INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iSALUS Healthcare, a privately held Electronic Medical Records and Practice Management solutions provider, today announces the launch of their next generation OfficeEMR™ to include a comprehensive Patient Timeline. The Patient Timeline converts volumes of discrete patient data into useful information, allowing for a simple, yet concise examination of the patient's medical record. By delivering clinical information in an enhanced visual format, clinicians can quickly evaluate and compare critical facts with drilldown capabilities to gather additional insight into changing patient trends.
The new Patient Timeline delivers a visually intuitive experience that is well suited for established patient relationships, or a clinician simply reviewing the chart for the first time. Clinical information such as medication summaries, lab results, progress notes, immunizations, office communications and other vital events as well as newly scanned documents and Obstetric data are easily reviewed in a compressed graphical format. A clinician can hover over any of the timeline markers for a synopsis, or click any event markers for more detailed information.
"The EMR industry is quickly transforming. No longer can an EMR provider survive with a simple land grab mentality. The market place is maturing, and EMR companies must present and deliver meaningful value to medical community in order to remain competitive," said Michael Hall, founder and CEO. "iSALUS' new Patient Timeline tool provides our clinicians with timely and intuitive health information to help manage care and deliver better outcomes. We are committed to preparing our users for a changing health market, including evolving reimbursement and value-based payment models."
Most electronic medical records have mastered the basics of capturing and reporting data. Naturally, the next evolution for EMRs must be to transform the collected data into useful health information. One great benefit of iSALUS' cloud based service is the new Patient Timeline feature has already been deployed simultaneously across iSALUS' portfolio of clients and included as part of OfficeEMR's basic subscription fee.
"Over the past several months, my counterparts continue to share their EMR frustrations such as their practice being less productive, or their complete frustration with the training and implementation process. I continue to share OfficeEMR as a refreshing solution to so many EMR-scarred physicians. Our team continues to deliver value and services for the future of medicine," said Dr. Chuck Dietzen, founder and Chief Medical Officer.
iSALUS Healthcare has launched its Patient Timeline feature in advance of the 2013 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition scheduled for March 3-7, 2013 in New Orleans, LA. Interested practices can experience the Patient Timeline by visiting iSALUS Healthcare or dialing 888.280.6678.
