A detailed description of our experience with the EHR system. Such systems are in use in more than 94% of Hospitals Worldwide
EHR goes back to origins in the 1970s when The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has launched the Decentralized Hospital Computer Program (DHCP). Prototypes of similar systems were developed and earlier. Still, only this system has received access to federal resources, which allowed it to grow and evolve. It was a massive step for EHR system development and healthcare software.
There are many solutions for such software in the US market, as well as companies providing such services as medical app development.
However, the client (here and after we will call it Health Care Solutions or HCS) hired LightClix , which has been working on innovations in the Health Care sector for several years in collaboration with doctors and specialists from the Health Care sector.
The HCS hypothesis was that if the data is visualized, doctors will interact faster with the program and all software opportunities.
During the research, HCS found that many modern EHR systems are not entirely focused on doctors’ needs. In turn, this may prevent doctors from providing better care for patients, and in cases when it comes to an emergency, saving many lives.
