Spring Medical Systems Unveils SpringReports Interface to Deliver Imaging Reports for Electronic Health Records

Electronic Delivery of Imaging Reports Increases Efficiency, Reduces Costs and Errors for Improved Patient Care

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 22, 2007 -- Spring Medical Systems, a leading provider of easy-to-use software solutions that empower physicians to increase efficiency, reduce costs and provide better patient care, announced today the availability of SpringReports™. SpringReports electronically delivers imaging reports and other text documents securely and directly to medical practices, saving both time and money while reducing the chance for human error.

SpringReports builds upon Spring Medical's SpringCharts®, a CCHIT-certified electronic health record (EHR) solution that emphasizes affordable functionality and intuitive ease-of-use for small-to-medium sized doctors' offices. SpringReports is an HL7-compliant interface and data management tool that imports virtually any medical report or document, such as those relating to radiology or medical tests, directly into SpringCharts.

"SpringCharts gives the most value for the money of any system currently on the market and integrates seamlessly with my practice management software," said Dr. A.R. Garcia. "It is the easiest, most user-friendly system I have encountered, bar none. Due to proven results, it was an easy decision to integrate the functionality of SpringReports into my SpringCharts."

Dr. Garcia and his practice, The Medical Center of East Houston, along with Houston-based River Oaks Imaging and Diagnostic, were instrumental in the development of SpringReports and worked closely with Spring Medical on the first implementation.

“We are very excited about our relationship with Spring Medical,” said Jim King, CEO of River Oaks. “We believe this collaboration will improve the efficiency of healthcare delivery for both the physician and River Oaks. Patients benefit greatly from cost-effective, quality healthcare.”

With SpringReports, doctors' offices may easily view reports and other important medical documents and attach them to the appropriate medical chart in a fraction of the time it takes using conventional means. The message is received in SpringReports and presented to the SpringCharts user as a formatted, easy-to-view document. It is then stored in the relevant patient's chart, remaining easily accessible and virtually eliminating the potential for error created by re-keying the text or scanning documents into the system.

"With SpringReports, Spring Medical is building upon its mission to provide an easy-to-use, complete and affordable electronic health record system," said Spring Medical CEO Jack Smyth. "By finding an affordable way for small- and medium-sized doctors' offices to integrate the speed and ease of electronic record-keeping into their daily work lives, Spring Medical is saving practices time and money. We are reducing the chance for human error and, most importantly, improving overall patient experience and care."

SpringReports is immediately available from Spring Medical Systems or from one of the company's Value Added Resellers (VARs) located throughout the U.S.
