AOD Partners with Kno2TM

Secure connectivity with long-term care enhances interoperability
across the care continuum

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AOD
Software
, delivering the industry’s leading integrated software
solution to senior care providers, today announced its partnership with
Inofile, makers of Kno2, the award-winning clinical document exchange
platform. The integration of AOD’s EHR
with Kno2
eliminates the need for senior care organizations to rely on paper for
clinical document exchange, empowering the triple aim of improved
outcomes, increased care quality and lower health care costs.

“Secure interoperability across the care continuum plays an integral
role in quality improvement and improved outcomes,” said Aric Agmon,
President and CEO of AOD Software. “We are thrilled to include Kno2 in
our EHR to connect senior care organizations with key stakeholders,
including hospitals and physician practices, to transform
resident-centric care and look ahead toward a collaborative healthcare
system.”

According
to the ONC
, while hospital exchange activity has grown significantly
over the years, exchange of data during transitions is limited for
hospitals and post-acute care providers. The partnership with Inofile
will connect senior care organizations with hospitals and other care
providers in their area using enterprise systems such as Epic, Cerner,
McKesson, Greenway and Allscripts. Kno2 provides AOD clients a single,
secure point for exchange of resident data through AOD’s EHR. Using Kno2
and DIRECT messaging standards decreases dependence on paper and fax,
improving transitions of care, compliance, patient safety and workflow
efficiencies.

“The combination of AOD and Kno2 delivers instant interoperability
across the care continuum. With AOD integrating to Kno2, a facility
using AOD’s EHR can be fully interoperable in 24 hours,” said Jon
Elwell, CEO of Inofile. “We read every day about obstacles to
interoperability between hospitals and post-acute care settings; Kno2
removes those barriers, making interoperability available to everyone
right now, regardless of their overall technology adoption or budget
constraints.”

“We’re very excited about our relationship with AOD – it’s the latest
achievement in a long line of innovation that takes DIRECT far beyond
simple direct messaging and broadens our ability to drive
interoperability and efficiency, producing a positive impact on
healthcare everywhere and for everyone,” continued Elwell.

With DIRECT continuing to expand, Kno2 has the ability to electronically
send and receive all clinical documents from any source through a single
platform, linking all patient care environments through structured,
standardized document formats. Kno2 easily adapts in all healthcare
environments including those with limited technology funds or outdated,
uneasily integrated equipment and enables a secure, structured,
interoperable exchange of patient information.
