The cloud-based solution’sintuitive interface, which seamlessly integrates into existing clinical workflows, mirrors the way physicians think and work to help clinicians to make sense of all available clinical data.Quippe also enables quicker, more accurate clinical documentation.
Marathon Health’simplementation of Quippe was a core component of a recent upgrade to their existing EMR, which included the migration of 10 years’ worth of clinical data. One of the nation’s leading providers of worksite health centers, Marathon Health chose Quippe because of its ability to transform unstructured data into meaningful information, as well as its easy-to-use templates and workflow tools that allowed them to customize the EMR for clinicians. The solution’s streamlined approach to documenting clinical encounters was also a key differentiator.
“AtMedicomp, our purpose is to improve healthcare by presenting relevant information at thepoint-of-care for physicians, in a useable way. We know that so many providers, like Marathon Health, have wanted to increase the usability of their EMRs, and that they deserve the best for both clinicians and patients. That’s why we developed Quippe—because we believe that healthcare can be better with the support of better data and technology,” stated David Lareau, CEO at Medicomp.
“We believe thatproviders should take a patient-centered approach to care delivery, and that technology should help clinicians to deliver that top quality care, not be a frustration or a roadblock. We chose Quippe because we wanted a user-friendly, customizable solution that provided clinicians with much-needed data at the point-of-care, without slowing them down, and while simplifying our clinical documentation process,” said Marathon Health CEO Jerry Ford.

About Medicomp Systems
Since 1978, when Medicomp’s founderPeter Goltra set out to improve physicians’ access to relevant patient information and enable sharing of that information throughout the medical system, Medicomp has remained focused on the simple principle that information technology can be used to save lives and give caregivers what they need to care for the patient. The solution to this challenge was the development of a powerful knowledge engine, which is now in use in leading EHRs around the world.
