Astronaut, LLC

Astronaut EHR is an advanced version of VistA, the electronic health system developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Astronaut LLC has spent the past 18 years working on a fully modernized EHR based on VistA that leverages new technologies while relying on the solid VistA core to provide a highly capable, well-designed, sophisticated, and usable EHR that has everything needed by medicine practitioners, including mental health practitioners to efficiently record their patient’s data and leverage the data to provide better quality care.

Astronaut EHR was the first VistA-based electronic health record (EHR) system that can operate in the cloud. Astronaut EHR is easy to install and configure on a variety of settings, from individual physician offices to clinics and community health centers, to regional medical systems. And the cost of implementing and maintaining Astronaut EHR is only a small fraction of the cost of a lock-in, proprietary EHR.

Features and benefits:

  • Hundreds of pre-built clinically proven templates.
  • Nationwide interoperable network.
  • Longitudinal patient record across a region.

The Astronaut team has added many new features and modern web technologies to the Graphical User Interface (GUI), used by VistA and called CPRS. Astro-CPRS has added capabilities including:

  • Typography (multiple fonts with attributes as well as mixed font rendering).
  • Embedded note graphics.
  • Patient picture.
  • Single sign-on for most features.
  • Enterprise scheduling.
  • Admission/Discharge/Transfer.
  • Rocket Note(tm).
  • Turbo Supervision(tm) features,
  • Billing lists.

'Rocket Note(tm) and Turbo Supervision(tm) really began setting us apart from everyone else. Rocket Note(tm) broke new ground making the business of seeing and billing of established patients extremely efficient.Turbo Supervision took it to the next level extending VistA's powerful patient list capability. This makes mid-level supervision very comprehensive and very fast. It also gave VistA a transmission for the first time, with Next Patient, Previous Patient capability. VA clinicians have been asking for those capabilities and functionality for decades.
