Krames StayWell Releases new Patient-Focused Health IT Solution Driven by 3M Terminology Content

YARDLEY, Pa.–()–Krames
, the nation’s leading health care communication and
engagement company, has released a new service designed to ensure health
care organizations can fulfill the patient and family engagement pillars
of meaningful use. With the release of its new Infobutton
, Krames StayWell is making it easier for a healthcare
organization to use their certified EHR to identify patient education
resources (a current Stage 1 requirement) and provide those resources to
the patient through that EHR (a Stage 2 requirement removes the “if
appropriate” wording) utilizing the Infobutton Standard (a Stage 2 EHR
Certification Criterion). Additionally, the Krames StayWell Infobutton
Solution via a patient portal will help an organization to make the
suggested patient education information available within 36 hours after
a discharge for viewing, downloading, or transmitting (another Stage 2

The Infobutton solution uses the 3M
Healthcare Data Dictionary (3M HDD)
from 3M Health Information
Systems to encode and cross-reference Krames StayWell’s award-winning
patient education content with clinical terminologies such as SNOMED,
LOINC, and RxNORM, and major code sets including ICD-10-CM and
ICD-10-PCS. The 3M HDD is a controlled medical vocabulary server that
translates and integrates data from diverse systems into a common
language. It maps medical terms to give data context and meaning, and is
used to standardize data to make it interoperable and computable.

“The Infobutton
has been around for a while,” explained Stephanie Manning,
Vice President, Digital Content for Krames StayWell. “What we’ve done by
working with 3M is made it possible for healthcare organizations to
leverage a wide range of code sets and any health IT system to trigger
our content. Now healthcare facilities can capitalize on their IT
investment to intelligently deliver Krames StayWell’s patient education
content which has been proven to engage patients, drive behavior change,
and deliver better outcomes while improving patient satisfaction and
quality of care.”

Dr. Lee Min Lau, Chief Medical Informaticist for 3M Health Information
Systems noted, “The 3M Healthcare Data Dictionary (HDD) provides Krames
StayWell the ability to organize its patient education content to
leverage standard terminologies. We’re excited to work with Krames
StayWell to make its patient education content easily accessible and
understandable across different health information systems.”
