(Carlsbad, CA - December 30, 2002) - EOS International, the leading global supplier of library automation software for special libraries, today announced that the offices of M. Michael Massumi have selected the Q Series to automate the clinic's library in order to help the clinic better manage growth and knowledge management.
"In any type of knowledge-based organization, including health care, the availability and immediate retrieval of information is critical to effective decision-making in the provision of quality care," says Dr. Massumi. "Additionally, as the Internet is now enabling the interoffice and inter-organization relationships to become more fluent, web-based services have become extremely important to allow clients and other physicians access to our knowledge services. This led to my decision to purchase a library solution for our clinic. When I compared competing products side by side, it was quite evident that Q Series was far superior from both a programming and end-user perspective".
"The selection of the Q Series by Dr. Massumi validates the key role our clients have had in guiding the direction and growth of our company," states Tony Saddat, CEO of EOS International. "I have been impressed with Dr. Massumi's experience and believe he will provide valuable feedback, thus helping EOS to provide the most powerful, flexible, and easy to use library and information access software available.
Dr. Massumi carries a particularly keen interest in Informatics Medicine, which focuses on the advancement of health care through the management and use of information. He and his associates have been impressed with the short learning curve for the Q Series and like how the Web OPAC module works in tandem with his current web-based services for patient registry and information. Library integration with in-house management and accounting databases for cross-referencing is a crucial part of his overall growth plan and he expects the addition of the Q Series to his practice to be a positive marketing, patient retention, and referral tool.
