PRLog - March 30, 2012 - FLINT, Mich. -- Flint, Michigan |Mobiusoft Introduces Leading Edge Integrated Electronic Health Recordkeeping System. Mobiusoft, LLC offers specialized software technologies for the health industry and has solved a long-standing medical information exchange problem in which patient records are scattered among physicians, pharmacists, healthcare teams or others that provide an individual patient’s services, making it impossible for quality coordination of care and increasing the likelihood of duplicating costly medical services. Although many healthcare providers have started transitioning from paper to electronic medical recordkeeping (EMR) as a result of government incentives leading the industry toward improving quality and reducing costs, they are primarily localized electronic records within a physician’s office or a hospital system. As most of those localized systems don’t interconnect or “talk” to each other, patients still have to obtain and carry their own medical records from one provider to the next, or go through completing a 4-5 page “new patient” medical history form.
Velocity EHR from MobiuSoft
Mobiusoft, LLC has designed a leading-edge internet-based health/medical records (EHR) system that is fully integrated with a Health Information Exchange (HIE). The Greater Flint Health Information Exchange provides safe, reliable, coordinated and secure sharing of patient information between healthcare providers; it allows patients full-view access to their own medical records; and it provides for electronic communications between patients and their health care providers.
When asked why he chose Flint, owner and President Jerry Van Horn stated, “It’s the perfect place for our headquarters. First, because Flint has ‘a new attitude’ for reinventing itself evidenced by the wealth of business development resources and community support like the assistance we receive from the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center at Kettering University; second, because Flint is a major hub for healthcare innovation anchored by Genesys, Hurley and McLaren Medical Centers as well as other healthcare businesses and organizations;
He continued, “We are very excited to be part of an industry that is expected to grow from $1.5 to 4.5 billion over the next 5 years. When there are 100’s of independent electronic medical records systems, a Health Information Exchange like this is an important asset to our local and regional community. We have an opportunity not only to help improve health care quality and efficiency, but to help healthcare providers bring in more than $100 million in federal incentive payments for using EHR technology as well as create high-tech jobs in our community. Currently Michigan has less than 2% of the nation’s market share in health care software development and we are working on changing that by planting our national headquarters in Flint.”
Although primarily marketed to healthcare providers, Mobiusoft, LLC will be holding community demonstrations so individuals can see first-hand the consumer/patient functions of this system, including privacy management, electronic communications for appointment and prescription refill requests, test results view, immunization history, current medications, referrals, past and future medical appointments, and more.
