Samsung unit sees sale of medical data tool as bridgeSamsung SDS, a global provider of information and communications technology, said yesterday it has agreed to export its Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution to Christus Health, a U.S.-based not-for-profit health system provider.
EMR solution is a system of integrated technologies that standardize patient data and link various departments within a health care delivery organization.
Christus Health comprises almost 350 services and facilities, including more than 60 hospitals and long-term care facilities, 175 clinics and outpatient centers and dozens of other health ministries and ventures throughout the U.S.
“The contract is significant, as it is based on a licensing model rather than on integrating systems, which is a first among domestic technology producers,” said Chang Hwa-jin, director of Samsung SDS’s global business division. “When this product is proven to be successful, it will help us expand our foothold in the U.S. market,”
