CareTools offers digital medical record system for iPhone and iPod touch

CareTools : 23 July, 2008  (New Product)
CareTools has introduced the company's native digital medical record system for iPhone and iPod touch which will be available on the Apple App Store.
'We recognised early on that iPhone has the potential to radically change the use of information technology at the most important patient/provider interface - the actual point-of-care,' said Dr Thomas Giannulli, president, CareTools. 'We believe iChart running natively on iPhone is a leapfrog product in terms of its functionality, ease of use and affordable price. Given the value that iChart offers, we are confident it will significantly stimulate the adoption of information technology by healthcare providers.'

iChart has been designed to act as an electronic 'personal medical assistant' and focuses on streamlining the daily 'chart, bill and fill' routine of every healthcare provider. iChart uses the advanced capabilities of iPhone and iPod touch to warehouse patient data, and images, in addition to providing an updated list of medications, drug interactions, pharmacies, billing codes and complaint specific clinical templates. Synchronization of new information is accomplished wirelessly using secure web technology and iChart allows a single provider or entire healthcare network to automate medical data capture and effortlessly look-up patient related information using an efficiently designed 'touch and tap' interface.

The iChart application can be configured to synchronize data to the user's included iChart Sync online account, where data can be viewed, shared and printed via a standard web browser. Group and enterprise accounts can setup data sharing teams and leverage data input by iChart teammates in near real-time. Caretools also offers each user the opportunity to link to community or enterprise lab results via a central HL7 gateway, and route prescriptions to national e-Prescribing networks. The iChart application will priced from $499 and can be downloaded wirelessly from the App Store using iPhone or iPhone touch.

Apple's new App Store will provide iPhone users with native applications in a variety of categories including games, business, news, sports, health, reference and travel. The App Store on iPhone works over cellular networks and Wi-Fi, which means it is accessible from just about anywhere, so you can purchase and download applications wirelessly and start using them instantly. Some applications are even free and the App Store notifies you when application updates are available. The App Store will be available in 62 countries at launch.
