DR Systems Announces Upcoming Release of Ambulatory Imaging-Centric EHR

Cloud-Based, Vendor-Neutral, Completely Certified EHR Designed Specifically for Medical Imaging Specialists’ Meaningful Use Compliance

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DR Systems, one of the most respected names in healthcare information systems, announced today the company is developing an ambulatory imaging-centric EHR. The cloud-based, vendor-neutral EHR is planned to be available in the fourth quarter of 2011 and will be certified to facilitate meaningful use compliance for medical imaging specialists.

“Our new imaging-centric EHR is in keeping with our mission to enhance the clinical and financial success of our medical imaging customers,” said Murray A. Reicher, M.D., F.A.C.R., Chairman of DR Systems, “It will be a vendor-neutral, cloud-based solution that can be used with any RIS, HIS, CVIS as a web-service plug-in, or standalone, so imaging specialists can obtain their incentive bonus and avoid future penalties. The intent is to help imaging specialists avoid the cost and inefficient workflow created by piecing together several certified modules. Instead, the DR System EHR will provide one system that can help specialists reach compliance within the context of medical imaging workflow, and one system that can wholly track compliance in real-time.”

DR Systems’ imaging-centric EHR will be tightly integrated with the company’s Unity™ RIS-CVIS-PACS-Reporting platform to eliminate duplicate data entry. Alternatively, facilities that do not have the Unity platform can order tight integration of the EHR with any RIS, HIS, or cardiovascular information system via a web-service interface.

Utilizing open standards and technology, DR Systems imaging-centric EHR is based on a solution from the top-ranked (2010) KLAS® PACS product category vendor. DR Systems’ approach enables organizations to integrate patient information and images from multiple departments and data sources into one common platform and database.
