“While working on healthcare systems in leading hospitals within Metro Manila and Cebu, we received numerous requests from doctors for a system they can use for their private practice,” said Jerry Rapes, CEO of Exist. “They have seen how we use technology to help different departments manage hospital information. Medcurial is designed to do the same thing for doctors within the confines of their private clinics.” “We’ve built a secure and stable platform and infrastructure that ensure that clinic data remain private, safe and more importantly, always available,” he said. The company said that unlike traditional EMR systems installed in computers, doctors need only to login on the Web to access Medcurial. ?There is no need to install software and no special computer specification needed to run it. Regular software updates occur at scheduled intervals in order to ensure that Medcurial evolves with the healthcare practice and never become obsolete,? it said. One significant advantage of a cloud-based system like Medcurial is that it offers doctors the opportunity to improve services delivered to patients by sharing more accurate information across various health settings. According to Markets and Markets study released in July this year, the global use of cloud computing in healthcare will grow by 20.5 percent annually and will be worth $5.4 billion by 2017. “Doctors see their patients at different care venues that it doesn’t make sense to have an EMR system that can only be accessed within their clinics,” explained Willex Perez, product head for Medcurial. “Just imagine what will happen if for any reason you cannot go to your clinic and you need information badly because of an emergency situation that happens to your patient. Not only is it costly to repeat all laboratory tests, it causes delay in treatment and loss of time.” From mobile phones to laptops and even iPads, Medcurial will run on all these devices. Doctors can access their appointments schedule, view patient records as well as billing records whenever they need to, anywhere. “We designed Medcurial not just for the current physicians’ needs, but built it on a platform that can support an integrated healthcare system of the future for the country, where all health providers — doctors, clinics, hospitals and other care practitioners including the patient themselves contribute in finding the best care outcome,” said Perez. ]]>
