Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Prowess Inc., a California-based developer of software solutions for oncology practices, is partnering with Ignis Systems to integrate lab ordering and results into the company’s soon-to-be-released Panther EMR|OIS|PACS solution.
The Panther solution extends Prowess’ offerings, previously focused around radiation treatment planning, by providing practice management, ePrescribing, and patient charting to meet the needs of the entire oncology practice. The new offering, which will have a worldwide market, integrates OrdersAnywhere, Ignis’ web-hosted CPOE (computerized physician order entry) solution, into the oncology workflow.
According to Prowess CEO John Nguyen, the company’s decision to partner with Ignis was based on several key factors. “We looked at business philosophy, product capabilities, and the fact that Ignis supports all major U.S. labs plus many independent labs, and is continuously bringing in more. But I think the main factor was OrdersAnywhere’s ease of use, which aligns well with Prowess’ highly intuitive web-based user interface. Like ours, Ignis’s approach is very straightforward, very user friendly.”
Another success factor in the partnership is a harmonious development philosophy. Says Nguyen, “We’ve found the Ignis team to be very responsive and nimble. That agility is what’s making this accelerated development process possible.” Prowess plans to demonstrate its new offering at ASTRO, the annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (Boston, October 28–31).
Says Ken Willett, Ignis Systems CEO, “The partnership with Prowess shows off OrdersAnywhere’s ease of integration, as well as its capacity to work with a highly customizable specialty solution. We’re excited about the worldwide visibility for our solutions that will come from this partnership with Prowess.”
