NEW YORK - Nov 21, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that significant investments will be made to support Infor MediSuite, an integrated suite of hospital information solutions developed for the Canadian market that includes system integration, electronic health records, patient management applications, clinical department solutions, and public health and community care solutions. The investment is expected to almost double the research and development team working on these products to significantly enhance clinical functionality in the solution.
Product updates to Infor MediSuite are currently anticipated to include:
- Support for a physician environment with developments aimed at better integrating physicians to their healthcare organization and adapting to the specificities of a practice.
- Clinical workflow and automation enhancements aimed at improving the global efficiency of clinical processes of the healthcare organization and reducing systemic operating costs.
- The addition of protocols and care models designed to reduce practice variability, and better support quality of care.
- Better decision support to provide the system's user with relevant retrospective and real-time information.
Infor is also planning to offer increased services and a normalized maintenance lifecycle. With Infor MediSuite, organizations can use IT more strategically to promote better care and better connectivity, support multidisciplinary care users and access integrated patient information across care settings to help provide patients with more effective and continuous care. In addition, these efforts to enhance Infor MediSuite will also leverage Infor's competency centers including the new user experience and beauty as a competency for physicians. Current plans are to make future enhancements available through cloud or on-premise implementations, with improved business intelligence and decision support, Infor ION integration with clinical and business applications and global demo environment, performance testing and benchmarking.
"The healthcare market in Canada continues to evolve, so we're planning significant investments in the MediSuite solution because we believe that the approach to integrate physicians and clinicians with technology will help organizations focus more on providing exceptional patient care," said Steven Merten, senior director of development and product management, Healthcare, Infor.
