WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA - The makers of Mavenlive, a physiotherapy exercises software (, have announced that they have created a complex rules engine that enables syntax-based searches of electronic medical records.

Difficulty in retrieving information from electronic medical records has been recognized as a significant problem for some time, says Dr. Jay Winburn, president of Prognition Corp., which introduced Mavenlive rehabilitation exercise software in 2009 (

Due to their ability to be stored digitally, electronic medical records can be recalled instantaneously. However, a record that is 100 pages long can pose an obstacle for a healthcare worker who lacks the time needed to read through it, Winburn says. That means important information located in the documentation could get overlooked.

"Sadly, this happens frequently," says Chris Metcalfe, vice president of technical development for the company that specializes in physical therapy software programs ( "Performing a keyword search is not seen as being very helpful because search results tend to be too general."

Getting general results means effort then must be placed into sorting through the returned results. "Clinicians and their support staff don't often have the luxury of time," Metcalfe says.

The future that healthcare policy makers see for physical therapy billing software (, physical therapy documentation software and exercise prescription software (, is that it may become part of a complete EMR that gives patients more control over their own health care, he says. Retrieving and interpreting EMR information in an easy fashion is an element of this process. Syntax-based search makes it possible for the logical "context" surrounding the info to be assessed in choosing pertinent information.

Mavenlive's rules engine also enables retrieved information to be interpreted in language appropriate to the person viewing it, whether the person is a patient or a professional health care worker. "This advancement makes Mavenlive quite a robust physical therapy software solution and a leader in all of healthcare," Winburn says.
