Use OpenVista to increase revenue.

Adoption of a complete health IT solution, including closed-loop order management and results reporting that makes improvement possible, is the first step toward clinical transformation. And Medsphere’s focused and rapid—six to nine months—implementation process gets the OpenVista EHR solution into a hospital production environment quickly, setting the stage for accelerated universal adoption by clinicians and staff.

OpenVista is familiar.

Approximately 65 percent of all physicians who trained in the U.S. since the mid-1990s have rotated through a Veterans Affairs hospital and used the VA's VistA EHR from which OpenVista is derived. As a result, virtually every hospital in America has a core of physicians who are familiar with OpenVista in its original incarnation. These VistA-savvy physicians are inclined to share on-the-job expertise and serve as a ready source of system knowledge, thus shortening the adoption window.

OpenVista is adoptable.

As the products of intensive collaboration between developer and clinician, VistA and OpenVista were designed with adoptability in mind. Both solutions are, quite simply, proven highly adoptable by thousands of clinicians across hundreds of VA and private healthcare facilities. Users find VistA much more adoptable than other systems primarily because it gives them “the ability to perform tasks in a ‘straightforward’ manner,” according to a 2001 report in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association that compared VistA system with a proprietary alternative in use at New York’s Mt. Sinai Hospital.
