PALM DESERT, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Demo 08 -- Today, at DEMO 08, Acesis Inc. held its inaugural public launch of Acesis Point-of-Care(TM), a revolutionary on-demand electronic health record software solution. Acesis Point-of-Care simplifies the complexity of medical data capture for healthcare professionals by providing a secure, intuitive data capture system with structured medical vocabularies for reporting and analysis.
"Acesis Point-of-Care is a striking example of world-class innovation in a space mired by legacy software and unmet customer needs," said Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO conferences. "Healthcare providers need a leap forward in health information technology that works for both the physician and the patient. Acesis Point-of-Care's mix of ease-of-use, user-generated content and structured data in a healthcare context is that ground-breaking leap forward."
"Healthcare providers have become increasingly frustrated with health IT solutions available in the marketplace today, and many have deferred the decision to purchase an automated solution, still opting to use pen and paper," said Kevin Chesney, founder and CEO of Acesis. "We addressed this challenge by inventing an entirely new document approach organized around the way physicians work and think."
With a new and powerful document approach, medical professionals gain the same ease-of-use and power that spreadsheets provide to financial professionals and presentation software provides to sales professionals. Acesis Point-of-Care differs from electronic health record systems in the market today that use fixed database screens or snippets of text to create an encounter note. Acesis's forms dynamically expand based on prior responses, helping physicians focus on appropriate lines of clinical inquiry. Standardized medical vocabularies provide structure to the physician's clinical observations enabling sophisticated analysis and interoperability, and therefore improved quality of care.
Dr. John A. Isch, an Indiana-based surgeon, said, "I'm amazed at how quickly we could create custom surgical post-operation templates. Our surgical group has been waiting for a highly usable and affordable solution that can efficiently replace pen and paper, and now that we've found it, we're aggressively trialing it in the clinical setting to validate its enormous potential."
Acesis Point-of-Care is built with Adobe(R) AIR(TM), Adobe Flex(TM) 3, and Adobe LiveCycle(R) Data Services(TM). Adobe AIR -- a cross-operating system application runtime that enables powerful rich Internet applications (RIAs) for the desktop -- was showcased by Adobe at DEMO 07.
Michele Turner, vice president of product marketing and product management at Adobe, notes, "It's rewarding to see how Acesis has leveraged the Adobe technology platform for RIAs to create a truly innovative health record system -- it validates the combined power of Adobe AIR, Adobe Flex, and Adobe LiveCycle for mission-critical enterprise applications."
Acesis Point-of-Care has been carefully designed with input from practicing physicians to solve the problems of effective and efficient data capture at the point of care.
Founded in 2006 by CEO Kevin Chesney, Acesis is a leading innovator of clinical software that empowers physicians and patients, improving both efficiency and quality of care. Acesis was a finalist for the prestigious 2007 Red Herring 100, which recognizes the 100 Most Promising Companies Driving the Future of Technology. Acesis was also presented with an 'Honorable Mention' in the Enterprise category at the Adobe 2007 Max Awards. By fusing expertise in healthcare management and Internet-based enterprise software, the Acesis team is solving the heart of the problem with electronic health records: fast, efficient data capture at the point of care.
