LAS VEGAS – Analytics vendor ExtraHop has announced a new healthcare analytics bundle that supports clinical operations and patient care. The company also announced support for the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine protocol, enabling real-time stream analysis of data transmitted by medical imaging devices.

ExtraHop is demonstrating the healthcare analytics bundle at HIMSS16 at its exhibit hall booth (#12350), as well as in the ExtraHop kiosks in the Clinical and Business Insights Pavilion (#14079) and the Citrix Ready Partner Pavilion (#10528).

The new healthcare analytics bundle, developed with a select group of ExtraHop clients, delivers stream analytics for healthcare designed to unlock insights into the relationship between IT performance and clinical workflows, the vendor said. The bundle leverages the ExtraHop platform to parse, correlate and analyze all healthcare data flowing over a network to derive meaningful insights from the numerous devices and systems on which hospitals run, the vendor said.

The analytics bundle extracts details from the HL7 protocol, which is used to exchange patient and billing data between systems, as well as the DICOM and TelNet protocols, which are commonly used in clinical equipment. With this correlated real-time visibility, both IT and operations teams can work to optimize resources, streamline processes and deliver better patient care, the vendor said.

“Nearly every aspect of healthcare operations touches a network in one way or another, whether it’s electronic health records, orders for prescriptions or diagnostic testing, or medical devices like drug pumps and monitoring equipment,” said Erik Giesa, senior vice president of marketing at ExtraHop. “The new healthcare analytics bundle is a conduit for turning all of that data flowing over the network into actionable, real-time information. Equipped with this insight, IT can be a change agent for clinical operations, and in turn, directly and positively influence patient care.”
