Q&A with Dr. Vinod Nair

by Lauren Dubinsky , Senior Reporter
One of the challenges cardiologists faced in the past was the lack of a specialized heart database. Cardiologists would spend a lot of time scanning paperwork and sifting through health records to evaluate a patient’s condition.

In addition, if a patient was taken care of at a different facility, important data including medications they took and surgery outcomes were sometimes not accessible. To solve that, a group of cardiologists founded Objective Medical Systems few years ago and develop EHR software for cardiology practices.

DOTmed News had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Vinod Nair, president of OMS, about how the EHR can help cardiologists, the different health information technology challenges cardiologists face today and what the future of cardiology HIT will look like.

DOTmed News: Can you give me a brief history of cardiology EHR software?

Dr. Vinod Nair: OMS EHR was founded on the premise that the speciality of cardiology is very different from the rest of the sub-specialities and general medicine. The OMS EHR is designed from the ground up with the busy cardiologist in mind.

The contemporary EHR solutions cater to general practitioners with some modifications made for specialists. Much of the pain and frustration that is rampant for EHR users can be traced to the inability to incorporate a specific specialist workflow or “business rule”.

OMS EHR is specifically designed for a cardiologist and incorporates seamless workflow of such a specialist with tight integration with OMS Diagnostic module.

DOTmed News: Can you describe some of the EHR demands that are unique to cardiology?

VN: The sub-speciality of cardiology is unique in that it is heavily evidence based. The cardiovascular specialists enjoy abundance of evidence based guidelines and recommendations from a variety of distinguished organizations like the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association.

Most of the EHR’s consider cardiology just like any other sub-speciality, the diagnostic tests performed are most of the time “scanned into” the EHR, losing important evidence based data that can be analyzed to make clinical recommendation. This results in the physician having to wade through multiple screens to make clinical decisions.

DOTmed News: What sets OMS apart from other cardiology EHR software on the market?

VN: 1. The UI design and workflow is architected by practicing cardiologists and designed to support cardiovascular outpatient clinic requirements.
