Medsphere Systems Corporation Key Developments

Medsphere Systems Corporation Introduces OpenVista® Population Health

Medsphere Systems Corporation introduced OpenVista® Population Health, a Windows-based solution that gives clinicians much greater flexibility in how they provide care for both individual patients and broader patient populations. The addition of OpenVista Population Health is worth noting particularly because it serves as an example of how development happens in the VistA community. VistA enhancements are coming from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Indian Health Service (IHS) and numerous sources outside the federal government. To the benefit of the company clients and the entire VistA community, including VA and IHS, all that functionality can be folded back into OpenVista and other versions for much, much less than the cost of internal development. This application validates the cost savings of Medsphere's community development model. OpenVista Population Health enables breadth of information by giving clinicians the ability to create multiple panels for patients with common characteristics, i.e., age, diagnosis, community, etc. When information depth is required, clinicians can also use Population Health to see a complete view of patient conditions. OpenVista Population Health retrieves key patient information from various components of the OpenVista database and brings it together under a single, user-friendly interface. The solution provides coordinated views of traditional healthcare information from community, population and public health perspectives via core functions: Identify and manage different patient populations with shared characteristics; Integrate the view of patient conditions and minimize siloed care management; Provide an intuitive interface with the diverse patient data elements in the OpenVista database; Facilitate the review of clinical quality measures to enable improved healthcare delivery. The OpenVista Population Health tool was originally developed as a Population Management component in the IHS's Resource and Patient Management Solution (RPMS), a comprehensive EHR for acute and ambulatory environments based on the much lauded VistA system created by the VA. A Medsphere client, the IHS made Population Management available outside the agency, enabling inclusion in OpenVista.
