iMedicor Adds Pre-populated CV's to its HIPAA Compliant Portal Through Partnership with VitalsSM
New Program will Streamline Physicians' Registration on the iMedicor Portal
NANUET, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 29, 2009 - iMedicor, a Vemics Company (OTCBB: VMCI), today announced that it has entered into an agreement with VitalsSM, the leader in extensive, searchable physician databases. This partnership gives iMedicor the ability to access Vitals' database of more than 700,000 practicing physicians in the United States to streamline physicians' registration on the iMedicor portal.
“One of the most precious commodities in a physician's day is time,” said Fred Zolla, CEO of iMedicor. “Through this partnership, Vitals' detailed database of physicians practicing in the United States will expedite physicians' registration on our portal. After logging on, and authenticating their identity, doctors will be able to access their own, pre-populated Curriculum Vitae and begin using the portal immediately to take advantage of all the benefits it has to offer.”
iMedicor is the first free, HIPAA compliant health information exchange portal, offering a proprietary technology solution that addresses the long-standing and widespread inability of disparate Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems to communicate, collaborate and exchange medical records in a HIPAA compliant environment. iMedicor provides access to product-specific CME (Continuing Medical Education) resources, and facilitates e-prescribing and ordering refills.
“Vitals is delighted to be working with iMedicor. By combining their unique technology and our comprehensive database of virtually all the physicians in America, this partnership will benefit hundreds of thousands patients,” said Mitch Rothschild, CEO of Vitals, Inc. “With the Obama Administration's focus on improving patient care and reducing the cost of healthcare, we are proud to be contributing in this space and look forward to leveraging our assets to participate in additional ways.”
