I saw a really good survey about the technical systems that University Health Centers in the Sun Belt region are using. It covered Medical Clinic Systems, Electronic Medical Records, Appointments made by email and online, Pharmacy systems, Mental Health Systems, Wellness Education Systems(not many of these), Laboratory, Digital X-ray and Computer portals. I twas interesting to see the variety. In fact, there was a lot more variety than I would have expected. Pyramed seems to have a good Medical Clinic System(I assume this is appointments and billing probably) because so many University’s had it. This could also because it is only the Sunbelt region. Medicat seemed to have the most listed for EMR with a variety of other choices. QS/1 seems to be the pharmacy of choice.
I was a little disappointed that this was just a subset of the US. I would love to see a similar survey for the entire US. I also wish it was in excel rather than PDF, but that was even more important for the jobs part of the survey. Here’s a link to the tech report.
