Report created for CIOs and healthcare IT decision makers highlights vendors that are innovative, impactful and intriguing
TORONTO and SAINT JOHN, N.B. – April 27, 2010 - AnyWare Group Inc., a leading provider of healthcare portal solutions, today announced it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors in Healthcare Providers, 2010" report by Gartner, Inc. AnyWare Group is one of five vendors highlighted in the report, recognized for providing innovative and potentially transformative solutions for healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs).
One of the report's key findings was “HDOs are rushing to provide clinicians mobile access to applications and patient data, but they are struggling with identity and access management. They will need to explore innovative, nontraditional approaches*.”
AnyWare Group provides physician and patient portal solutions to healthcare organizations using an innovative managed service approach that simplifies remote access deployments, including identity and access management. As a secure web-based managed service, AnyWare Group's ROAM solution enables healthcare organizations to provide its constituents with remote access to critical applications and systems at a fraction of the cost and time of solutions developed in house.
Driven by the need to reduce costs and improve usability, healthcare organizations use AnyWare Group’s solutions for initiatives that range from providing workers remote access to applications in a clientless manner, to involving patients in the management of their health.
"Inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirms our belief that healthcare IT decision makers need alternatives to traditional ‘buy, build and support’ software models,” says Robert Lalonde, CEO of AnyWare Group. “Our unique approach to delivering healthcare physician and patient portal solutions redefines the quality of solutions healthcare organizations can deliver and the time needed to deliver it.”
The authors of the report include senior Gartner analysts Jonathan Edwards, Barry Runyon, Vi Shaffer, Thomas J. Handler, M.D., John-David Lovelock, and Wes Rishel.
