Kumpulan Perubatan Johor (KPJ) to Fulfill Vision for Full Electronic Medical Record with VESALIUS

KUALA LUMPUR, June 18, 2003 – Kumpulan Perubatan Johor (KPJ), one of the largest healthcare groups in the region, signed an agreement with novaMSC to implement its vision for the hospital group – a complete electronic medical record using novaMSC’s healthcare solution VESALIUS.

VESALIUS, piloted in Puteri Specialist Hospital (PSH) last year to support the doctor’s consultation process. The agreement will see a phased extension be extended to cover other modules such as Pharmacy, Inpatient Nursing & Order Management, Clinical Templates and Operating Theatre Management.

The solution will provide PSH doctors with online and organized access to vital clinical data and other diagnostic results. With integration to the hospital’s existing Laboratory System, real-time laboratory results will also be made available to doctors on their desktop.

Patient safety is uppermost on any caregiver’s mind, likewise VESALIUS R&D’s priority. In-built features to eliminate common prescription errors with alerts to drug allergies, maximum dosage and drug-drug interactions ensure our clinical users can fully focus on patient care. Sophisticated set-ups also automate and make certain drug instructions and cautionary given to patients are accurate, consistent and legible.

As part of the project, VESALIUS-Clinical Management and Pharmacy will be extended to another of KPJ’s hospital, Johor Specialist Hospital (JSH).
