MedcomSoft Corporation (MSF) To Unveil MCDR; Its Revolutionary Clinical Data Repository For Communities


10/19/2005 5:12:43 PM

DALLAS, TX, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedcomSoft Inc. (TSX - MSF) announced today that it will unveil at the HIMSS 2005 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Dallas, Texas (February 14-17) a new generation of community based clinical data repositories that could revolutionize the way clinical data and Electronic Health Records are aggregated, stored and mined. Through automated and secure web transactions generated by different providers in a community, MedcomSoft Clinical Data Repository (MCDR) is capable of aggregating, in a completely unmanned fashion, the incremental pieces of a health record as they are generated. The data generated and transmitted by providers using MedcomSoft Record EMR Suite will be fully codified with the Medcin(R) point of care medical terminology, producing an unprecedented data repository. This technology will allow advanced data mining based on any combination of clinical data entries including symptoms, medical history, examinations, test results, conditions, therapies and outcomes. MedcomSoft believes that this new clinical data repository (patent pending) could finally enable healthcare organizations to track outcomes, disease evolution and population health leading to better prevention, disease management and surveillance.

While aggregating health records independently from each provider system, MedcomSoft Clinical Data Repository is capable of serving back the aggregated health record to those providers in that community with the appropriate security and privacy clearance.

MedcomSoft has recently released, and will be showcasing in Booth 2548 of the Exhibition Hall MedcomSoft Record 2.0, its latest Medical Office Automation Suite. This fully integrated Practice Management/Electronic Medical Record application produces an advanced electronic health record that is fully compatible with the Continuity of Care Record (CCR).

MedcomSoft will also be participating in the Ambulatory Care Showcase at HIMSS which will display interoperability using the Continuity of Care Record (CCR) within numerous settings: a patient's home, a small practice, a large clinic, and a diagnostic clinic. The attendees will be led through these sites as if in a normal medical situation so that they may view the interoperability between the sites. This showcase will demonstrate the value that interoperability can add to the ambulatory care setting and the vendors that are capable of supporting this evolving standard.

MedcomSoft Inc. designs, develops and markets cutting-edge software solutions to the healthcare industry. MedcomSoft has pioneered the use of codified point of care medical terminologies and intelligent pen-based data capture systems to create a new generation of electronic medical records (EMR). As a result of MedcomSoft innovations, physicians and managed care organizations can now securely build and exchange complete, structured and homogeneous electronic patient records. MedcomSoft applications are written with the latest Microsoft tools to run on the Windows platform (Windows 2000 & XP), operate with MS SQL Server 2000(TM), support MS Terminal Server and fully integrate with MS Office 2003, Exchange and Outlook(R). MedcomSoft applications are fully compatible with Tablet PCs and wireless technology.

These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may cause the actual events or results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements.
