Medsphere Introduces Mobile OpenVista Enterprise to MOVE Clinicians Away From the Desktop

MOVE makes real-time patient data in the OpenVista EHR available anywhere users have web access

CARLSBAD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Medsphere Systems Corporation, the leading provider of affordable and interoperable healthcare information technology (IT) solutions, today introduced Mobile OpenVista® Enterprise (MOVE). MOVE liberates OpenVista EHR data from the desktop and enables physicians and clinical staff to work more effectively and efficiently.

MOVE provides secure, mobile, real time access to patient information—medications, allergies, problems, orders, documentation—anywhere a clinician has WiFi or cell coverage. Physicians can use MOVE at home to review medication orders. Nurses can use MOVE at the bedside to record information about a patient’s changing condition. With MOVE, clinicians have information in hand and can answer questions immediately while cutting down on trips to the PC.

MOVE includes NoteAssist, Medsphere’s advanced patient documentation system, enabling robust patient data on mobile devices. Clinicians can speak or type text into the fully templated system, giving flexibility to users and control to administrators. With MOVE, clinicians can start a note in the hallway and seamlessly complete it on the desktop, or start a note on the desktop in the office and finish and sign it from home. For physicians and clinical staff, NoteAssist and MOVE are a liberating combination.

“Without doubt, healthcare IT is moving toward mobility and enhanced, streamlined processes,” said Medsphere President and CEO Irv Lichtenwald. “Medsphere is excited about moving OpenVista in that same direction. When you factor in the proven nature of OpenVista and the affordability of our subscription service, Medsphere offers acute and behavioral health hospitals a clearly superior platform without the excessive costs of so many other options.”

Beyond recent enhancements to OpenVista, Medsphere recently expanded the company’s line of products and services via mergers with Phoenix Health Systems and MBS/Net, both now divisions of Medsphere. Phoenix Health Systems is a recognized provider of healthcare IT services, including systems implementation, compliance project management, service desk, end-user device management, infrastructure support, application management and IT leadership. Currently being integrated with OpenVista, MBS/Net’s suite of ambulatory physician enterprise products include a fourth-generation physician practice management system, ambulatory electronic health record (EHR), document management system and an advanced physician practice scheduling application, as well as the company’s established outsourced revenue cycle management (RCM) and practice hardware management services.

Derived from the proven VistA system developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Indian Health Service, OpenVista is a comprehensive EHR platform combining both clinical and financial applications. Medsphere’s Government Services Division also applies extensive knowledge of VistA to development and testing work for the VA and Indian Health Service.
