Overview

Our client, a healthcare provider based in New Jersey, is seeking to expand their services beyond their current clinic location. With a vision to increase their presence across multiple cities, they aim to offer a wide range of multispecialty services.

Solution

As a software development company with experience in the healthcare industry, we have provided a custom-built EHR solution that addresses their specific challenges and leverages the latest technologies. Here's how Thinkitive can address the limitations of the current system:

    1. Leveraging Thinkitive's Cloud-based EHR Platform:

We have developed a cloud-based EHR system specifically designed for scalability. This eliminates the need for the client to manage hardware infrastructure and allows elastic scaling to accommodate growth in clinics, doctors, and patients across New Jersey and beyond.

    2. Microservices Architecture:

We have designed the EHR system using a microservices architecture, where each functional module (e.g., patient records, appointments, billing) operates independently as a separate service. This architecture promotes scalability by enabling individual components to be scaled independently, allowing the system to handle increased workload efficiently.

    3. Configurable Workflows with Thinkitive's Development Tools:

Our technical experts have developed a user-friendly interface within the EHR system that allows for the customization of workflows. This empowers the client to tailor workflows for different departments, specialties (e.g., cardiology, pediatrics), and clinic locations based on their specific needs.

    4. HIPAA Compliance with Thinkitive's Development Process:

Thinkitive's development process ensures the new EHR system adheres to HIPAA regulations. This includes features like secure data encryption, audit trails, and role-based access control. Additionally, we have Integrated regulatory compliance modules into the EHR system to facilitate compliance with evolving healthcare regulations and standards, such as HIPAA, GDPR, and HITECH. These modules should provide built-in controls, templates, and workflows designed to streamline compliance efforts and ensure that the EHR system meets regulatory requirements.

Additional Considerations

  • Interoperability:

    We designed the EHR system to be interoperable with other healthcare IT systems. This allows for seamless data exchange with labs, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers, improving care coordination.

  • Ongoing Support:

    We are providing ongoing technical support to the client after system implementation. This ensures continued system functionality, timely issue resolution, and adaptation to future needs.

Value Delivered

  • Eliminates Hardware Cost & Management:

    By eliminating the need for on-premise hardware management, the client has saved 20-30% on IT infrastructure costs.

  • Improved Accessibility:

    With cloud-based infrastructure, the EHR system can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, providing flexibility and convenience for healthcare professionals and patients alike.

  • Increased Staff Productivity:

    Configurable workflows tailored to specific needs can streamline processes and reduce administrative tasks, potentially leading to a 20% increase in staff productivity.

  • Regulatory Compliance:

    Thinkitive's development process ensures that the EHR system adheres to HIPAA, GDPR, and HITECH regulations, protecting patient data privacy and security.
