MITEM Releases 2.0 Version of the Blue Iris Expansion Pack

New features such as electronic signature capabilities and performance enhancements enable physicians to create, store and manage clinical documentation

MENLO PARK, CA – February 9, 2005 - MITEM Corporation, a developer of integration software solutions and clinical applications for health care, today announced the release of the Blue Iris MD Expansion Pack 2.0. The MD Expansion Pack is designed for use by physicians in a hospital setting who access patient data to create, manage and electronically sign clinical documentation. The MD Expansion Pack presents patient data in an electronic progress note format.

A significant feature of the MD Expansion Pack 2.0 release is the ability to retrieve a comprehensive patient history from MEDITECH MAGIC. Now, physicians can retrieve, via a rich internet application, lab orders, medications, nursing notes, consultation reports and admission and discharge summaries from any or all previous hospital visits. With just a few mouse clicks, wide-ranging historical patient data can be viewed and placed into a current progress note, giving the attending physician a more in-depth view of a patient's medical record. Physicians consider the patient history retrieval feature an important addition to the MD Expansion Pack's 24 hour data range view because it enables them to make better medical decisions at the point of care.

This release also provides physicians with advanced exam template creation features within the electronic progress note. Physical exam templates can now be categorized into logical groupings, enabling physicians to create templates for certain types of diseases such as pneumonia or for particular cardiac conditions. In addition, the MD Expansion Pack 2.0 allows providers to set a preference to automatically pull forward information from past progress notes into the current one.

Andy Nelson , director of products for MITEM, states, “The Blue Iris 2.0 MD Expansion Pack enables an inpatient physician to efficiently create, manage and electronically sign clinical documentation in MEDITECH MAGIC through a single, easy-to-use, web-based interface. We have also added new performance enhancements in this release that makes accessing patient data in MEDITECH MAGIC faster.”

All Blue Iris applications and solutions run on The Blue Iris Core - a powerful and time-tested integration platform that provides real time, bidirectional integration with MEDITECH MAGIC applications and other hospital systems. The Blue Iris Core technology non-invasively integrates with MAGIC – this means that integration occurs via the data terminal stream; therefore, all Blue Iris applications and solutions retain and capture MAGIC's native business rules, logic, prompts and security.
