In the beginning
When Peter Goltra began developing MEDCIN in 1978, he was guided by the belief that the most powerful computer in any exam room is the one between the clinician’s ears. Physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals are among the most highly trained workers in the world and don’t need computers to tell them what they already know – which is why MEDCIN is designed to support clinical thought processes and workflows that provide clinicians with patient- and problem-specific information at the point of care.
MEDCIN: Built by physicians for physicians
Medicomp, with the most experienced physicians and brightest information technologists have worked to create the industry’s leading clinical engine – widely known as MEDCIN. Surpassing its predecessors, MEDCIN goes beyond terminology standards to creating clinical relevancies and connections that help guide precise and accurate care to patients.
For more than 40 years, Medicomp Systems has worked in partnership with physicians to build and update the Medicomp MEDCIN Engine. Clinicians from institutions including Harvard, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, and the U.S. Department of Defense have dedicated tens of thousands of hours providing input and expertise to ensure MEDCIN meets the needs of physicians.
