“OpenVista builds on a robust system that was designed by clinicians for clinicians and has been used for many years throughout the nation's largest healthcare system, as well as in several other countries. The system's safety and dependability are time-tested, and it is now available for anyone at a very affordable cost.—Medsphere Chairman Kenneth W. Kizer, MD, MPH
OpenVista® from Medsphere is a portfolio of clinical support products and professional services that leverages the proven VistA electronic health record (EHR) system developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. VistA is widely credited with helping transform the VA into the nation's most efficient and clinically effective healthcare organization.
A responsible reapplication of the VA's $8.5 billion investment, OpenVista is the most fully commercialized VistA offspring. It was designed to provide hospitals around the country with an open-source EHR solution that they can deploy quickly and affordably, and use to achieve maximum quality, safety and efficiency benefits.
Medsphere's subscription-based pricing model enables hospital, clinic and integrated delivery network customers to pay for OpenVista from their operating budget with no upfront costs or back-end balloon payments. Expert implementation and other services facilitate fluid and rapid transition to a paperless clinical environment focusing on best practices and evidence-based medicine in six to nine months.
Medsphere also actively nurtures the Healthcare Open Source Ecosystem, a global community of customers, partners, developers and other online collaborators who drive OpenVista innovation and provide a parallel development and support structure.
