Iatric Systems (Boxford, Massachusetts), a provider of software and interface solutions for the healthcare industry, has established a new division dedicated to strategic integration and interface solutions for the healthcare information systems (HIS) market.
The company said its Integration and Interface Services Division will partner with hospitals to help engineer and integrate cost-effective solutions within the entire HIS enterprise.
James Lawson will head the newly expanded division, bringing more than 14 years of industry experience to Iatric, including nine years as project manager with St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital (Houston).
A McKesson systems expert, Lawson has served as chair for the McKesson Meds Manager users group, Insight, for the past five years and was honored with the Insight Member Achievement Award in 2008.
"[The] launch of our Integration and Interface Services Division is a key part of Iatric Systems' growth strategy for 2009 and beyond," said Joel Berman, founder/president of Iatric Systems.
As of this month, Iatric Systems' solutions are able to interface with more than 650 software systems and platforms, including McKesson, Cerner, Siemens, Cardinal, Phillips, and more.
The company said the Integration and Interface Services Division will leverage its engineering ingenuity to build on this heritage, designing solutions that help save hospitals time and money.
"Our primary goal for this ... division is to partner with hospital HIS professionals to identify, engineer and present cost-effective software solutions that integrate seamlessly into their existing infrastructure," said Lawson, associate vice president of the new division.
Iatric Systems helps hospitals and health systems leverage their HIS investment with software, interfaces and reporting services. Since 1990, more than 800 hospitals worldwide have implemented the company's solutions, optimizing patient care and staff workflow in clinical, financial and administrative areas.
