INOVA’s Allergy Integration Initative

INOVA Health System has engaged Audacious Inquiry to perform project management, and software systems development to enable secure and reliable integration between disparate clinical systems. The objective of the INOVA allergy integration initiative is to create a “source of truth” allergy list within Inova’s in-patient medical record system (GE Centricity Enterprise), and to effectively share this information with INOVA’s Emergency Department system – PICIS.

The completion of this project will bring about the seamless transmission of allergy information between the INOVA in-patient and Emergency Department health information systems. As a result, there will be reduced duplicate patient questioning and provider data entry, and increased patient safety and quality due to the availability of critical information at the point of care.
