CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO , July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that Servicio Extremeno de Salud (SES), a provider of public healthcare services to the one million inhabitants of the Extremadura region of Spain , has selected Autonomy's Meaning-based Computing solution to quickly and accurately provide alerts on patient prescription conflicts as part of a national project, entitled "JARA", to modernise Spanish healthcare.
The new system powered by Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), will automatically ingest all of the patients' information, including age, allergies, previous illnesses, etc, so that when doctors prescribe medication, the pharmacists can use the system to assess whether there will be any complications with the prescription. This eliminates the costs and time associated with manually examining each patient's potential prescription conflicts. With Autonomy, SES aims to provide a more efficient and improved regional healthcare system.
"We are always looking for new ways to improve our patient care and having the right technology is very important," commented Francisco Luis Caceres , Coordinator of SES "JARA" project. "Autonomy's innovative software will help eliminate the potential risks within the prescription process by proactively sending alerts to medical staff without the need to perform manual searches or checks. This will help our doctors and pharmacists to work more efficiently."
"We are delighted to deliver innovative technology to benefit the healthcare industry," said Mike Lynch , CEO of Autonomy. "It is an honor to know that our technology will be used to improve the efficiency of healthcare professionals and enable a higher level of medical care."
