Medsphere Migrates Acute and Ambulatory EHRs to the CloudMarch 20, 2017
Medsphere Systems Corporation, the leading provider of affordable and interoperable healthcare information technology (IT) solutions and services, has moved into cloud-based services with the implementation of the company’s OpenVista electronic health record (EHR) at the Behavioral Center of Michigan and Samaritan Behavioral Center. The fully cloud-based version of OpenVista gives both Detroit-area facilities and other current and future clients greater accessibility and saves the expense of local servers and data centers.
The successful Behavioral Center go-live is confirmation of Medsphere’s cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy, which is also currently being rolled out at other client sites.
“Clearly, the future of healthcare IT is in cloud-based applications and SaaS models that give clinicians, staff and patients the ability to access relevant data and functionality from anywhere,” said Medsphere CEO Irv Lichtenwald. “We’re very excited to give our existing and new clients cloud-based options now, which will save them both the expense and headache of having to implement and maintain hardware on site. Even though some of our clients still prefer and are best served by onsite servers, we’re very pleased to offer web-based IT as an alternative.”
OpenVista on the cloud is accessible from all the most commonly used platforms, including Windows, Linux and MacOS. OpenVista and our ChartLogic EHR deployed as services also give Medsphere the ability to implement either solution more rapidly than with onsite deployments.
Medsphere’s OpenVista EHR is an acute and inpatient behavioral health-oriented portfolio of clinical products and services. On top of public domain computer code available through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Medsphere has developed numerous enhancements that meet the needs and desires of hospitals and other facilities.
