NOVO Innovations

Healthcare information exchange continues to challenge the healthcare community for a number of reasons including:

  • Privacy and security
  • Physician adoption
  • Lack of standards
  • Lack of a sustainable business model
  • Large number and variety of disparate systems
  • Need to integrate paper-based systems
  • Focus on data aggregation
  • Data management
  • Patient matching/identification challenges

NOVO Innovations is a platform that exchanges information between healthcare settings regardless of the level of automation each setting employs. There are three basic levels of automation a practice can have. They are:

  • No EMR - The practice has a paper-based medical record. This system replaces faxing and gives practices more control of the information they receive.
  • Document Imaging - The practice has a computerized medical record using scanning or digitized images to create a legal medical record. They can move image files directly into their imaging system.
  • Full EMR - The practice has a full electronic medical record with discreet data elements and interface capabilities to foreign systems.

The NOVO Innovations application can currently offer the following information to PHO members:

  • Result and reports delivery
  • Face sheet rendering

The PHO is implementing and upgrading other applications in order to offer the following support to PHO members:

  • Orders
  • Other reports - Any other document to be exchanged either between Wentworth-Douglass Hospital and the practice or vice versa such as referral and consult reporting, pre-natal reports, H&Ps and medication lists

There is no limit to the number of PHO member practices that can participate in this initiative. For additional information on NOVO Innovations or to implement NOVO Innovations, please contact the Information Systems Department at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital at (603) 740-2104.
