Syndesis™ is a cloud based Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) service connecting healthcare providers, diagnostic centers, hospitals, pharmacies and patients. Our mission is to provide physicians with dynamic patient information enabling them to use a comprehensive medical record to improve patient care and maximize profitability. Syndesis™ is driven by a spirited passion to both enhance the quality of healthcare and stabilize the escalating costs of healthcare delivery in the United States.
Our cloud based health information platform enables small to mid-sized medical groups1to improve overall operations. Syndesis™ solutions increase efficiency and reduce cost by providing three core services: (1) Health Information Exchange (HIE), (2) data repository, and (3) insurance eligibility verification and pre-authorization.
Health Information Exchange (HIE) is the only reliable means by which patient information can be shared among disparate electronic medical record (EMR) and other health information systems. However, most HIEs are hospital focused and too expensive for small to mid-sized medical groups to afford. This lack of broad physician participation in HIE results in a failure to capture critical health information essential for continuity of healthcare. Additionally, existing HIEs do not support patient participation and therefore exclude another source of essential information. Finally, many of the existing HIEs have proven to be unable to continue operations without ongoing financial support from government programs.
