NantHealth Unveils Industry's First Open, Intelligent Clinical Operating System (cOS) at HIMSS14

Company Launched With $1 Billion Investment by Pharmaceutical Pioneer Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD Combines Cutting-Edge Science, Technology and Connectivity as Never Before

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - From the floor of the HIMSS14 Conference and Exhibition, NantHealth, a transformational healthcare IT company converging science and technology through a single integrated clinical platform, today unveiled the NantHealth Clinical Operating System (cOS™) for value-based care. cOS is the first intelligent cloud-based platform integrating clinical, financial, operational and environmental data to improve quality, lower costs, and drive value for accountable care organizations, health systems, hospitals, physicians and patients. 

Consolidation of several established healthcare IT organizations including iSirona, Net.Orange, Qi Imaging, and Eviti, NantHealth provides a comprehensive IT solution for the many facets of healthcare ranging from diagnostics to delivery. cOS lays the foundation for NantHealth's overall offering.

"NantHealth's mission is to solve the chief problem plaguing our healthcare system, which is the lack of truly coordinated care connecting patients and their providers with actionable knowledge in time of need, at the point of care," said Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, NantHealth's founder and the pioneer of pharmaceutical treatments for both diabetes and cancer. "While many companies have promised true interoperability and free exchange of clinical data, so far they have not delivered and as a result healthcare, our most important industry, is fragmented and lags all other industries. cOS is the first viable, proven platform for making complex information as someone's genomic profile as simple as their heart rate and blood pressure. This information is easy to move and share so it follows the patient wherever they go."

An open, standards-based technology platform, cOS integrates data from existing legacy systems, such as electronic health records (EHR) from multiple platforms, health information exchanges (HIE) and claims, in real-time to enable hospitals, physician practices, employers and payers to work together and thrive in the evolving value-driven marketplace. When cOS capabilities are combined with NantHealth's other solutions -- cancer care coordination, transition management, and in-home connectivity -- the company's platform empowers physicians and caregivers to make informed decisions in seconds, matching the patient to the right treatment and ultimately saving lives.

360-degree view of the patient
Built for the era of value-based care, cOS enables health systems to be truly patient-centric by connecting and tracking information from disparate IT systems. The platform's suite of applications provide predictive analytics, care coordination workflows and specific portals of view for all members in the care continuum including physicians and their staff, hospital administrators, community care providers, disease and wellness management coaches, health plan administrators, patients and their caregivers.

Unique features of NantHealth's cOS include:

Proactive Near Real-Time Decision Support. cOs is the first operating system of its kind in healthcare to be based on supply chain principles and grid service-oriented architecture integrating the medical knowledge base, delivery system and payment system. The cOS architecture leverages the principles of big data, enterprise data warehouse, and near real time intelligent analytics to enable proactive decision support as opposed to retrospective business reviews.

Continuous Learning Center Across Populations: cOS can facilitate a network of physician practices, hospitals and/or payers to implement a virtual care coordination model across disparate populations, without requiring them to change their clinical, operational and financial IT systems. cOS continually stratifies the population using predictive and empirical algorithms to identify high-risk patients, enroll them in personalized care plans, track outcomes and route near real-time notifications to each care team member to indicate a goal violation or gap in care.

Integration with Existing Systems: cOS synchronizes information from existing IT systems including EHR, lab and pathology systems, imaging systems (PACS, RIS), pharmacy, scheduling and practice management systems, and medical devices (BP gauges, glucometers, weight scales etc.).

NantHealth cOS is the centerpiece of a $1 billion investment by Dr. Soon-Shiong, who has brought together some of the most innovative companies and solutions in healthcare IT with the goal of providing the right care, at the right time, in the right place and at the lowest cost. Dr. Soon-Shiong is the founder of two multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies, American Pharma Partners (APP) and Abraxis Bioscience (ABII). He has pioneered treatments for both diabetes and cancer, published more than 100 scientific papers, and has received 98 U.S. and worldwide patents on groundbreaking discoveries.

NantHealth cOS will be on display along with NantHealth's full line of transformational healthcare solutions at HIMSS14, today through February 27, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. NANTHEALTH is located at booth #2783.
