Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Allscripts
Healthcare Solutions, Inc., is a leading medical software and information
publishing company whose mission is improving health outcomes by delivering
customized electronic health information to physicians and their patients.
Backlash against managed care and a dramatic rise
in health consumerism have served to highlight a fundamental dilemma for
health care. As competitive health care organizations are recognizing the
fundamental importance of a strong, collaborative relationship between
patients and physicians, our nation's health providers are overwhelmed
with administrative work, have less time to spend with patients, and are
experiencing a worrisome reduction in job satisfaction.
Medifor's solution is to harness affordable,
easy-to-implement information technologies that help reduce physician
workload, enhance the quality of treatment decisions, empower the provider
as an educator, and help make patients full, collaborative partners in
their own care.
Right, Just-in-Time Information®
||Medifor was founded by primary
care physicians who understand the practical everyday needs of health
care providers. Our foundation product is called the
PATIENT ED® system. Unlike most other clinical software,
the PATIENT ED® system helps the physician help the patient,
rather than just "treat the chart." Our system is unique
in that the provider is rewarded for taking a little time to better
educate patients by helping the physician manage medications, follow
treatment guidelines, and reduce charting chores.
is also a leading publisher of
clinical CD-ROMs. Some of our titles include multi-year archives of
The New England Journal of Medicine, Annals of Internal Medicine,
Pediatrics, and American Family Physician, as well as the
17th edition of the Merck Manual. Medifor also publishes patient education
and continuing education titles from the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Patient Direct, a new feature that
allows a provider to create personal patient Web pages and patient-provider
messaging, gives patients acces to over 1800 Web links for further information
on their medical condition. Combined with the power of the PATIENT ED®
system, Patient Direct may
just become the 21st century equivalent of the house call!
