Since 1978, when Medicomp’s founder Peter Goltra set out to improve physicians’ access to relevant patient information and enable sharing of that information throughout the medical system, Medicomp has remained focused on the simple principle that information technology can be used to save lives and give caregivers what they need to care for the patient. Goltra’s solution to this challenge was the development of the MEDCIN® Engine, which is now in use in leading EHRs around the world.
Collaboration and work with physicians on staff at Cornell, Harvard and Johns Hopkins, along with other major medical centers, including the Department of Defense Military Health System, enables the Medicomp team to continuously expand the MEDCIN knowledge engine and to innovate new technologies that improve EHR systems and make them easy for doctors to use.
Today Quippe, Medicomp’s easy-to-use and learn documentation tool, is being added to legacy and new EHRs, to make it easy for doctors and caregivers to immediately access relevant information for individual patients while satisfying all documentation and coding requirements as a by-product of use. The MEDCIN Engine powers Quippe, providing users and the enterprise with structured data and decision-support tools. MEDCIN can be found in leading EHRs around the world.
