Microsoft is focused on working with companies such as gloStream to improve access to information with offerings that connect different systems, processes and people across the health ecosystem.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 2, 2010
gloStream, maker of gloEMR, gloPM and gloSuite medical practice software applications with Microsoft Office built in, today announced it has maintained a 100 percent success rate, even while rapidly increasing the number of medical practices it helps to convert to electronic medical records. Every single practice that has installed a gloStream product continues to use it today. The announcement was made during the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society ("HIMSS") Conference.
gloStream attributes its industry leading success rate to its proprietary process known as gloDNA, its community of certified Partners and its products. gloDNA, which stands for "gloStream Detailed Needs Analysis" is an exclusive process that allows gloStream to gather information about a practice, and then tailor a unique solution that matches the specific needs of the doctors. gloStream's local technology Partners who sell and support gloStream solutions use gloDNA to customize the software when working with physicians.
"I think the gloDNA process is a huge part of the reason that our implementation was so successful," said Dr. Julio Sosa, M.D., a Michigan-based plastic surgeon and gloStream client. "gloStream didn't just show us a demo and shove a contract at us - they took the time to understand our practice and the needs of every doctor here. We couldn't be happier."
A 2009 report in Healthcare IT News found that doctors were de-installing non-gloStream software because of training issues, functionality or financial concerns. Industry experts suggest a nationwide de-installation rate that could be as high as 40 percent. With a perfect 100 percent success rate, gloStream is bucking the industry trend.
"One of the largest hurdles to improvements in the quality of care is the inability to make health information easily available to the right people at the right time," said Chris Sullivan, U.S. health provider industry solutions director, Microsoft. "Microsoft is focused on working with companies such as gloStream to improve access to information with offerings that connect different systems, processes and people across the health ecosystem."
