Hospitals and Medical Practitioners face a number of challenges above and beyond simply providing excellent medical care. For example, government and insurance regulations such as HIPAA require them to protect the confidentially and security of patient information. To control costs, practices need to operate more efficiently and automate everything from patient scheduling and billing to prescription and EMR (Electronic Medical Record) management. However, EMR and business process solutions can be costly and complex to implement both for large physician groups and especially for small practices that don't have the financial and technical resources to manage their own IT infrastructure.
From a technology standpoint, data is the key behind Healthcare applications including Practice Management Solutions, Electronic Medical Records (EMR) / Electronic Health Records (EHR), Monitoring Equipment, and Digital Imaging Systems that help doctors deliver better medical care. As the rate of adoption for EMR solutions accelerates and amount of patient health data being processed from medical equipment and devices soars, these solutions require a high-performance transactional database for processing patient information.
MySQL provides a cost-effective and powerful data repository used by many of the leading healthcare solution providers including eClinicalWorks and MacPractice. MySQL Enterprise Edition provides healthcare providers with the following benefits:
