RALEIGH, N.C. -- Latest Versions of Industry Proven Products will be on Display at HIMSS 2006 Conference in Misys Booth #721

Misys Healthcare Systems, a market leader in healthcare IT, will highlight its market-leading initiatives towards interoperability at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2006 Conference, Feb. 12-16 in San Diego, Calif. Interoperability among healthcare IT systems and facilities is a government and healthcare industry goal. Misys continues to lead the industry by providing products to support seamless connectivity throughout all healthcare settings.

In its booth (#721), Misys will display the latest versions of products in its Misys Optimum(TM) family, a line of solutions designed to increase patient information sharing across organizations, leading to a truly connected healthcare environment. A short Misys Optimum demonstration, available at the booth, will offer a quick overview of the product suite and show how physicians can share data across healthcare venues, even using other vendor solutions. The products will also be featured as part of the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase, which will be structured as a fully functioning HIMSS Regional Health Information Infrastructure Organization.

Featured Misys Optimum Products

--Misys EMR(R): Physicians and staff using Misys EMR adopt a paperless system to cut costs associated with administration while enhancing patient care.
