Medicomp Systems receives Frost & Sullivan’s 2017 Enabling Technology Leadership Award for innovation at the point of care.
Frost & Sullivan finds that Medicomp’s Quippe increases the efficiency of clinical documentation and enables physicians to see up to 30% more patients.
Award Purpose: Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has developed a pioneering technology that not only enhances current products, but also the development of new products and applications. It also recognizes the high market acceptance potential of the technology.
Industry Challenges: Meaningful Use (MU) incentive payments have pumped tens of billions of dollars into healthcare IT over the past six years. These incentives locked in the “legacy EHR” vendors and, at the same time, made clinical systems increasingly burdensome for providers at the point of care. Innovation stopped while everyone chased the MU money. The switch to value-based reimbursement and additional requirements for MACRA and MIPS will increase the burden on clinicians, further reducing usability. Now, with the realization that an EHR must provide structured clinical data to support artificial intelligence, machine learning, and analytics strategies, the industry is moving into a new phase where clinicians will be expected to make better use of data at the point of care to increase productivity and improve patient outcomes.
Report Findings: Medicomp’s Quippe optimizes EHRs for physicians at the point of care. The company, founded by Peter Goltra in 1978, partnered with clinical experts to co-design a solution that mirrors the way that physicians think and work. Quippe helps physicians to eliminate clinical noise and quickly make sense of all relevant patient data. It enables quicker, more accurate clinical documentation. Quippe leverages Medicomp’s powerful MEDCIN® Knowledge Engine to provide tools for efficient use of clinical data at the point of care. The purpose-built platform seamlessly integrates into existing clinical workflows and can be added to any EHR or HIS systems to enable elegant, clinical documentation that meets compliance and reporting requirements.
Frost Analyst Commentary: “Medicomp has created a truly innovative application that proves that technology can empower physicians at the point of care, rather than act as a roadblock. Quippe’s user-friendly, customizable suite of solutions provides clinicians with the right clinical information at the right time, and simplifies the clinical documentation process. We were excited by Quippe because it can transform the physician experience at the point of care, replacing frustration with satisfaction, and helping them to do what matters most—deliver the highest-quality, most efficient patient care,” said Frost & Sullivan Principal Industry Analyst Victor Camlek.
Report Conclusion: Medicomp Systems is a strong, established company which provides a powerful knowledge engine that resolves challenges facing clinicians on a daily basis because it is designed to think and work like a physician. The company has achieved success in the United States and global markets because of its unwavering commitment to delivering on its mission of supporting both physicians and patients at the point of care. The company’s commitment to constant innovation sets it up for continued success.
