Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation Building Breakthrough Health Care Technology
A REVOLUTIONARY ELECTRONIC INTEGRATION platform will soon transform health care delivery, serving as a model for the state and the country. The Caruth Foundation at Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT) has announced a grant of up to $12 million to Parkland Foundation, on behalf of Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation (PCCI) and Parkland Health & Hospital System, to enable PCCI to build the Dallas Information Exchange Portal (IEP).
“The Dallas Information Exchange Portal is an exciting advancement for health care and social service organizations,” said Brent Christopher, president and CEO of CFT. “The Caruth Foundation at CFT is dedicated to supporting game-changing innovation, and we are proud to be part of this historic development.”
The Dallas IEP will help solve a persistent problem—fragmented patient information that inhibits delivery of care. Critical knowledge is often lost as vulnerable patients move between medical and social service organizations. The results can be devastating, from expensive hospital re-admissions to early mortality. The Dallas IEP will use artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to interpret medical and critical social data to predict patients’ risks of adverse health events and help providers deliver the best care to their patients. The results of such a breakthrough will be felt by the entire community.
“Our belief is that the Dallas IEP represents a radical technological vision for cross-sector, Metroplex-wide patient care,” said Dr. Ruben Amarasingham, president and CEO of PCCI. “We are incredibly humbled to receive this grant.”
