Learn how developers all over the world have successfully developed and deployed applications using TigerLogic's Omnis Rapid Application Development platform.
Doctor's office solution for Mac, iPhone and iPad provides developer with phenomenal growth
Due to the continuous medical and technical innovations, as well as demographic changes, the health care sector in most industrialized countries is facing dramatic changes and increasing requirements from all sides. Consequently, doctor’s offices and private hospitals need information management systems that can quickly adapt to changing requirements, and can integrate the latest technologies and medical practices. One solution that meets these requirements is “siMed”, created with Omnis Studio by amétiq AG based in Switzerland, which has over 1,000 installations in Switzerland and has provided the developer with year-on-year growth of 20% to 30%.
siMed is a flexible and customizable information management system for doctor’s offices and medical centers that includes all the functions needed for a medical practice including client details management, billing, debtor and collection management, multi-dimensional medical history including medical picture archive (PACS), fully integrated radiology solution including automatic billing, integrated process and quality management, financial accounting, as well as human resources. siMed supports Mac OSX and iOS and is available in German, French, and Italian.
Since siMed was created using Omnis Studio it was reasonably quick and easy for amétiq to add a web module “siMedWeb” to the existing application, which provides users with direct and secure access via the web, iPhone or iPad. Whether on a home visit, in a large office, during an operation in a hospital or during out-of-office hours, using siMedWeb users have all medical records and practice data at their fingertips at any time. Patients can use this add-on module as well, for example, to fill in their registration form, book appointments, or examine medical reports. This way siMedWeb can increase both the efficiency and ease-of-use for all doctors and patients alike.
“The entire solution has been developed in Omnis Studio which enables us to provide our customers continuously with innovations and so to sustain our market position,“ explains Philip T. Ruser, founder of amétiq. “Omnis allows us to focus on the functional requirements of our customers rather than on technical problems. Therefore we can offer a very feature-rich, innovative and user-friendly solution. Reacting to the fast changing legal requirements in the healthcare sector and achieving a fast time-to-market are also very important for us. Omnis Studio allows us to offer a secure and high quality solution that meets the high demands of the public health sector.”
About amétiq: amétiq AG (l’art de la médecine et de l’informatique) based in Pfäffikon in Switzerland evolved in 2003 from a management buy-out of Medical Systems who created administration systems for doctor’s offices since 1991. Due to numerous reforms in healthcare, including the introduction in Switzerland of TARMED and electronic billing, together with the requirement for electronic medical records, a complete re-development of the existing application became necessary, evolving into siMed today. The company is also strongly committed to being socially responsible by donating 10% of all profits to people in need, especially to charity projects for children and teenagers in Switzerland and foreign countries.
