Occam’s powerful EMPI solution provides best-in-class ability to accurately identify patients and share clinical data across the entire patient journey, thus contributing to the best possible care and outcome for the patient, first responders and hospital personnel.
“Incorporation of this technology into the ESO Suite will revolutionize clinical data integration for EMS, hospitals, telemedicine providers – anyone with whom EMS shares information,” said Eric Beck, President of ESO. “The great work by the Occam team to build this powerful EMPI will make it even easier for ESO to provide a more complete patient picture across the healthcare continuum. Ultimately, this will help our customers – from EMS to hospitals – break down data silos and unlock insights that improve outcomes.”
Founded in 2006, Occam is the premier provider of software and algorithms designed to help healthcare organizations track and update patient information from disparate sources. Occam’s EMPI platform ensures accurate, consistent, and up-to-date information for better patient care.
