MEDISTAR banking on specialist doctor solutions and new areas of service provision

Hannover, (PresseBox) - MEDISTAR Praxiscomputer GmbH, which forms part of CompuGROUP and has set itself the objective of using intelligent software to deliver 15% more efficiency within the healthcare system, currently enjoys the greatest degree of coverage of any company operating within the branch. The 23 specialist doctor solutions MEDISTAR is able to offer makes it a pioneer on the market. These specialist solutions have been developed by general practitioners and automate the treatment documentation processes which take place within surgeries. Specialist doctor developer meetings are held on an annual basis in order to enable a constructive exchange of information to take place between the doctors themselves and to enhance the solutions. The last such meeting took place in June 2009.

This year's conference of MEDISTAR specialist doctor developers was held in Kiel. This meeting is crucial to the company's success as well as being a highly significant event for the developers themselves. The conference serves as a forum for the gathering and exchange of ideas and visions, all of which then generate ongoing benefits for the further development of the software and for its users. The use of specialist doctor solutions enables full standard diagnoses to be identified, documented and ICD-coded within a few stages of work. Time savings and reductions in workload become effective as soon as the system is deployed. 23 solutions have thus far been developed for the respective specialisms. Nine are already in the programming pipeline. MEDISTAR Managing Director Sebastian Ledeboer explains the benefits. "Our specialist medical software solutions have already become indispensable for a majority of our users. These software solutions automate and enhance workflow in such an effective manner that doctors are able to give their full attention to patients even when carrying out documentation procedures. We live in times where customer satisfaction is accorded the very highest degree of priority, and the healthcare system is no exception in this regard. The aim is to provide all MEDISTAR users with the opportunity to structure their working day smoothly and in a patient oriented manner. To this end, we are continuing to work on further specialist solutions. The team-based meetings we stage often give rise to new solutions or to ideas on how existing solutions may be enhanced. They constitute a forum where ideas and accumulated know-how are brought together to generate innovation."

The specialist doctors are also working on the development of new areas of service provision, such as online training or seminars and training programmes which take place within the surgeries. Such events enable the specialist developers to provide a detailed explanation of how the system functions and also provides a channel whereby suggestions for improvements and new proposals can be directly passed on to the developers at a local level. Many high-quality applications have been integrated into the solutions via this route.
