We organise and extract meaning from clinical data to support decision making and surveillance
25 years ago, Ocean Health Systems emerged to defragment a disjointed Australian healthcare sector. On a mission to enable integrated care through the controlled sharing of standardized, meaningful, personal health information, the team successfully fostered and commercialised the first openEHR clinical data repository and online clinical information model governance tool, Clinical Knowledge Manager (CKM). Whilst high costs, integrated care barriers and an underpinning need for standardised health records continue to plague the Australian health sector, openEHR continues to shine as the world’s only extensible, standardised health record system – and it’s home-seeded.
The Ocean Health Team deploys solutions with little to no disruption to operations, incorporating legacy infrastructure to create total interconnectivity, including the ability to talk to external applications such as Cerner. Just ask our clients across international and national departments of health, health networks, large hospitals, aged care providers and smaller practices alike.
It took years of research and development, but the hard work of founders Drs Peter Schloeffel and David Rowed, Thomas Beale and Sam Heard resulted in the openEHR two-level modeling approach, which materialised into the openEHR technical specifications and clinical information models. The founders went to great lengths to ensure that confused and confusing arguments over esoteric models of poorly defined terminology and processes were halted and the industry stopped falling into reinvention which was inhibiting progress.
We are a GLOBALLY FOCUSED team offering innovative solutions based on SMART DATA. Built on the work of our founders, we acknowledge their contribution to the innovative design of health data and pay tribute to their contribution by designing products and services that use SMART DATA as the foundation
As a team, we encourage innovation and the development of world-leading solutions. We are a group of smart, creative, health-focused team players working to shift cultural focus from individuals to what we can achieve as a community.
