Resource Patient Management System (RPMS) Support & Training
RPMS is an integrated solution for the management of clinical, business practice and administrative information in healthcare facilities of various sizes. Flexible hardware configurations, over 50 software applications, and appropriate network communication components combine to provide a comprehensive clinical, financial, and administrative solution. This solution is in use at most health care facilities within the Indian health care delivery system.
It is Meaningful Use (Certified HIT Product) certified [inpatient | outpatient] by the U.S. Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC).
The Indian Health Service Resource Patient Management System (RPMS) is designed to meet the varying needs of the Indian Health Service and Tribal hospitals and clinics throughout the United States. RPMS is a decentralized automated information system that unlike many commercial software applications, is made up of several integrated software applications that can function alone if necessary. The software applications that make up RPMS, operate within a single database structure so information need only be entered once to be available for all users.
The objectives of RPMS are to provide information processing capability directly to the end users to support their administrative and health care programs; and to collect core information for a national database. The goal of RPMS is to provide meaningful and rapid access to information for direct support of health care delivery and resource management.
