Interlinked care - Idana integrates with medical information systems


Dear Companists,

The days where all administrative tasks were laboriously done by hand are mostly in the past. Electronic health records are the control center of the modern doctor’s office: They contain the patient records, allow billing, manage correspondence, and serve as an archive for documents, graphical material, laboratory data – and, most recently, the medical history data collected through Idana.   

Last week, our team of developers reached another milestone and integrated a GDT interface that enables the exchange with current electronic health records. In this update, we will explain what a GDT interface is and how Idana uses it to make routines in doctor’s offices more efficient.


The GDT interface – the link between electronic health records and medical devices

The abbreviation GDT stands for “Gerätedatentransfer” (device data transfer), which is what its respective interface is intended to facilitate: The interface commissioned by the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians and developed by the Quality Ring Medical Software is the basis for the exchange between the central practitioner's software and other medical applications, from measuring instruments to external software such as Idana.

The idea behind it is very simple and is based on a common language between the different devices and programs. The dictionary for this lingua franca is a common directory containing all the different data and information.


Connected Health Care


But what happens when the physician wants to transfer the anamnesis data gathered by Idana to the electronic health record? The practitioner's software writes up the patients’ data as a temporary GDT file. Idana reads the data and uses it for evaluation, the results of which are sent to the software via another temporary file.

The advantages are obvious: the once cumbersome transmission of data from one file to the next can now be done with a simple mouse click. The automated exchange simplifies not only administrative and documentation processes, it also eliminates potential errors, such as switching letters in patients’ names or entering the wrong measurement – mostly harmless errors, however which may also affect the patient's health under certain circumstances.


Idana becomes more attractive – thanks to the GDT interface

The added value that Idana’s digital anamnesis and automated documentation offers is fully utilized through the GDT interface. Since the GDT exchange format is not dependent on a system, Idana can now be integrated with most electronic health records. Moreover, Idana is becoming more attractive for the international market, as GDT is used globally to integrate medical devices.


Idana’s tech heros – our team of developers

Reaching this milestone so quickly was only possible thanks to our team of developers. Supported by Stefan Berea, our technical manager Jérôme Meinke realized the implementation of the GDT interface in record time. This proves that the two are a strong team – which is why we are happy that we are now able to employ Stefan, who has worked on Idana since July 2016, on a full time basis, thanks to your investment dear Companists.

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
