Populus Global's ACSiS proprietary Health Information System has emerged as the World Health Organization's Health Metrics Network as a best practice solution for developing countries. Their comprehensive system enables effective centralized management of national, regional, or local health sectors. Understanding that the central transaction within the business of Health Care is between patient and clinician, the hub of ACSiS is the Electronic Health Record (EHR).
Successfully implemented in the countries of Belize, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the company is presently doing the same in Barbados. A report by the World Health Organization attributed a 9% reduction in pharmaceutical expenses plus a 70% reduction in complications arising from hypertension in Belize to the implementation of the company's software solution.
Beyond its primary function, ACSiS' ability to function even when connectivity to its main database fails is a tremendously attractive feature in countries that face severe storms and unreliable telecommunications infrastructure.
