Manila hospital implements cloud-based EHR
April 18, 2012 in Medical Technology
OffSiteCare Resources (OSCR) recently implemented HarmoniMD, its cloud-based EHR, in Mary Johnston Hospital in Manila, Philippines. The implementation follows installations in Haiti and the Congo, where OSCR helped open a four-bed ICU in Kolweizi, central Congo.
“Our implementation in Mary Johnston Hospital demonstrates that HarmoniMD can be readily implemented in hospitals with limited IT support and proves the value of a cloud-based system that is intuitive and easy to use,” said Nick Smith, CTO of OSCR.
“Unlike almost every other EHR system, we built HarmoniMD from the ground up with the latest cloud technologies so we are able to leapfrog over legacy server-based applications,” he added. “This makes it ideal for hospitals like Mary Johnston, which is in one of the poor parts of Manila.”
Under the leadership of James Gude, MD, OSCR provides telemedicine services to seven hospitals locally. OSCR has also provided medical consultations to the Congo using the iPad for telemedicine consults.
