Akademos Latam turns to Misys to expand healthcare IT services

Misys Healthcare Systems : 19 December, 2007  (New Product)
Akademos Latam has purchased Misys Healthcare Systems' Misys EMR and Misys Tiger systems as a technology platform to begin offering advanced electronic medical record and practice management services to healthcare providers in Texas and New Mexico.
The contract marks Akademos Latam’s initial push into the healthcare vertical market as an Application Service Provider (ASP) and extends the company’s current portfolio of offerings beyond IT consulting and managed services for general business clients.

Scheduled for installation this year, the Misys products seamlessly integrate with one another to give Akademos Latam a complete range of sophisticated features to help optimise the clinical and business operations of medical practices. With electronic medical records, physicians gain fast access to patient information to improve the quality of care via enhanced workflows, diagnostic advice, intuitive prescribing features and pharmacy connections. Practice management capabilities boost office efficiency and help eliminate the time-consuming administrative tasks associated with appointment scheduling, patient communications, and the entire revenue-cycle management process.

“By addressing the most important aspects of a medical practice quality healthcare, patient safety, and operational efficiencies the Misys products give Akademos Latam a solid foundation for success in delivering services to a new market territory,” said Mike Etue, senior vice president of sales for Misys Healthcare. “The ability of Akademos Latam to handle all the infrastructure, hosting, and application support requirements as a service provider represents a compelling and cost-effective alternative for physicians interested in adding the latest healthcare IT.”

As part of its new healthcare focus, Akademos Latam also will begin promoting Misys Payerpath services to enable physicians to better manage the revenue cycles and claims transactions that are critical to the business success of medical practices.

“The skill set and capabilities Akademos Latam brings to clients in terms of service, support, expert advice, and information technology infrastructure are a natural fit for the healthcare market,” said Hector J Pina, president of Akademos Latam. “By leveraging our knowledge base and experience, medical practices can easily incorporate the latest healthcare applications without being technology experts; and because these advanced capabilities are available as a service, we’re able to reduce some of the pricing barriers that are impediments to adopting new technology. We’re excited to be working with Misys as we branch out into this dynamic market segment.”

The initial service rollout to healthcare clients in the Texas area is just the starting point for Akademos Latam. The company plans to expand its healthcare service territory into New Mexico, Oklahoma and other areas in the future.
