ChartLogic, a a provider of EHR systems to physician practices, today announced ChartLogic 8, the latest version of its popular electronic health record. ChartLogic 8 will be offered on a software-as-a-service basis (SAAS), enabling medical groups to obtain one of the most advanced physician-oriented EHR systems on the market without having to purchase expensive hardware.
With SAAS, also known as “on-demand software,” the program is hosted on the vendor’s computers and accessed by users via the Internet. With SAAS, no IT staff is needed to maintain the system and the program is updated automatically.
“For smaller medical groups, running ChartLogic 8 with SAAS is a convenient, cost-effective option. They don’t need to invest in powerful servers and we will handle key HIPAA security requirements such as encryption and emergency data backup. This removes the need for back-up tapes in locked storage cabinets,” said Brad Melis, founder and executive vice president of ChartLogic.
In addition to the SAAS offering, ChartLogic 8 is fully compatible with ChartLogic 7 and includes all of its features. These include PrecisionVoice™ dictation technology and an easy-to-use patient portal. ChartLogic 8 provides a complete EHR suite that interfaces with more than 125 specialty medical practice management systems including the ChartLogic Practice Management System. These secure systems along with the company’s implementation and training programs are designed for ease of use by clinicians and office personnel while supporting improved patient care and safety.
