New Misys software provides practice management solution for small medical practices

Misys Healthcare Systems : 25 October, 2007  (New Product)
Misys Healthcare Systems has introduced Misys MyWay, an integrated solution for small medical practices and sole practitioners that offers full-featured capabilities for electronic medical records, practice management, and claims management.
Available as a hosted solution, Misys MyWay offers a value for money healthcare technology that is easier for smaller practices to access.

'More than half of all patient encounters in the USA each year are provided in the offices of sole practitioners or groups with two or three physicians. The EMR adoption rate in this segment of the physician market has dramatically lagged that of larger practices. High initial cost and the complexity of ongoing IT operations are often cited as two key reasons for physician reluctance', said Marc Holland, research director at IDC's Health Industry Insights.

'Broad adoption of EMR technology by practices of all sizes is critical if the healthcare industry is to achieve the full benefit of EMR use. With the launch of Misys MyWay software, the company has taken a significant step towards facilitating widespread EMR adoption by breaking down these barriers to entry.'

'Right now, EMR adoption rates among small one and two-person medical practices are in the single digits,' said R L (Vern) Davenport, executive vice president and general manager of Misys Healthcare, 'and these practices are missing the advantages that healthcare IT can bring to improve clinical efficiency and enhance the quality of patient care. The best way to change that statistic is to give physicians an unbeatable value proposition to consider ... a complete solution that is both affordable and easy to use. With the Misys MyWay product, I believe we've delivered on all counts.'

The Misys MyWay solution incorporates a number of innovative features that make the application simple and intuitive from a user's perspective. Created to work the way physicians do, Misys MyWay software overcomes cost and complexity barriers with performance capabilities that include:

Offline synchronisation - allows users to work anywhere, anytime, even without a network connection. Changes and entries are automatically synchronised to update records when users reconnect.

Adaptive learning - the application learns and adapts to each user's unique patterns and preferences to make workflow and charting easier.

Intelligent navigation - displays relevant clinical content based on patient symptoms and suggests next logical entry options. Users can move freely anywhere in the application without enter or exit screens.

Template-free charting - gives users unrestricted workflow to document multiple conditions or handle multiple patients easily.

Easy customisation - allows each user in the practice to quickly change screens and content to match their personal preferences.

This is the first in a family of Misys MyWay offerings to be introduced in the coming months to help accelerate the adoption of electronic Medical record technology among smaller physician practices. These offerings will complement the company's existing portfolio of solutions for larger practices and post-acute healthcare providers.
