Saint John,, NY (PressExposure) April 29, 2009 -- With doctors spread across 4 rural counties, Memorial Medical Center of West Michigan has implemented AnyWare Group's ROAM (Role Oriented Access Management) as the clientless [http://www.anywaregroup.com/clientless] remote access platform to deliver their medical systems and applications, leading to more timely adherence to the hospitalâs âsign-offâ policy.
All hospitals depend on physicians and radiologists to promptly âsign-offâ on patient records â but it is challenging to encourage and sustain compliance when physicians and technology are spread over a wide rural area like Western Michigan. A clientless ROAM solution allows healthcare providers to remotely access internal hospital systems, check patient records and sign-off reports, from home or in a distant office, improving the effectiveness, and lifestyles, of physicians, administrators and IT staff.
âA high level of complexity can discourage consistent adherence to the âsign-offâ policy,â said Sue Luskin, IS Supervisor at MMCWM. âROAM is so intuitive, it's easy to use right away and our physicians and staff took to it immediately.â
Memorial Medical chose ROAM for remote access because the technology is clientless and AnyWare Group's engineering staff has deep experience in healthcare applications. The expected benefits of a clientless remote access solution were verified when Sue received an email from Lynn S. McCurdy, D.O., a radiologist stating:
âI just used ROAM to sign 28 reports (which were not transcribed yet when I left the hospital at 7:30 last night). It worked beautifully; in fact, much more smoothly than when I was editing and signing reports in house (perhaps because both I and the transcriptionist were busily accessing the list). Next time I won't stay late while the weather is deteriorating, knowing I can sign things from the safety of my home.â
âWe at AnyWare Group are excited to be working with Memorial Medical,â said Robert Lalonde, CEO of AnyWare Group Inc. âBy providing authorized physicians, clinicians and managers with a single clientless, secure remote access point to hospital systems and applications, ROAM is helping Memorial Medical improve the work life and efficiency of physicians and staff.â
