OUR HISTORY AND TEAM
COMPANY AND PRODUCT HISTORY
HealthSecure EMR is developed by SpiralFX Interactive, LLC, a software development company founded in 2000. We have been working with correctional facilities since 2003 to develop software for a variety of needs, including medical, financial, reporting, data conversion and interfaces. Current customers include Henrico County Sheriff”s Office in Virginia, the Mississippi Department of Corrections and Hawaii’s Department of Public Safety.
We first developed an EMR for a jail in 2008, and our customer for that product requested that we build a next-generation product to handle a much wider range of their medical needs.
With our prior experience and a supportive jail customer to guide our design decisions, we began new development of HealthSecure EMR in 2011 and deployed it at a 1500-bed jail in 2012. It has been in continuous live use since then and is being actively developed and grown as a product. Our product roadmap includes many innovations that will benefit current and future customers.
Our management team has deep experience in software development and medicine.
