Charmhealth preferred vendor for Lifehouse Oncology Information System
For those interested in the technology base I was given this description:
"The Lifehouse CHI EMR/EMM solution leverages and builds on charmhealth’s existing CHARM-ONCOLOGY solution platform, introducing a web based interface layer built using Microsoft .NET technologies and Silverlight. The emphasis is on providing a seamless user experience across all layers, while ensuring ease of access is balanced with security at all levels. The solution is scalable and growth can be accommodated as non-traditional care models, like telehealth and video consultations, are introduced. Moving forward the CHI solution will form the technology platform for all charmhealth clinical applications. It uses the .NET Framework 4.0 making full use of the new user experience technologies of Silverlight 4.0 and ASP.NET 4.0. CHI takes full advantage of features offered in SQL Server 2008. The solution design and build has taken a standards based approach and incorporates many features of the Microsoft Common User Interface, as designed with the NHS in the UK."
