Improved patient care, lower mortality, and cost reduction are among the benefits cited in a study by BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, following a retrospective study which included analysis of 4,000 patient years of data collected on dialysis patients.

George Rovegno, CEO of MIQS, Inc, the EMR developer, said:

“For some years we have all believed that computers can provide the information tool needed to improve the quality of care, reduce costs and avoid serious errors. At last, in this landmark study, is the proof of the hypothesis.

Jonathan Lorch, MD, of The Rogosin Institute and Weill Cornell Medical College, said:

“The improved mortality rates we saw in our patients who were tracked using MIQS are striking.”
