EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems, Inc. introduces Fog Computing Architecture at AAO 2018
BONITA SPRINGS, Fla., Oct. 25, 2018 — EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems, Inc. (EyeMD EMR), a leading provider of Electronic Medical Records software designed specifically for ophthalmologists, announced today the debut of EyeMD EMR 2.0 at the 2018 American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.
“EyeMD EMR 2.0 is the result of years of research and development,” says Abdiel Marin, the CEO of EyeMD EMR. “Our current EMR product has an excellent reputation in the space, but we never stand still. We analyzed all of the user feedback we have collected over the years and used that feedback to greatly enhance the look, performance, usability, and feature set of EyeMD EMR. What we are most excited about is the architecture it was built on.” The company built its newest release on a Fog Computing Architecture—an emerging technology that they believe “will permanently disrupt the market.”
Traditional EMR systems are either based on a Client/Server or Cloud/Browser-Based architecture. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. “Practices often have a hard time discerning which type of platform is right for them,” says Gus Savloff, VP of Sales & Business Development at EyeMD EMR. “They are forced to choose between 2 radically different types of systems that they may not fully understand. Fog Computing merges the benefits of both types of systems in a single platform that is designed to adapt to the changing needs of ophthalmic practices.” He goes on to say, “It settles the debate over which platform is a better fit for ophthalmic practices and takes the fear out of making an architectural decision that will remain for the life of the practice.”
“EyeMD EMR 2.0’s usability enhancements will result in dramatically increased productivity and user satisfaction. The product looks great too!” says Blake Dorion, EMR Product Manager at EyeMD EMR. “EMR’s have long promised to enhance clinical outcomes, but research shows that they have largely failed to deliver. The new release is the next milestone of our product roadmap, but it is only the beginning. It will serve as the foundation for future versions that are already planned to incorporate technological innovations that will change ophthalmic care as we know it.”
The Bonita Springs, Fla.-based EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems is already one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., earning a spot on the coveted Inc. 5000 list of companies three years in a row. “We believe the release of the new version will continue to sustain our hyper-growth for years to come,” says Mr. Marin.
