Medsphere rolls out cloud-based OpenVista EHR

Medsphere Systems Corp., a health IT solutions provider, developed a cloud-based version of its acute and inpatient behavioral health EHR.

With this move to the cloud, the OpenVista EHR — which is based off of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' VistA EHR system — is accessible from most operating system platforms, including Windows, Linux and MacOS. Cloud usage also saves expenses related to on-site servers and data centers.

"The future of healthcare IT is in cloud-based applications and [software-as-a-service] models that give clinicians, staff and patients the ability to access relevant data and functionality from anywhere," said Irv Lichtenwald, CEO of Medsphere. "We're very excited to give our existing and new clients cloud-based options now, which will save them both the expense and headache of having to implement and maintain hardware on-site."
