MedcomSoft Record EMR Selected by Physician Practices Across the Nation, Including A Major New York City Hospital's Community Physician HIT Pilot Group

    ATLANTA, April 11 /CNW/ - MedcomSoft Inc. (TSX-MSF), a provider of the
next generation of interoperable electronic health records (EHR), today
announced that quarterly sales of MedcomSoft Record licenses continue to
surpass fiscal 2006 levels as the Company's growth in sales occurs across the
country and among numerous specialties.
    Since January 2007, MedcomSoft Record has been acquired by practices
located in Florida, Louisiana, Texas, New York, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin and
Pennsylvania in various specialties, including family practice, pediatrics,
OB/GYN, oncology, pain management, internal medicine, nephrology, psychology
and neurology.
    Included within the practices that have acquired MedcomSoft Record are
four leading practices within the approximately 140 member New York
Presbyterian Hospital's Community Physician Group at Columbia University
Medical Center. Following an exhaustive evaluation, the four practices that
make up the Community Physicians of New York - Presbyterian at Columbia
University Medical Center integrated health information technology pilot group
agreed to acquire MedcomSoft Record. "In keeping with the New York -
Presbyterian Hospital's leading edge reputation in healthcare information
technology the hospital's community physicians HIT pilot group set lofty goals
in the areas of clinical documentation and interoperability," said Gabriel
Guardarramas, M.D., M.P.H., Chairman, Community Physicians of New York -
Presbyterian at Columbia University Medical Center. "While a number of vendors
offered the front end functionality we were looking for, MedcomSoft paired the
functionality/workflow we required with a system infrastructure that was
functionally different and better suited to support our
documentation/interoperability goals. We felt the MedcomSoft system
infrastructure would give our member physicians a strategic advantage,
securing both our project goals and our investment well into the future."
