MedcomSoft, eQHIP Create EMR Alliance in Hawaii

April 18, 2008 – MedcomSoft Inc. recently said it has entered into a formal agreement and strategic alliance with eQuality Healthcare Information for Physicians LLC, (eQHIP) to deploy the MedcomSoft Record electronic medical record (EMR) throughout Hawaii.

eQHIP is a subsidiary of the Hawaii Independent Physician’s Association, Hawaii’s largest statewide independent physician association with more than 750 physicians. eQHIP is an active participant in the Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) HI-IQ program, an EMR adoption subsidy program. HMSA recently announced it would provide $20 million in grants for physicians to install EMR technologies in their practices. Under the initiative, 1,000 Hawaii physicians will each be eligible to receive up to $20,000 towards a new EMR system. Under the MedcomSoft Agreement, eQHIP and MedcomSoft will make a joint proposal for the purpose of accessing these HMSA subsidies. Additionally, MedcomSoft has agreed to supply eQHIP with up to 250 MedcomSoft Record licenses over the next 18 months. eQHIP will also provide the implementation, training and support services to its members.

MedcomSoft said it pioneered the use of numerically codified point-of-care clinical terminologies to create a new generation of highly interoperable EMRs, to enhance disease surveillance and accelerate clinical research. MedcomSoft is the recipient of the “Best of KLAS” award in 2007 year-end report in the Ambulatory EMR 1-5 Physicians category. In addition, a MedcomSoft practice was recently awarded the prestigious 2007 HIMSS Davies Award.
