EMR from your POV

You chose to practice medicine because you wanted to practice medicine, not to spend your time staring at a screen. Healium was designed by physicians for physicians, to free them from the confines of today's EMR. With Healium, clinicians can access vital information in the way that suits their personal work style, so that they can navigate their work days the way they want. Healium improves the provider-patient relationship and positively impacts patient safety and quality of care, making EMR work for you, not against you.

The End of
400 Clicks Per Hour

That's how frequently an emergency physician clicks a mouse during a shift. With a spoken-language interface, contextual awareness through geolocation and advanced patient ID as well as pushed workflow alerts, Healium facilitates a quicker, more efficient interaction with all major EMRs.

More Face Time
with Your Patients

Physicians spend 44% of their time attending to the EMR. With Healium, doctors can now reduce their divided time and focus on the care of their patients. Hands-free, timely, on-demand viewing of results and records helps you spend less time at the computer and more time at your patients' bedsides.


Advanced user-interface design running on next-generation wearable and mobile technology, augmented reality, voice interaction, speech-to-text, contextual awareness, and clinical-language understanding position Healium as the next virtual medical assistant.
