East Walpole, MA (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
MResult Healthcare and PatientOS announced today a new cost-effective solution for implementing Electronic Medical Records. Based on the open source healthcare information system PatientOS EMR and MResult Healthcare's Design, Build Validate methodology, this approach will allow healthcare institutions to implement tailored Electronic Medical Record systems for a fraction of the cost of traditional EMR systems.
"Most companies look at Electronic Medical Records as a software purchase," says Yann Beaullan-Thong, CEO of MResult Healthcare. "We see EMRs as an exercise in process engineering. Most Health Information Systems are rigid in their design. They either dictate that you follow their pre-defined clinical workflows, or charge exorbitant prices for customization. We want to leave the practice of medicine in the hands of physicians, not software designers. Technology should support how they want to practice medicine. As a company, MResult Healthcare is focused on providing our customers with practical, cost effective solutions. The PatientOS software is the perfect platform to implement our solution on."
"We developed PatientOS with an advanced modern software architecture to allow for easy customization." says Gregory Caulton, Principal at PatientOS Inc. "Everything from forms to workflow to the entire user interface can be configured through easy to use admin screens, with no coding involved. From that standpoint, we look at the PatientOS software as a rapid development platform rather than a static product. We made the decision to release the product as open source because we want to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. It has been a personal dream to deliver to healthcare what Linus and Red Hat delivered to the world with Linux."
"Customer empowerment is what makes our solution different." Says Beaullan-Thong. "Our Design, Build, Validate approach was created to encourage knowledge transfer. At the start of an engagement our professional services group is heavily involved in helping our clients define their specific business and clinical goals, map out the desired clinical workflows and determine the true costs in time and resources involved. As we move to build out the solution we typically begin the knowledge transfer process in earnest, with the hospital's IT staff often sharing in the actual development of the solution. "
"Having the combination of the right implementation team and product is key." says Caulton. "Our clients and partners such as MResult Healthcare will see tremendous savings and ROI as they roll out PatientOS solutions without exorbitant licensing costs associated with traditional commercial systems."
