About Us

With over 30 years of combined experience in laboratory and software development and after having implemented dozens of diversified solutions in the private and public sectors, NHRI has firsthand knowledge and understanding of the common challenges that remain in health informatics. This exposure and experience has allowed us to identify key problem factors. There is no denying having real-time information and remote global access is vital in today’s laboratory environment; after many years of studying and evaluating the pressures, we have isolated the following issues and are ready to offer viable and beneficial solutions.

The first problem organizations encounter is the high costs associated with maintaining and managing proprietary legacy systems. Combined with the scarcity of IT resources required for the ongoing support, expenditures can escalate beyond budgeted resources.

Another challenge organizations continue to face is their inability to meet regulatory compliance. With the increasing number of regulations including HIPPRA, Section 501, and 21 CFR Part 1, systems falling short bring negative scrutiny to the organization.

The inability to collaborate within and across organizations and agencies is a growing issue. The ability to exchange and interchange messages is of vital importance. Major public health outbreaks require immediate coordination and cooperation between and across agencies. Data must be collected, recorded, processed, analyzed, and then immediately made accessible. The timely exchange of information is critical to agencies’ ability to make real-time decisions.

Organizations have islands of information they must access for analysis to make quick decisions. The ability to quickly access real-time data can mean the difference between life and death. Often data must be manually compiled when existing systems lack the capability for inter-agency communication. Agencies seeking to build a bridge across disparate systems face expensive custom upgrades due to incompatibility.

Efficient collection and rapid communication of information can ensure that a patient receives the correct treatment; that an initial disease outbreak is quickly recognized and contained, or that world health partners are able to coordinate a response to a pandemic health crisis. The process of making such data readily available is an ongoing challenge that agencies face each day.

NHRI is determined to address these critical needs and we are committed to delivering the highest quality solution. We understand the importance of maximizing your operation’s efficiency while embracing change. NHRI’s cost efficient solution enables organizations to maximize efficiency with a straightforward vehicle for rapid data access exchange.
