Flexible Informatics (formerly EchoAnalysis, LLC), a software and services company based in Bala Cynwyd, PA, provides innovative software and web-based solutions for problems faced by physicians and other health care professionals. Founded in 1998 by two University of Pennsylvania physicians, Drs. Craig Scott and Kevin Duffy.
Unlike most software which requires programmers to consult with experts, Flexible Informatics' unique solutions have been designed by the very people who use them. We provide the highest quality software designed by and created specifically for health care.
How EncaptureMD was born
"Why do I have to pay so much for transcription?!" "Why does it take so long to get a report to the chart?"
Our business administrator asked these questions in 1998. We agreed. We also knew the magnitude of the problem. Doctors don't like change, don't want to be forced to do something a certain way and certainly don't want to spend even more of our time doing busy work.
Medical reporting at that time was a combination of dictation, handwritten notes, numerous phone calls to get results and hours of filing, checking and re-checking reports before they were released, often after the patient had been discharged from the hospital.
With backgrounds in engineering, computer science and informatics we set out to create a system doctors would want to use. One that made their work more efficient, more accurate and more consistent. Our first systems, which are still in use after 9 years, have been used to interpret hundreds of thousands of procedures.
EncaptureMD is a revolution in the way we think about what computers can do for doctors. Try it and you'll agree.
