Extending its association with Carmel, IN-based software
solutions provider - Clinical Architecture,
Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc.
) contracted to integrate the former's comprehensive terminology
management system, Symedical, with its dbMotion interoperability
platform to streamline vocabulary mapping.
By incorporating Symedical, Allscripts intends to provide its
clients with efficient and enhanced mapping tools and improved
vocabulary distribution. This would allow the clients to achieve
health information exchange and connectivity goals in a faster
manner, helping them to improve care and outcomes.
Clinical Architecture's Symedical is an integrated knowledge
management system and an end-to-end terminology framework that
enables a healthcare solution provider to cope with the complexity
of clinical terminologies.
Back in Aug 2012, Allscripts first incorporated Symedical into its
workflow to address the clinical technology needs of its entire
product suite. Symedical is currently used by Allscripts for
terminology management, content integration and to distribute and
provide user-friendly search at the point of care.
Per the current arrangement, Allscripts staff uses Symedical to
centrally load and update terminologies which are then published to
each discrete install using the product's automated content
distribution features. When an Allscripts end user searches for
content that is managed with Symedical, the search renders highly
relevant weighted results.
The expanded use of Symedical with Allscripts dbmotion will
leverage its interoperability features for code set mapping. This
will include sophisticated matching algorithms, optimized workflow
and the ability to promote consistency by using prior mapping
selections to inform current decision processes.

diverse care settings and health information technology systems
into a single patient record and provider workflow, at the point of
care. Such synchronized information across the enterprise enables
providers to easily access and manage information within familiar
workflows, facilitate better care and disease management and move a
step closer toward new payment models.
