Why does it make real good sense for us to push patient health information through a secure Web application as opposed to sending or faxing charts? Obviously there are cost reduction reasons for this. And with the advent of new electronic health records, more and more information is being stored digitally by healthcare organizations. There's a great opportunity to take advantage of this in order to store and move electronic health records and medical review cases through the system in a digital format.
We believe that our PeerPoint software will enhance this process and that Allmed will emerge as the leader in independent review software for Independent Review Organizations. Why is this? We've been spending the last year working on a customized and highly optimized, Web-based work flow application that mimics the way we work today. Effectively our PeerPoint software will collapse the myriad of client server software programs that we currently use in our office into a single fully integrated solution for your independent medical reviews.
We expect to launch this application in the next couple of months and are confident that our clients will see immediate benefits like being able to swiftly and securely transact business with us.
