Xtract Solutions will join health care leaders from across the globe at Cerner Health Conference 2018
Health care conference will host nearly 14,000 in Kansas City, Oct. 8-11
PORTLAND, Oregon. – Xtract Solutions will attend and exhibit at the
Cerner Health Conference (CHC) 2018, an annual conference on the latest innovations in health
care and IT. Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, will host this year’s event Oct. 8-
11 throughout downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
“The practice of allergy immunotherapy is unlike any other specialty in the hospital setting.”
explains James M. Baker, President & CEO of Xtract Solutions. “Where else do you have
patients coming in for unscheduled visits for a series of injections that are highly variable based
on the patient’s reactions to previous doses, time between injections, and current allergy and
asthma symptoms? The stakes of making an error while giving an injection or mixing a
treatment vial are potentially life threatening for the patient, yet very little has changed in these
practices despite the addition of EHRs over the last few decades. From visiting many hospital
practices over the years, I’ve noticed technological improvements in the space have been nearly
non-existent. Most practices are still documenting records on paper or were forced to develop
templates within the EHR that have significant limitations. Our software finally offers allergy shot
practices a tool to get away from paper and make staff more productive all while interfacing the
documentation and billing with their Electronic Health Record software like Cerner. The
opportunity to share how we do all of this at CHC is something we are really excited about.”
Xtract Solutions will join nearly 14,000 health care industry leaders, practitioners and Cerner
associates from around the world who gather at CHC each year to stay ahead of the curve and
up to date on new and existing technology. Xtract Solutions focuses on bringing the absolute
best technology to the allergy practices of both Board Certified Allergists and Otolaryngologists
and is an exciting addition to the ambulatory space. This year’s theme, “Smarter Care,”
highlights contextual, intelligent experiences and continuous advancement as a smarter
organizational strategy with a focus on proactive engagement and wellness.
With more than 200 educational sessions and 700 expert and industry-leading speakers, CHC
provides organizations insight on ways to engage consumers in their care and gain improved
health outcomes. Xtract Solutions will be meeting with industry leaders and exhibiting it’s suite
of products at booth #635 on the 90,000-square-foot Solutions Gallery floor. Featuring exhibits
from more than 140 supplier organizations, the Solutions Gallery provides experiential learning
with cutting-edge technology and connections with Cerner associates.
Xtract Solutions will be showcasing their allergy software for skin testing, treatment vial
formulation, mixing treatment vials, and giving injections. They will explain how the
solutions are currently helping prevent adverse events for patients, as well as supporting
increased patient satisfaction and productivity of staff for their mutual Cerner clients.
This will help educate industry leaders about a solution they can adopt at their own
hospital to address similar challenges.

About Xtract Solutions
Xtract Solutions is a healthcare software company based in Portland, Oregon that
focuses on allergy immunotherapy. It was founded by Dr. James W. Baker in 2005 with
the goal of bringing the latest technology to his own specialty. Dr. Baker’s 40+ years of
experience in the field along with the input of Xtract Solutions clients over the years has
flipped the typical software development process around. Xtract Solutions has
developed their solutions with the end-users (doctors and nurses) at the table with the
programmers giving their direct input on how they need the software to support their
workflows. This has given Xtract Solutions a unique reputation in the market as a
healthcare software company that reduces the number of steps for the doctors and
nurses, rather than adding steps. The Xtract Solutions slogan is FOR ALLERGY
EXPERTS, BY ALLERGY EXPERTS, and their ultimate goal is to be the standard of care
for allergy immunotherapy in hospital systems across the United States and beyond.
