Frost & Sullivan Honors Medicomp Systems with the EHR Optimization Technology Leadership Award
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2018
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Medicomp Systems, a physician-driven provider of clinically contextual patient data solutions, today announced that Frost & Sullivan has named Medicomp as the winner of its 2018 North American Electronic Health Record (EHR) Optimization Technology Leadership Award for its Quippe suite of solutions. Frost & Sullivan selected Medicomp's Quippe based on its ability to help organizations optimize their EHRs to reduce the documentation burden for physicians at the point of care and use clinical data to improve patient outcomes.
Physicians face numerous challenges that impede their ability to focus on direct patient care. Frost & Sullivan recognizes Quippe's ability to eliminate several of these challenges with productivity-enhancing tools that streamline the documentation process, improve point-of-care access to critical patient data, and facilitate the interoperability of clinical information.
"Medicomp Systems' advanced Quippe software suite addresses crucial market gaps by providing a better user experience and removing many of the technology roadblocks that negatively impact physician productivity and interfere with the delivery of quality patient care," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst, Digital Health, Nancy Fabozzi. "Clinicians that are unhappy with their existing technology can enhance their EHR's usability with the addition of Quippe, which can be seamlessly integrated into existing clinical workflows to optimize functionality at the point of care. With Quippe, Medicomp has created a solution that not only enables high-quality clinical documentation, but also drives better patient care and improves physician satisfaction."
Frost & Sullivan's Technology Leadership Award recognizes companies that lead the development and successful introduction of high-tech solutions to address customers' most pressing needs and alter the industry or business landscape in the process.
"We are honored that Frost & Sullivan has recognized Quippe as a technology solution that's helping healthcare organizations to clinically optimize their existing EHRs and address some of the industry's toughest challenges," said Medicomp CEO David Lareau. "This award serves as a confirmation that our four decades of work creating clinical solutions is making a difference in healthcare to improve physician productivity, increase organizational efficiencies and facilitate better patient care."
Frost & Sullivan commends Quippe's ability to address several key industry challenges, including the following:
Inefficient technologies that hurt physician productivity and satisfaction
Quippe optimizes the usability and return on investment (ROI) of existing EHRs by enhancing the documentation functionality and streamlining workflows. In addition, Quippe simplifies the tracking of quality measures and other activities required for a regulatory program, thereby reducing administrative burdens for physicians, driving greater efficiency and satisfaction, and enabling more time for patient care. Clinicians who have added Quippe to their existing EHRs report increased productivity, allowing them to see up to 30 percent more patients.
The need for targeted, structured data to drive quality outcomes
New value-based care payment models reward physicians for delivering high-quality, cost-effective care. Quippe transforms complex, disorganized data into structured, high-value information within comprehensive problem-oriented views. Physicians have point-of-care access to highly targeted clinal information about a specific patient for any known or suspected disease state, thereby enhancing clinicians' decision making and allowing them to close care gaps immediately. In addition, care is delivered efficiently, and health outcomes are optimized.
The lack of interoperability puts patients at risk
Optimal care requires all members of the care team to have access to a patient's complete medical history; however, the widespread lack of interoperability between disparate systems hinders the exchange of critical patient data. Quippe facilitates bi-directional interoperability between different systems with its mappings of millions of clinical concepts, including SNOMED-CT, RxNorm, LOINC, and ICD-10. Quippe intelligently identifies and interprets disorganized and complex arrays of medical information from multiple sources to deliver filtered, high-value information as part of the physician's workflow.
