Galen Healthcare Solutions has announced the release of VitalCenter, a business continuity solution for health care organizations that rely on the availability of their electronic health records to provide patient care.
Grosse Pointe, MI (PRWEB) 26, April 2009 -- Physicians need access to their patients' charts, even when the EHR is unavailable. VitalCenter delivers off-line electronic copies of patients' charts to PCs within the clinic, where they are viewed or printed when the EHR is not available. Whether the downtime is a result of a network outage, application or hardware failure, or any other cause, VitalCenter allows organizations relying on access to their electronic health record to continue functioning during periods of downtime.
"VitalCenter is the answer to the first question on everyone's mind when they move to a paperless practice," said Steve McQueen, CEO of Galen. "'How do I safely and effectively see patients if I can't get to my charts?' VitalCenter overcomes that obstacle and provides our clients with predictable encounter volumes, regardless of the circumstances."
Shutting down clinics early for maintenance is an inconvenience for patients and is also a missed opportunity for physicians. An upgrade to the server environment, network or EHR may require that the EHR be unavailable to providers. VitalCenter will continue to deliver crucial patient information to caregivers with no interruption in service.
