Basil Baluta co-founded Plexina with a noble aspiration. In 2005, he established a full-service company that offers software, services, and support to meet clinical content management needs for EHR implementation and maintenance. Plexina’s solution solves five key challenges, all of which are very critical for a healthcare system.
- Increase the adoption of the EHR by clinicians within the health system
- Improve standardization/reduction of variance in care
- Increase the use of evidence-based medicine
- Reduce in EHR activation and on-going maintenance costs
- Improve the quality of patient care
In 2013, Plexina found Nascenia team through a reference. The collaboration and understanding between the two went very well. Nascenia could understand that they would not only have a vast scope of work but could contribute to human health through this solution. Since March 2013, Nascenia has been working on different products of Plexina that are built on RoR, Java, and Python. Type of work includes database design and solution — improvement (customization), support, added new features, deployment, R&D project (new design & development). This service helps its clients to manage clinical content and drastically save time and money. Plexina’s allocations include COACH, CHIEF, AMDIS, HIMSS, AMIA, AHIMA, ANHIX, and HIMSS Canada. Today, the solutions are installed and used by 3 clinics in Canada.
Plexina is a web application built with Ruby on Rails, Java, Python and developed by Nascenia
For the last 10 years, Plexina spread its operations across Canada and the US, partnering with global evidence-based content providers, systems integrators, Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendors, and health systems to accelerate the development and deployment of the highest quality standardized, guiding, electronically actionable Clinical Decision Support (CDS) tools.
Nascenia has learned a lot from this collaboration. It has learned to build tools that understand and emulates order sets, reviews best practices and eliminate the need for unreliable manual testing. The direct experience enables Nascenia to develop better solutions that reduce the redundancy in the healthcare system and take better care of people.
