Artemis was founded in 1996 as Breathe America, and developed an electronic medical record (EMR) to improve clinical workflow and operational efficiency in allergy physician practices. The focus shifted in 1999 to the underserved OB-GYN market and in 2002 the company launched the first OB-GYN-specific EMR in the U.S., which was developed using input from more than 150 obstetrician-gynecologists.
The company also changed its name in 2002 to digiChart and narrowed its core mission to “Improve Women’s Health.” digiChart later expanded to offer solutions for practice management and patient engagement, and grew its customer base to nearly 1,400 medical providers nationwide.
In 2013, digiChart changed its name to Artemis to better reflect its mission and vision for the future. Artemis bridges the practice to the patient through innovative patient engagement and specialty-specific workflow strategies, benefiting OB-GYN physician practices and other specialties.
