Innovative tech firm works with leading industry experts to continue to expand and develop
new information discovery applications for healthcare.
Yorba Linda, CA October 11, 2012 – SpeedTrack Inc. announced today that they have entered into
an agreement with Scripps Health of San Diego to license their California Universal Patient
Information Discovery (CUPID) application for hospital discharges. In addition, Scripps will facilitate
subject matter expertise for the development of a new SpeedTrack application for searching,
analyzing and reporting financial information for licensed California hospitals using data from the
State’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD).
CUPID provides on-line access via an easy-to-use dashboard to a wide range of publicly available healthcare information, including all of California’s public patient discharge information for the most recent 4 years, (Inpatient, Outpatient and ER encounters) which comprise more than 64 million records. Also included is CMS ALOS data and the AMA descriptions for every ICD-9 and CPT code. CUPID enables users to search, analyze, map and download information quickly and easily with virtually no training. It is quickly becoming the critical strategic planning tool for healthcare providers throughout California.
“I have been using the OSHPD data for years to analyze patient discharges for strategic planning and market comparisons. SpeedTrack’s CUPID application provides the ability to explore and discover answers in minutes instead of hours or in some cases days. Additionally, the application offers: access to ER and ASC information (not just inpatient data), and the flexibility to create your own product lines, it’s user-friendly, and it’s usable as soon as the new OSHPD data is available with no waiting or programming required.” Sudha Somasundaram, Senior Analyst, Scripps Health “We are extremely excited to be chosen by Scripps Health as their technology provider to enable better decision making for strategic planning and business development, as well as to work together to develop a new application that delivers better visibility into California hospital financial information,” said SpeedTrack’s CEO Miles Yano.
