HSTpathways Growth Plans in 2016

HSTpathways continues to grow as an industry leader in 2016 with the addition of HSTeChart and HSTanesthesia to the HST portfolio. HSTeChart is set for release in the coming weeks and HSTanesthesia will be introduced mid-year as an add-on solution to HSTpathways practice management solution.

“Over the past 18 months, HSTpathways has doubled the number of software developers in order to provide an integrated Electronic Health Record system and an Anesthesia Billing system,” said Tom Hui, HSTpathways’ President and CEO. “In addition, we are working on enhancements to our HSTpathways practice management workflows in the areas of security, additional reporting capabilities, automated workflow, revenue cycle management, and inventory management.”

HSTeChart was designed by clinicians for clinicians documenting specifically in the Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) setting. HST recognizes that charting needs and workflow for the electronic health record in an outpatient surgery center is distinctly different from the needs of a physician practice EMR or a complex hospital system’s EHR. HSTeChart will provide collaboration, speed, and flexibility to the ASC setting with concurrent charting that allows multiple users to simultaneously document on a single patient with real-time notifications of when an area of the chart has been modified.

More improvements are on the way. In 2016, additional investments in HST’s data center environment will promote performance, security, and reliability. The improvements are part of the continuous commitment to leading the industry with a track record of operating at five 9’s (99.999% uptime) for the cloud (ASP) hosted environment.

In addition to increasing the number of new software developers, HSTpathways has expanded its leadership with the addition and promotions of key executives:
