JRMC Extends the Life of Its EMR System with RasterMaster

JRMC’s Information Systems (IS) department maintains all the equipment and software within its facility. The center uses multiple applications for clinical documentation within all the areas of the hospital, and an electronic medical record system (EMR) which serves as the main documentation entry point. They were looking for viewing support on their EMR product since it plays a critical role in providing our clinical staff with electronic access to patient charts and other important data. JRMC began researching image viewers for the ability to open MO:DCA-formatted documents, specifically our MO:DCA images.

The RasterMaster SDK was one of the components that allowed us to extend the life of a sunset product, instead of purchasing a new EMR, which would cost us over a million dollars plus the expense and challenge of implementation and training.

Before adding RasterMaster’s viewing component to view an in-house patient chart, a clinician using JRMC’s Eclipsys CPOE system would have to go through 4-5 steps to access the external EMR to view patient history account. This updated system allows clinicians to reach a patient account and even print documents with a single click over the hospital’s wireless network.
