A Flexible, Scalable General Practice EHR Solution
VersaSuite’s flexible, scalable General Practice EHR is designed to accommodate the wide variety of medical issues addressed by general practitioners and is ideally suited to efficiently deliver optimal patient care. As the specialty that covers the greatest number of potential diagnoses, treatment plans, and outcomes, primary care presents a unique challenge for electronic clinical documentation. VersaSuite’s General Practice EHR solution is designed to succeed where many other EHR systems fail – in easily and seamlessly supporting a wide range of clinical content and seamless integration with the Enterprise Practice Management (EPM) module. The vast majority of EHR systems are “hard-coded” for one particular specialty, which means they lack flexibility and customizability. These two traits are crucial for any successful EHR implementation, and are especially important for primary care implementations. Flexibility and customizability have been the backbone of VersaSuite’s design philosophy for nearly two decades.
VersaSuite-eHR has been designed to accommodate the most rigorous demands of any clinic. Because of VersaSuite’s solid infrastructure, VersaSuite can support any number of specialties in a single installation across any number of locations, making VersaSuite the perfect choice for multi-specialty clinics, hospitals, and ASCs.
Through VersaSuite’s state-of-the-art document output system, VersaSuite creates referring provider letters in just one click that contain all of the information from an encounter. The referral letters don’t just copy information from the data-entry part of the application; they package the clinical data in a neat, organized, legible document. Furthermore, these referral letters are completely customizable, and can include not just textual data from the encounter, but a clinic’s logo and diagnostic images such as x-rays and MRIs. Physicians already using this feature absolutely love it, and have said that this feature alone saves them hours every week.
The ability to generate referral letters is just a single use of VersaSuite’s document output system. Not only can VersaSuite generate referring provider letters, but it can instantly generate an encounter summary that could be printed and given to the patient as they leave the office or hospital. And just like referral letters, encounter summaries are not limited to textual data; they can include graphs, tables, and images.
VersaSuite is developing a cutting-edge clinical decision support system to guide doctors through encounters. With decision support, physicians will always know that the computer is double-checking their work for them. VersaSuite’s breakthrough decision support engine also streamlines exams, clearing up valuable screen space and allowing for even faster data entry. VersaSuite provides not only clinical decision support, but also checks for: drug-drug, drug-allergy, and drug-disease interactions.
One of the most important features in an EHR is the ability to interface with diagnostic equipment such as x-rays, MRIs, and CAT scans. VersaSuite has already established interfaces with hundreds of diagnostic devices from a wide range of manufacturers. Because many of the interfaces are similar if not the same, VersaSuite can usually setup new interfaces by referencing its vast library of interfacing protocols and data exchanges tools.
It is widely expected that the future of all medical imaging will be stored in the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard. The DICOM standard is the only universal imaging standard and is receiving growing support from every major interest in medicine – physicians, administrators, lawyers, lawmakers, device manufacturers, and software developers like VersaSuite. VersaSuite is among a handful of companies that not only complies with the DICOM standard, but has its DICOM solution implemented in a large US public university setting. Moreover, VersaSuite is one of the select few companies that offer a DICOM-converter that can convert almost any type of image (jpeg, png, gif, bmp, etc) to the DICOM standard. VersaSuite’s DICOM converter (AKA modality capture) can save clinics and hospitals tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. Instead of buying new DICOM-compliant devices, clinics and hospitals can use VersaSuite’s DICOM converter with their existing non-DICOM-compliant hardware.
VersaSuite is among the most interoperable EHR solutions on the market today, and strictly adheres to all major interoperability standards including Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), Health Level 7 (HL7), and DICOM.
