The Open Source Electronic Health Record Agent (OSEHRA), a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating innovation in EHR software has just announced that MedicaSoft, LLC has joined the OSEHRA community as a Corporate Member.
“The advancement of health IT through the use of open source best practices is a pressing challenge that will require many new software tools, skill sets, and organizational processes,” said Dr. Seong Ki Mun, OSEHRA CEO and President. “We look forward to partnering with MedicaSoft to accelerate innovation in health IT both in the U.S. and internationally.”
This follows the April 25, 2013 announcement by MedicaSoft that Mike O’Neill, former Senior Advisor at the Department of Veterans Affairs has joined the firm as their new CEO. O’Neill, an expert in the introduction of new technologies into care environments, joins MedicaSoft after three years with the VA.
At the VA, he was a member of the VA Center for Innovation founding team and led programs introducing technology innovations and business practices in healthcare and claims processing in telehealth and the VA’s Blue Button personal health record. He also spearheaded VA’s open source EHRs initiative and served on the OSEHRA board of Directors.
“Hospitals and clinicians often struggle to adapt information technology to achieve better results, lower costs, and accurately document care. The power and flexibility of open source software can help achieve those outcomes,” said O’Neill.
