Essen/Steyr, 10 November 2006
Atos Origin, a leading international IT services company, and Systema, the market leader for hospital information systems in Austria, have entered into a cooperation agreement to improve workflows management in German hospitals through the implementation of a medical workflow solution based on the “medical process assistant” (mpa) and mySAP for healthcare. Through this solution, hospitals and clinic associations will benefit from a quicker access to patient information; plan treatment paths more efficiently ; and integrate technical applications and accounting systems more easily. Today, more than 15,000 users are already benefiting from this solution in Austrian hospitals.
"In Systema and their mpa solution, we have found a competent partner for our activities in the healthcare sector. Systema offers a highly-integrated and user friendly solution, based on a modern software architecture for mySAP Healthcare, and manages all medical treatment processes with the required flexibility" stated Frank Bagdahn, Sales Director Public & Healthcare at Atos Origin in Germany. "Atos Origin is a partner for the hospitals in Germany for implementation projects as well as for IT support and services. The Group employs dedicated consultants with long-term experience in the healthcare sector."
To date, mpa software has primarily been used in Austrian clinics to improve workflow management, appointment planning, patient administration and clinical documentation. The medical process assistant can be easily integrated into German hospitals' existing SAP systems.
Atos Origin and Systema's cooperation will be presented at this year's MEDICA in Düsseldorf, the International Trade Fair dedicated to the medical sector from 15-18 November 2006. Present on Booth G06 - Hall 15, both companies will demonstrate the support mpa can provide in terms of optimal planning, treatments management and documentation while guaranteeing process quality. A live demo will be showcased to visitors to experience the seamless integration of mpa into mySAP for Healthcare.
