The recent changes in Medicare and Medicaid ‘meaningful use’ laws created a technological chasm for some small and medium practices here in the US.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
EasyCloud, the founder and global leader in IPSaaS Consumer Cloud technology, and OpenMRS the world's leading open source enterprise electronic medical record system platform have announced a key partnership where EasyCloud will implement cloud based solutions for the OpenMRS community of developers and users.
"We're looking forward to seeing your organization's success. Our community appreciates the collaborative opportunity!" said Paul Biondich, the co-founder of OpenMRS. Biondich and his development team have agreed to help EasyCloud with the development and US Medicare\Medicaid certification of OpenMRS in the US market.
“I can’t tell you how delighted we are to partner with OpenMRS and their whole community. They’ve been doing some amazing things in advancing health medicine especially in developing countries. The demand for Electronic Medical Records and Health Information extends to all corners of our globe and the OpenMRS community is one of the most proven and powerful platforms available today,” said CEO, and founder of EasyCloud, Jared Rice.
“The recent changes in Medicare and Medicaid ‘meaningful use’ laws created a technological chasm for some small and medium practices here in the US. We wanted to partner with the best platform available in order to bring the best solution to those practices while at the same time offering all of the global users a more robust solution in the cloud.” Stanley Ford, VP of Product and founder of IPSaaS technology continues: “Given the complexity of global health information regulations and here at home, HIPAA compliance, we had to work with our partner Rackspace to design and build out a separate and secure private cloud specifically for supporting Electronic Health and Medical Records. Now health practices, clinics, doctors and hospitals both here in the US and around the world can use OpenMRS at an affordable price.”
OpenMRS is a software platform and a reference application which enables design of a customized medical records system with no programming knowledge (although medical and systems analysis knowledge is required). It is a common platform upon which medical informatics efforts can be built. The system is based on a conceptual database structure which is not dependent on the actual types of medical information required to be collected or on particular data collection forms and so can be customized for different uses.
