You may hear a bit on this blog about Web 2.0 and software as a service, here's one electronic medical records company taking the product to the next level...software as a service..from the cloud...BD
LightEdge Solutions, a leading provider of managed IT services, today announced that Misys Healthcare has selected LightEdge’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) hosting capabilities for Misys MyWay™, a new electronic medical record (EMR) application. This new offering and its SaaS delivery model will allow Misys to extend its reach to small ambulatory practices, a group that has yet to adopt electronic medical records in a significant way. Misys, a market leader in healthcare IT, currently offers comprehensive solutions for the ambulatory healthcare market.
To ensure that both the Misys MyWay application and the sensitive patient medical data it contains are highly available, the LightEdge team has designed the solution with a secure, redundant platform in an alternate data center location. Data will be continually synchronized between the two systems allowing it to automatically failover to the alternate facility if the primary platform is unavailable. “This partnership with Misys reinforces the trend that we’re seeing in nearly every industry,” said Jim Masterson, chairman and CEO of LightEdge Solutions. “As the demands for IT and IT services grow, businesses are coming to the conclusion that they can streamline their organization by out-tasking the IT functions that aren’t part of their core business.”
