There is high demand in the market for a physician portal with the same features and functionality Orion Health's Concerto, but that could be installed in less time
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 25, 2008
Orion Health, a leading provider of clinical workflow and integration technology for the healthcare sector, today announced Concerto Rapid Deployment™ edition designed for hospitals needing a full-scale physician portal within a short implementation timeframe.
Concerto Rapid Deployment™ edition is a cost-effective, quick to install and easy to use physician portal, offering the ability to add additional functions and searches over time without compromising on the mission-critical needs of the hospital system.
The Rapid Deployment edition comes pre-configured with the options and features most valued by physicians and a standard set of interfaces that will allow an organization to deliver many of the benefits of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) for a small percentage of the effort typically required.
"The consequences of not investing in an enterprise portal will make the care delivery organization less competitive, affect the patient's view of its convenience and accessibility and limit its readiness to participate in health information exchange with providers and payers," said Barry Runyon, research director for Gartner Inc.'s healthcare practice.
Orion Health's Concerto™ Medical Applications Portal is a Web-based physician portal delivering a unified patient view across all applications, providing one-click access to the same patient's information from any system. By providing a centrally controlled sign-on to multiple health information systems and data sources across an enterprise or health community, Concerto eliminates the need for clinicians to manage multiple passwords.
"There is high demand in the market for a physician portal with the same features and functionality Orion Health's Concerto, but that could be installed in less time," said Paul Viskovich, president, Orion Health, North American Operations.
"The newest member of the Concerto product suite allows hospitals and staff to continue to receive the highest quality product at a quicker point of entry."
Integrating healthcare systems throughout the world since 1993, Orion Health contributes to integration and clinical workflow projects across the globe for clients including Abbott Laboratories, New York State Department of Health, Capital Health, New South Wales Health, and the New Zealand Ministry of Health.
