• Microsoft (Redmond, Washington) has introduced the Microsoft Amalga Unified Intelligence System (UIS) 2009, the next generation of an enterprise data aggregation platform that enables hospitals to unlock patient data stored in a wide range of systems and make it easily accessible to every authorized member of the team inside and beyond the hospital. When authorized by the patient, Amalga UIS 2009 can push patient data generated at the hospital, including test results, medications and discharge summaries, to the patient's HealthVault record via the ASTM Continuity of Care Record industry-standard specification. The patient can then use and share this information, as desired, with other clinicians or caregivers.
