VitalHealth Software has entered into collaboration with Mayo Clinic to develop a next-generation electronic medical record (EMR) designed to support the workflow of primary care physicians.
The next-generation primary care record under development by Mayo Clinic and VitalHealth Software expects to create simplicity at the point of care while contributing to quality of care and patient satisfaction.
The technology platform is based on several years of development and systems implementation design within the primary care practices at Mayo Clinic Rochester. The new solution will support the workflow needs of current medical practices, including point-of-care decision support, population management and reporting. The system is designed to be easier to use than current EMR solutions and minimizes data entry.
The key features of EMR include: support for the workflow of primary care practices, smart alerts and recommendations based on Mayo medical knowledge, disease management and population management, integrated patient portal, enabling connected medical home, certified for meaningful use.
VitalHealth Software said that the solution will be delivered via the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, providing anytime, anywhere access via a web browser while also minimizing set up, training, and system maintenance time.
Laurens van der Tang, CEO of VitalHealth Software, said: We believe this solution will combine the best of several worlds. It will bring together some great ideas from physicians working long days in busy practices, medical knowledge from Mayo Clinic, and our own experience in building reliable, easy-to-use medical software. As part of this collaboration, Mayo Clinic has licensed technology to VitalHealth Software and holds equity in the company.
