Elsevier to Market Innovative Patient Data Collection Platform from Tonic Health

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, September 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier Clinical Solutions, in collaboration with Tonic, will help further develop the platform with its high quality medical content

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has agreed exclusively to market and help further develop Tonic Health's simple, fun and intuitive patient data collection platform.

Using its deep experience serving the healthcare provider market, Elsevier will employ its sales force to offer Tonic's highly engaging, tablet- and web-based, EHR-integrated data collection platform for patients. The solution includes a powerful, easy-to-use survey builder that allows providers to create, manage and edit all surveys, forms and questionnaires across their enterprise. Healthcare providers use these fully customizable tools to analyze and act upon the results in real time.

"As we sought to collaborate with an experienced player in the healthcare market, we found that Elsevier has the right combination of reach, reputation and content that will help Tonic thrive," said Sterling Lanier, CEO and co-founder of Tonic Health. "We're looking forward to further developing our platform with Elsevier and bringing Tonic to more and more hospitals and health systems."

Used by many leading health systems such as Partners HealthCare, New York-Presbyterian and UCLA Health, Tonic's intuitive user interface and broad functionality engages patients and optimizes patient data collection across in- and out-patient settings and for an array of provider needs, including patient intake, real-time patient screening and risk assessments, patient satisfaction, patient education and patient-reported outcomes. As U.S. health systems become increasingly accountable for patient outcomes beyond the hospital setting, the need for tools that enable providers to capture accurate patient information is critical. Tonic enables providers to collect more accurate information from patients and use it to make better care decisions that improve outcomes and reduce costs.

"We are very excited about our collaboration with Tonic because it will help our customers engage directly with patients and make collecting important data less of a chore for patients," said Jay Katzen, President, Elsevier Clinical Solutions. "Tonic will help us broaden and deepen our relationships with the hospitals and health systems we currently serve through its revolutionary approach to user experience that will foster and enhance relationships with patients."

Tonic's patient data collection platform complements the Elsevier Clinical Solutions suite, particularly its patient engagement solutions, including ExitCare. The combination of Tonic and ExitCare ensure that providers and patients have the information they need to deliver and manage patient health both in and outside the hospital. The Elsevier Clinical Solutions suite also includes a portfolio of solutions for workflow and decision support, clinical reference and drug reference, and performance management.

Tonic was founded collaboratively by a consumer marketing expert and a technologist with deep experience in user interface design, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), mobile and Web applications to solve the difficult challenge of gathering accurate and actionable patient-reported data. The result was the pairing of a simple, intuitive and entertaining interface with robust real-time analytics and CRM capabilities. Simply put, patients provide better, more meaningful information because the Tonic solution is easy and fun to use. This allows providers to gather more and more accurate data from patients with the goal of providing better, more personalized care at a lower cost.

Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud?

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
