Southeastern Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine showcases interoperability
benefits of standards based, numerically codified EMRs
MILWAUKEE, WI, June 25 /CNW/ - MedcomSoft Inc. (TSX-MSF), a provider of
the next generation of interoperable electronic health records (EHR),
announced today that it has seamlessly completed the conversion of patients'
clinical records of Southeastern Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine
("Southeastern Peds"), a 12-physician pediatric practice, from a competitor's
EMR system to MedcomSoft Record. All of the Medcin(R) based clinical data and
all scanned documentation and images were fully converted - including having
previously scanned documentation and images fully linked to the applicable
patient chart in MedcomSoft Record.
Southeastern Peds is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is a part of the
Independent Physicians Network, Inc. ("IPN") community. The principal doctor
at Southeastern Peds, Dr. Noemi Prieto, is also the Executive Vice-President
of IPN. Southeastern Peds was previously using another EMR/PM system and was a
reference site for the vendor of that system. "We switched to MedcomSoft
because of their commitment to customer service - which they clearly exhibited
during the implementation; and their strong relationship with the IPN; and the
superiority of the functionality of their product, including their unique and
robust implementation of Medcin," stated Dr. Prieto. "Moving to MedcomSoft
Record, a leading Medcin based product, also allowed for the seamless
conversion of our patient data and documentation."
MedcomSoft Record, which is believed to be the first truly interoperable
EMR, is built entirely around Medcin, the most comprehensive point of care
vocabulary available in the market today. MedcomSoft's unique cross-mapping
between the Medcin terminology, drug brand names and diagnostic laboratory
results provides unprecedented homogeneous patient charts. Automatic linking
to other standard terminologies such as CPT(R), ICD-9-CM, LOINC(R) and
SNOMED(R) provides a flexible platform for data exchange and compatibility
with other systems and standards.
"MedcomSoft's success at the conversion of Southeastern's data is another
demonstration of the superior interoperability of MedcomSoft Record and shows
the significant benefit of utilizing Medcin," stated Dr. Aita, the Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer of MedcomSoft.
