With OnServiceMD Version 1.0, major gains to hospitalist workflow efficiency were realized. Patient triage, admission assignment, morning distribution, off-service hand-offs, and integrated secure communication were all features implemented in this first released version. Version 2.0, released in 2013, added multiple enhancements which improved user experience, added several new features, and optimized overall performance.
A changing IT landscape required that the software be completely re-engineered to ensure that the software stays ahead of user expectations. Much of these changes in Information Technology pertained to increased use on mobile and tablet devices. Corresponding with these IT changes was the growing importance of electronic scheduling solutions. These industry patterns resulted in the development of OnServiceMD Version 3.0. Work began on this complete software redesign in 2016, and was completed in early 2017. Release of Version 3.0 represented new standards for performance, security, and a completely new feature set. The introduction of OSMD Version 3.0 corresponded with the release of OnServiceMD Scheduling, a novel provider scheduling solution which offered features not available in other physician scheduling platforms with availability at a fraction of the cost of products from other scheduling vendors. Version 3.0 further introduced the integration of OnServiceMD Scheduling with the redesigned OnServiceMD Clinicals, a powerful combination which further enhances provider workflow while maintaining a highly organized schedule. Lastly, Version 3.0 implemented a completely new reporting platform, which enables hospitalist leaders to produce innovative clinical and scheduling reports that they can depend on to help understand their service’s staffing, team census, and other aspects of their operations.
