Wemex Launches Electronic Medical Record System Medicom-CK II to Support Healthcare Provider Efficiency at Rehabilitation Hospitals in Japan — Easy-to-Use and Comprehensive Support Service with On-Premises and Cloud-Based Functions —
Wemex Corporation (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President, Representative Director: Takayuki Otsuka, hereafter Wemex), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PHC Holdings Corporation (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo), announces the launch of Medicom-CK II*1, an electronic medical record (EMR) system for general and small- to medium-sized long-term rehabilitation hospitals to help improve the work efficiency of healthcare providers.
In long-term rehabilitation hospitals in Japan, the volume of medical data increases proportionally to the number of patients requiring long-term care. EMRs and easy-to-operate cloud-based systems can enhance healthcare provider efficiency. Medicom-CK II can be used both as an on-premise and cloud-based system, and supports digital transformation in long-term rehabilitation hospitals through its simple operability and comprehensive support service.
■Benefits of Medicom-CK II EMR System for General and Small- to Medium-Sized Long-Term Rehabilitation Hospitals
#1 Hospitals can select suitable server type
Medicom-CK II offers an on-premise server with highly customizable and operationally flexible features, and a cloud-based server accessible from any location. Hospitals can select an on-premise or cloud-based server based on their examination and work style and available set-up space.
#2 Supports medical care teams with features specifically designed for long-term rehabilitation hospitals
Medicom-CK II supports medical care teams and nurses with features to enhance workflow, including sharing medical record information and data between nursing care, rehabilitation, and testing departments. Testing and treatment details can also be ordered and entered through this system.
#3 Integrates with Medicom-HSif*2 medical-receipt computer for hospitals
Medicom-Hsif, a medical-receipt computer compatible with Medicom Cloud Connect API*3, can be integrated with Medicom-CK II. This enables the EMR system to connect with medical cloud services, such as online appointment and cashless payment systems.
#4 Easy-to-use support services for new EMR users
The simple screen layout uses easy-to-read color and text, allowing EMR system beginners to operate the standardized screens intuitively. Wemex provides support services from installation to operational use for Medicom brand products*4 through our 140 offices located across Japan.
