Published on December 15, 2011 at 7:39 AM
Virco Lab, Inc., the U.S. affiliate of Virco BVBA, today announced the launch of AVIGA™ and AVIGA REPORTER™. AVIGA™ is a web-based electronic health record (EHR) solution with HIV/AIDS disease-specific functionality and AVIGA REPORTER™ is a web-based, data-reporting module designed specifically for the purposes of conducting HIV/AIDS research and providing reporting capabilities. AVIGA REPORTER™ can be used as a standalone product or integrated with an existing EHR. Both products can provide local and federal data reporting, including requirements for Ryan White Care Act funding.
"The launch of AVIGA™ and AVIGA REPORTER™ represents a significant milestone in addressing the needs of HIV healthcare providers, enabling highly efficient research and reporting capabilities from the users' desktop," said David Rebey, Head of U.S. Business Operations, Virco Lab, Inc. "The AVIGA™ family of products is at the forefront of HIV/AIDS EHR technology, allowing healthcare professionals to realize the power and benefits of health information technology so they spend less time on paper-work and more on effectively managing their patients' complex, health care needs through generating insights from the mass of clinical data."
Virco BVBA acquired the electronic medical record LABTRACKER™ HIV in December 2009 from its originator company, Ground Zero Software. Since the acquisition, Virco has completely re-developed the platform in collaboration with the HIV treatment community. AVIGA™ allows users to collect, manage and analyze patient data from physicians, pharmacies, labs and clinics. The software's HIV/AIDS specific functionality offers health care providers an analytical module, and the capability to graph such clinical indicators as viral load and CD4 trends against antiretroviral therapy and integrate longitudinal resistance profiles.
AVIGA REPORTER™ is a data-reporting module that will primarily serve as a reporting and querying tool for both local and federal data reporting, including requirements for Ryan White Care Act funding. This module can interface with other commercial EHRs and software applications, specifically capturing and configuring medical information necessary for HIV reporting or research.
