iMDsoft presents unique data management capabilities for ICUs

iMDsoft® is committed to providing clinical information systems that ensure the best possible intensive care. MetaVision® for critical care is built to deliver results in areas of the hospital with the highest cost, morbidity, mortality and revenue. With iMDsoft’s sophisticated software, hospitals can quickly create significant value by cutting costs, capturing revenue, enforcing high-impact protocols at the point of care and improving clinical outcomes. The solution will be presented at the International Symposium on Intensive Care Emergency Medicine in Brussels, Belgium, March 18 – 21.

With budget constraints, staff shortages, growing administrative overheads and increasing regulation, providing the best possible care to high-risk patients is a challenge. Research proves that MetaVision helps hospitals meet this challenge, with ICU mortality reduced by 30%, reimbursement increased by hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, and a decrease of more than 90 minutes per shift in time spent on administrative tasks. With a successful track record of regional projects worldwide, MetaVision is increasingly becoming the vendor of choice for governments and hospital chains. The system’s unique architecture enables efficient software deployments across multiple sites, promoting uniformity and enforcing clinical best practices and compliance.

The ICU is a complex, data-rich setting with unique and detailed workflows. MetaVision is designed for complex critical care environments, with the deep level of granularity required by clinicians. The system generates comprehensive, accurate, and actionable electronic medical records, offering minute-by-minute patient information collection and display. Its dynamic patient-centric information repository and decision support options promote the delivery of best practices, protocols, and regulatory requirements. MetaVision interoperates seamlessly with all standard medical devices and hospital information systems.

Hospital-wide EMRs typically have difficulty accommodating individual requirements due to their “one size fits all” approach, and force hospitals to accept pre-determined workflows or purchase expensive professional services in order to customize their solution. MetaVision offers flexibility for critical care departments while supporting a high level of hospital-wide standardization. This adaptability decreases total cost of ownership: clinical leaders can quickly and easily make modifications that support changing regulations and clinical needs without any development or involvement from iMDsoft.

“Our critical care expertise and experience make MetaVision the best choice for delivering results in the ICU,” said Mike Myers, CEO of iMDsoft. “We are gratified to have so many of our customers reporting clinical, financial and operational improvements as a result of using MetaVision.”
