Kryptiq to Demonstrate Technologies for Connecting Healthcare at HIMSS

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Kryptiq Corp. will demonstrate the ability to make the connected healthcare system and Continuity of Care Record (CCR) initiative a reality today at the 2004 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference. Taking place Feb. 23-26 in Orlando, Kryptiq will be unveiling new products and participating in the first combined HL7/IHE Interoperability demonstration during the show. The activities throughout HIMSS will showcase Kryptiq's ability to securely interface with existing healthcare information systems to enable complete communication from the provider to the patients to the payers, and improve overall productivity in the daily workflow of healthcare organizations.

"The need for secure, accessible technology solutions in the healthcare market that enable physicians and payers to improve quality of care and increase productivity in daily operations is critical," said Jim Klein, vice president and research director at Gartner Group. "This goal will require interoperable solutions that utilize pervasive technology such as e-mail to integrate existing systems, such as electronic medical records, and to streamline the way people in different organizations work together by allowing information to be shared easily wherever it is needed by processes spanning multiple organizations. Vendors that address this challenge will play a key role in the market and will help drive adoption of electronic health information systems by dramatically increasing the collaborative functions of such systems across the healthcare value chain."

Throughout HIMSS, Kryptiq will be unveiling the following new products and initiatives:

New Kryptiq products:

-- CareCatalyst(TM) is the first secure and interoperable physician office portal designed specifically to integrate with back-end clinical systems, such as G.E.'s Centricity(R) Physician Office EMR. CareCatalyst streamlines patient/clinic communications and give patients online access to personal health information, as well as 24-hour access to online services, including appointment scheduling, eVisits, bill payment, referral requests, and prescription renewals. The Web-based solution is aimed at strengthening physician-patient communication and optimizing the provider's workflow by helping physicians improve the portability of patient records, reduce clinic dependency on the phone, increase staff efficiency, improve speed and delivery of care to patients.

-- Guardian Contract Manager(TM) is the only modular contract management solution designed for managing the entire healthcare contract life-cycle. Guardian allows healthcare insurance companies to increase the visibility and accountability of corporate contracts by standardizing contractual language, clauses, terms, and fee schedules in a universal repository.
