dev Days
Don’t miss Elimu founder, Aziz Boxwala’s, session at FHIR Dev Days on June 15th at 3:30pm Central. This session will illustrate the use of multiple FHIR standards in creating a complex clinical decision-support (CDS) app based on whole genome sequence data. If you’ve ever wondered, “Where do I store large genome files and how can I leverage my EHR data for genomics decision support?” then this is the session for you. We will describe the advantages of using FHIR standards, the gaps in the standards, and the challenges for app developers in applying complex logic to large datatypes such as genomic sequence data.
Elimu releases automated SOFA calculator
As hospital resources become constrained due to COVID-19 related patient surges, having a data driven view of multi organ failure due to sepsis, and other causes, is a necessity. The Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) embeds in your EHR, pulls all of the data needed for the calculation, and writes the score back to the EHR chart.
Meet up with us at HIMSS 2020 in Orlando!
The Elimu team will be at HIMSS 2020 in sunny Orlando, Florida. If you’d like to discuss any of our SMART on FHIR products, Consulting Services, see a product demo, or just say hello, we’d love to see you!
November HL7 FHIR & Genomics Newsletter: Access & Security in Genome Analysis
Human genome data can be analyzed to derive immense healthcare benefits, and equally misused with disastrous consequences for victims of its theft. While we want to analyze large quantities of genetic data to maximize our knowledge, we need to keep this data completely secure. A new framework for genomic data analysis using brand-new mathematical techniques for data encryption gives both freedom and security…
Join us at the Intersystems Global Summit 2019
We’re honored to be part of the Intersystems Global Summit’s inaugural Start-up Showcase. We’ll be at a booth on the third floor (Berkeley Room) of the Boston Marriott Copley Place on Sept 23rd and 24th, from 1pm – 5pm. Stop by to get a demo of Sapphire or let us know you’re coming via the link below.
September HL7 FHIR & Genomics Newsletter: Precision Medicine on FHIR?
While current science is far from providing a uniform cure for cancer, we believe that the reasons for the lack of benefit are many-fold, and that we can do better, and that HL7 FHIR, coupled with clinical decision support (CDS) can help.
How do we overcome the barriers to precision oncology? We are far far far from understanding the complex biology of cancer. Available targeted treatment options are impressive achievements, but are woefully limited. FHIR won’t help here – rather, the incremental advancement of science will push forward, thanks to the ongoing contributions of countless basic science and clinical researchers…
Join Us at the August San Diego FHIR Meetup!
Join us for an evening of FHIR talk and innovation at the San Diego FHIR Meetup on August 20th at 5pm. Elimu is co-hosting this event with our friends at Health Samurai. Our very own, Aziz Boxwala, will be giving a talk. Click the link below for the agenda and other event details.
The July HL7 FHIR & Genomics Newsletter is here!
So we’ve been writing a lot about the importance of using genomic data in Clinical Decision Support (CDS). We’ve also written about the importance of Genomic Archiving and Communication Systems (GACS) to store the petabytes upon petabytes of data that will inevitably arise from genomic sequencing. What we haven’t touched on yet is a rather uncomfortable truth – a good portion of the identified genomic variants that come back from genetic tests can actually be false positives according to some reports . How do we know which variants are safe to use in CDS and which ones to ignore?
