Sigmund Software chooses Ignis Systems to deliver integrated lab and radiology orders and results to thousands of users in 30 states.

Sigmund Software™, a New York-based provider of EHR (electronic health record) software for behavioral health and addiction treatment organizations, chooses Ignis Systems of Portland, Oregon to deliver integrated lab and radiology orders and results to thousands of users in 30 states.

OrdersAnywhere, Ignis’ web-hosted CPOE (computerized physician order entry) solution, will be embedded in the Sigmund EMR workflow for ordering and routing of labs. Full integration of the two complementary products is slated for general availability in January 2013.

Cory C. Valentine, Director of Client Development at Sigmund Software, cites clinical usability as a major factor in selecting Ignis, describing the order entry screen as “very modern and incredibly easy to use.” Valentine also notes Ignis’ patient-friendly Enhanced Results as a key usability factor: “Ignis’ Enhanced Results are very clear and easy for patients to understand, especially in the way abnormal results are highlighted.”

Valentine praises the collaborative and structured process of implementing the Ignis functionality, not just in terms of software integration, but also as the company rolls out to its customers and the lab vendors they work with. “It all starts with their systematic implementation methodology. Ignis really understands what it takes to connect clinics with labs quickly and seamlessly. Not only do they offer existing connections with over 120 lab vendors, but they also have a great way of helping us reach out to labs not already in the hub. Given the current economic climate and rapidly changing healthcare delivery requirements, everyone is looking for the value-add. Ignis really delivers it.”

Valentine sees the partnership with Ignis as a strong one for Sigmund. “Functionality means a lot, but relationships are worth even more. The Ignis team has been wonderful, taking the time to know our process, understand our pain points, and work to help our customers succeed. Collaboration with and responsiveness to our customers continues to be the hallmark of Sigmund Software. Finding a partner that shares that same passion for perfection and customer satisfaction was paramount to our selection.”

Says Ken Willett, Ignis Systems CEO, “Sigmund is a strong partner for us, with a significant presence and nationwide coverage in the behavioral health EMR market. Their focus on workflow efficiency and improving patient care is very much aligned with our customer approach. We love this match.”
