Sogeti's new Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solutions help healthcare providers smoothly transition to the latest EMR systems and maximize benefits from "Meaningful Use" Act
DAYTON, Ohio, June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sogeti, a leading international provider of professional IT services, announced today that it has released new solutions designed to help healthcare providers migrate to the latest electronic medical records (EMR) systems.
EMR systems store patient information such as medical history and demographic information and also allow providers to complete tasks such as transmitting prescriptions and checking insurance information electronically. Healthcare providers that have achieved meaningful use of these systems this year will be eligible for incentive payments from the federal government.
Many healthcare providers have been using legacy EMR systems for some time; however, in order to address the meaningful use requirements and operational requirements, they will need to upgrade to a newer system which can be a difficult and time consuming process to manage.
Sogeti has deep healthcare expertise and has developed solutions specifically to help providers address the information technology requirements to effectively implement the latest EMR systems and minimize the risk of errors or delays in implementation.
"Migrating to the latest EMR system can take 18 to 36 months," explains Andrew Tessier, Vice President of Healthcare Solutions for Sogeti USA. "With the sensitive potential impact to the organization, it is extremely important for healthcare providers to work with an expert who can ensure a smooth conversion. Sogeti's new solutions provide end-to-end service so that healthcare providers can focus on their priorities."
Sogeti's new EMR solutions provide healthcare organizations with technical and programming support to replace or augment their existing systems. Sogeti has a Healthcare Service Center based in Minneapolis, MN that can help providers:
- Perform data conversions and archival of legacy EMR data
- Develop interfaces and reports necessary for the replacement EMR
- Address the data warehouse requirements to support operational reporting
- Implement a test plan to ensure a quality release
- Provide 24X7 application and system support—including trouble ticket management and maintenance of computing and application environments
- Provide support for disaster recovery—including planning, building, documenting and testing
- Implement automation tools to allow for faster service at a lower cost
"Sogeti has implemented these solutions for healthcare providers and has been able to help them achieve great results during their EMR implementations—time savings, risk mitigation, lower operating costs and simplified migrations," explains Tessier.
Sogeti also offers solutions to help healthcare providers who have not yet starting using EMR systems in their business.
