In a world where medical software is systemically plagued by complexity, OMS is helping cardiologists take back control. Created by and for cardiologists, allow us to restore your faith in what’s possible.
How a team of cardiologists are changing heart care
A few years ago several frustrated cardiologists discussed the many challenges they and their patients faced in their industry.
Without a specialized heart database, cardiologists often find themselves spending a lot of time scanning paperwork and digging through graphs and health records to try to evaluate a patient’s condition. If a patient had been treated at a different hospital or medical center, important pieces of their history — prescriptions they had taken, even the outcomes of surgeries — were sometimes inaccessible altogether. This meant doctors had no easy way to record and compare heart data, the kind of information that in the most serious cases can help determine whether a critical prescription or procedure could save someone’s life.
Those same cardiologists ultimately did what doctors do best — they figured out an effective treatment plan to alleviate those issues. A team of cardiovascular specialists developed EHR software and diagnostic tools to efficiently manage vital patient information for cardiology practices, ultimately founding Objective Medical Systems. This niche technology has been able to streamline the work of cardiologists and reduce human error, as well as save time and money for both the doctors and the patients.
Objective Medical Systems
OMS was founded on the belief that discrete data and background analysis will revolutionize the practice of medicine, improve patient care, increase physician efficiency and reduce errors. The OMS software solution was developed and inspired by leading cardiologists in each sub-specialty of cardiology.
OMS caters to the busy cardiology practice or hospital service line looking for a cardiovascular information system providing structured reporting across all diagnostic modalities. In addition, OMS offers a Stage 3 certified electronic health record built from the ground up for cardiology specialists. By maintaining a narrow focus on cardiology, OMS is able to offer an elaborate, powerful, and user-intuitive solution.

Peter Fail, MD
Dr. Fail is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology. He is level three certified in the cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) experience program. Dr. Fail is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the American College of Chest Physicians, the American College of Physicians and a member of the American Medical Association. He has written or co-authored numerous research papers, abstracts, book chapters, and medical presentations in his specialty.
Chief Privacy Officer, Interventional Cardiologist
Rick Abben, MD
Dr. Abben has a broad experience in both interventional cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology, and is a lecturer, researcher, and published author in both areas. With this background, he has successfully developed a large clinical practice, consistently being named by both Louisiana Life and New Orleans magazines as one of Louisiana’s “Best Doctors.” He has particular expertise in cardiac rhythm devices, having been one of the South’s first implanters of a cardiac resynchronization pacemaker in 1998. His experience has allowed him to organize and direct an ongoing physician’s training course in device therapy. In addition, for twenty-five years he co-directed an international cardiology symposium in cardiovascular interventions entitled “Principles and Perspectives in Interventional Cardiology,” an annual venue that has constantly attracted the leading minds in interventional cardiology as faculty members.

Gary Chaisson, RTR, RCSA
Mr. Chaisson has over 35 years experience managing cardiovascular product lines and cardiology practices. Additionally, he held a key technical position with Advanced Cardiovascular Systems. A.C.S ultimately became the vascular interventional arm of Guidant Corp. Mr. Chaisson has served in a variety of consulting and advisory roles with over 16 cardiovascular and orthopedic device start up companies, all of which were successfully acquired or entered the market as an IPO. Mr. Chaisson has played an instrumental role in over 22 FDA phase I or phase II medical device clinical trials. In addition to broad clinical experience, Mr. Chaisson holds numerous patents on a variety of interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery devices and has published over 70 articles and 4 book chapters.
