SOWSIA's Inpatient EHR Solution Gets '08 CCHIT Certification

SaaS company introduces browser based Electronic Health Record (EHR) for mass use

SAN FRANCISCO, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- SOWSIA Healthcare Solutions Inc.'s product Ondemand Healthcare uHPM, 7Plus, M1 is now a pre-market conditional CCHIT Certified(R) 08 Inpatient EHR. The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT(R)) made this announcement today.

SOWSIA Healthcare Solutions Inc., a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) healthcare IT company, has now also become the first SaaS company (one of only 3 vendors) to achieve the CCHIT 08 Inpatient Electronic Health Record (EHR) Certification. EHR Certification, currently being defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is one requirement for qualifying for the Federal Stimulus funding in FY2011.

Until now, hospitals wanting to purchase EHR's could either choose a proprietary client-server solution or a hosted ASP solution. SOWSIA provides a new choice of SaaS solutions that only need a browser to use healthcare applications. No hardware to purchase. No software to license. No upgrade costs. SOWSIA's EHR is based on a fixed monthly subscription fee that contrasts with the large upfront IT expenditure, lengthy implementation cycles, and ongoing high maintenance fees of traditional software.

Expanding on SaaS in healthcare, Sandeep Jain, MD, co-founder of SOWSIA, added, "SOWSIA's applications delivered on the Healthcare Operating System (HCOS) also allows hospitals to leverage their current investments in legacy systems so they could preserve their best of breed solutions and still be able to bridge the information gaps these antiquated solutions leave behind. We've always had IT within the hospitals walls. Yet, we see medical errors causing in excess of 98,000 deaths a year. SOWSIA's HCOS helps bridge process gaps amongst disparate solutions, integrates multiple applications and at the same time will be capable of seamlessly connecting information residing in hospital systems to available health information exchanges such as the emerging Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN). SOWSIA does this without the use of any middleware."

SOWSIA Enterprise Software Solutions are based on the paradigm of the network being the computer for patients, payers and health enterprises. SOWSIA guarantees a 100% available, HIPAA and SAS-70 Certified, highly secure, scalable and reliable network. SOWSIA's solutions meet stringent security requirements for Web access and sharing of Protected Health Information.

Arvind Jain, Founder and CEO of SOWSIA, believes that "Health IT ought to be an enabler of business, not a resource drain. In the current environment this becomes more important than ever before. Paying for IT procurement during times when the reimbursements are only going down is a serious challenge facing every Hospital CEO and CIO as they make decisions about purchasing complexly priced on-premise software. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provides hospitals with financial incentives for EHR procurement. However, in the long run, CFO's will face unsustainable IT budgets with licensing and maintenance fees running into millions of dollars because unlike SaaS, traditional software is costly to manage. For such discerning buyers, SaaS provides an option that leverages the benefits of cloud computing - this model is what makes SOWSIA's solutions an attractive option."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
