New name for Applied Informatics for Health Society
May 27, 2020
VANCOUVER – Applied Informatics for Health Society (AIHS), creator of the #1 rated EMR MOIS, has changed its legal name to Bright Health Solutions Society and will be commonly known as Bright Health going forward.
The organization also recently released solutions and add-ons for the OSCAR EMR, and myhealthkey – a Patient Health Record solution that is tightly integrated with the MOIS EMR. This name change marks an exciting time for the growing non-profit organization.
“We think our new name and look are more contemporary and approachable. They also reflect our vision and values: inspiring transformation in healthcare,” says Bill Gordon (pictured), CEO of Bright Health. “We’re very proud of our roots and the history of how we came to be AIHS. However, as Bright Health we better showcase who we are and what we offer today.”
Bright Health is creating an ecosystem of user-friendly and secure tools that seamlessly support continuous improvement in healthcare. With its standards-based Electronic Medical Record system and integrated Personal Health Record application, Bright Health is elevating the healthcare experience for both patients and providers with the goal of achieving better outcomes.
“We’ve seen exciting growth and development over the last 5 years. We’ve gone from a single product offering to a collection of integrated solutions for multiple EMRs,” said Larry Chrobot, senior director at Bright Health. “This change allows us to have a greater impact on healthcare in Canada while we continue to do what we do best: develop high quality software solutions and provide best-in-class support.”
