Saint John, Canada (PressExposure) May 21, 2009 -- Information technology research firm IDC Canada has named AnyWare Group's ROAM solution as one of 10 Canadian Healthcare solutions to watch. In its 10 Canadian Healthcare Solutions to Watch ( IDC #CA1TIW9 ) report, which was released yesterday, IDC profiles ten relatively small companies in Canada that offer solutions in the healthcare space that are positioned to make an impact in the market. The report provides insight into each solution, along with details about go-to-market strategies, partners, and customers.
"The healthcare industry is embarking on a transformation - from antiquated technologies and processes to innovative solutions that are all about managing efficiency and accessing large flows of people and information across systems and providers, to reduce costs and improve patient care," said Krista Napier, Analyst, Canadian ICT Innovation at IDC. "The companies in this study, including AnyWare Group, are well positioned to help change how healthcare is delivered, managed, and experienced in Canada. With the need for integration, improved efficiency, and access to information, hospitals stand to benefit from cost-effective, healthcare-specific, remote access solutions from a company such as AnyWare Group."
The IDC Canada report provides valuable information for other emerging companies in the Canadian technology marketplace, government organizations, and larger vendors and investors looking to identify partnership and investment opportunities.
According to Napier, "AnyWare Group was selected due to its success attracting customers across North America to date, its expertise and focus on remote solutions for healthcare, and its strategic alignment with key healthcare initiatives in Canada, including reducing wait times and improving physician efficiency."
AnyWare Group's ROAM platform enables clientless secure access to all healthcare applications and information from any PCs or Macs. Hospitals and healthcare jurisdictions are using ROAM to:
- Provide a single secure access point for Interoperable EHR Systems (iEHR) - Shorten hospital wait times - Deliver health information and services regardless of geography - Improve physician efficiency
"We have successfully used AnyWare Group's ROAM platform for the past 3 years to securely provide reports to community physicians and specialists, and provide secure remote access to the hospital's health information system, PACS and other applications," said Ed Norwich, IT Director of Cambridge Memorial Hospital. "AnyWare Group's expertise in healthcare and the flexibility of their ROAM product has also enabled us to securely deliver applications to regional users groups such as the regional transcription and dictation system. Additionally, we are able to turn up new applications and groups of users quickly by leveraging AnyWare's engineering services that are included in their managed service. Over the past few years, our input into product development and the close working relationship we have with AnyWare Group has helped evolve ROAM into what I believe is a unique solution for healthcare."
"We are pleased to be recognized as one of the ten Canadian healthcare solutions to watch," said Robert Lalonde, CEO, AnyWare Group. "This milestone reinforces our unique value to healthcare and recognizes the proven track record AnyWare Group has in this market. With hospitals across Canada and the United States using ROAM, our solution has a proven ability to securely provide information to healthcare workers when and where needed, thereby enabling these organizations to reach their goals without the technical or financial risks associated with alternative approaches."
