SAN CARLOS, Calif. — July 21, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, a leading provider of information infrastructure software, today announced that it will host a webinar to explore what state governments can do now to increase public access to healthcare information before new federal guidelines go into effect in 2011. John Dodd, fellow, Enterprise Architecture and Health IT Service Solution Architecture, Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), and Will LaForest, principal consultant, MarkLogic, will present “Optimizing the Continuity of Care Document (CCD) ‘As Is’ to Improve State Healthcare at Lower Costs.” The webinar will explore how breakthrough technologies give governments, practitioners, and providers the ability to improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs with the data they already have. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, July 28, at 11:00 a.m. (PT)/ 2:00 p.m. (ET). To register, click here.

State governments are between the proverbial rock and a hard place when it comes to delivering social service programs like Medicaid. They must increase access to healthcare despite the fiscal challenges they face. Major obstacles to improving healthcare access and outcomes are centered on the limitations of current technology to analyze patient care data without time consuming and expensive reformatting. New technology can unlock these insights and improve healthcare outcomes while lowering patient care costs.

Based on his work advising the Center for Medicaid Systems, the National Institutes of Health, the Center for Disease Control and others, Dodd will discuss the opportunity new technology provides to link governments and providers. LaForest will demonstrate how state governments can use technology to better integrate information from various data sources, perform analysis of the information “as is,” and ensure HIPAA compliance through robust security mechanisms.

John Dodd leads CSC’s Enterprise Architecture and Health IT Service Solution Architecture development practice. He advised the Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) Technical Advisory Group, the “SOA and Health Care” activities with HL7/OMG, and consulted with CMS/Medicaid IT Architecture (MITA), HHS/ACF, USAID, and the American Red Cross on their enterprise architecture efforts.

Will LaForest is a principal consultant for federal at MarkLogic. He works extensively in enterprise engagements across civilian agencies such as the Library of Congress, National Archives, and Department of State. He has 15 years of experience engineering and architecting enterprise level solutions across numerous platforms and architectural idioms.

This webinar will be held on Wednesday, July 28 at 11:00 a.m. (PT)/ 2:00 p.m. (ET). To register, click here.
