Electronic Medical Records
Choosing the right electronic medical record system is a vital decision that will impact the growth and sustainability of your company. The wrong choice can create years of frustration and financial stress. Ensure that you are completely informed by asking yourself these important questions before making a final decision:
Can the software be customizable?
If you are leaning towards using an off-the-shelf solution, make sure you research the customization options. In many cases off-the-shelf solutions will meet the majority of your needs, but they often fall short in areas that are crucial to your business. If the software provider is not willing or able to customize their system to integrate with your system, you could be stuck with software that creates more work rather than making the job simpler and easier.
One of the biggest advantages to creating a custom solution is that it will fit your specific requirements. You do not have to adjust your practice to fit another company’s vision of how your business should be run. You do not need to work with multiple software packages to meet business needs. You do not need to worry about costly duplication of work. By working with SageKey, you can rest assured that your software is exactly what you need.

Dialysis Data Manager
Electronic Medical Records system to manage data from kidney dialysis machines.
Amgen Pharmaceutical hired SageKey to develop a full Electronic Medical Records system to manage patient data within Dialysis Clinics. This software system contains all of the patient records and replaces the traditional patient chart. As dialysis patients need to come in to the clinic 3 times a week for a 4 hour appointment, paper records often grow to a file many feet thick.
The software we developed collects data directly from the dialysis machine and downloads patient laboratory results electronically. A rich set of graphing and reporting tools were added for physicians to view their patients’ health over time. The software was developed to FDA medical device standards and passed an independant audit for the applicable FDA standards for patient privacy, medical devices and electronic signatures.
Hear what they think
SageKey is the best software company I have worked with in a 15 year career. What distinguishes SageKey from similar software organizations is the tight bonds they build between sponsors and customers alike. Throughout my time managing this program from a sponsor point of view, SageKey was an extension of our internal team – they shared our vision and goals. And in turn, we became a better organization by learning from SageKey’s visions and goals of customer service, quality products, trust, respect and incredible can-do attitude.
I am always available to discuss my experience with SageKey.
