RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2014) - (HIMSS Booth: #4388) -- Viztek, the leading provider of complete digital software and hardware diagnostic imaging solutions, will showcase its new EHR solution to CIOs and IT professionals at the upcoming Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference & exhibition in Orlando, Fla., February 24-27. Entirely web-based and compatible with any platform, the Viztek EHR enables enhanced communication between practices and hospitals, and is designed to meet all requirements for Meaningful Use stage 2 and beyond.
In light of Meaningful Use Stage 2 requiring functionalities enabling the exchange of trending data, such as cancer case information, Viztek has developed an EHR solution especially committed to such information exchange. The solution is equipped with capabilities for identifying and reporting specific case information from a certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) to a specialized registry, where admissible, for the entire EHR reporting period - such as cancer information to a public health central cancer registry.
The Viztek solution additionally offers benefits such as:
- removing the need for forms to be scanned, for follow-ups to signatures, and the faxing or personal delivery of important items
- enabling users to electronically record, change, access and search electronic notes in patient records
- access to imaging results including the original image and accompanying information, via CEHRT
"Bridging the gaps in interaction for physicians in the hospital and referrers in practices or clinics outside of hospitals and health systems is critical to optimizing the greater care cycle for patients," said Josip Cermin, President of Viztek. "Our EHR represents our dedication to consistent, proactive innovation that will support the industry through a challenging transition to improved healthcare."
Full functionality and platform agnostic
The Viztek EHR, compatible with MAC, Android, Windows and more, is the first platform-agnostic EHR solution capable of full functionality at the browser-based level regardless of the operating system or device used. By providing an EHR that efficiently weaves together the company's established expertise in practice management, billing, order entry, PACS, radiology reports, patient portals and other software products currently offered, Viztek can act as a one-stop-shop to help facilities overcome integration obstacles as well as the challenges posed by a transforming healthcare landscape.
"The issues and expenses that go into enabling interface compatibilities with different vendors to launch important applications from an EHR, such as PACS, are more than facilities can undertake in the current healthcare environment," said Steve Deaton, Vice President, Viztek. "The Viztek EHR removes pressures to select traditional, big-name vendors and offers facilities the choice of a cost-effective and easy-to-use solution."
Going a step beyond simply providing necessary functionalities, the Viztek EHR solution additionally delivers ease-of-use for physicians. A recent survey conducted by research firm MPI Group on behalf of Medical Economics, revealed overwhelming physician frustration with EHRs and also reported that nearly two-thirds of doctors would not purchase their current system again due to poor functionality and high costs. Keeping ease-of-use in mind, the Viztek EHR not only makes the right tools accessible to the right people - it ensures that those tools are designed to keep physicians as effective as possible, improving turnaround time and maximizing the overall efficiency of care process."A strong foundation in communication is integral to the eventual delivery of better results, increased productivity, and satisfied physicians," added Deaton.
