Apps are also available that aid in data collection and retrieval, such as entering information into a patient’s EHR or EMR.
Hospital information systems often include features that allow HCP management of EHRs and PACSs, permitting secure access to patient information (medical history, vitals, prescriptions, lab results, x-rays, scans, consultations, and discharge notes) either on site or remotely.
One health care software company, Epic Systems, has partnered with Apple and released versions of the Epic scheduling, billing, and clinical support app for the iPhone and iPad.
Patient Keeper Mobile Clinical Results provides physicians with access to patient clinical data via either Apple or Android mobile devices.
TeamViewer is a general-purpose record maintenance and access app that can be installed on mobile devices, allowing remote access to desktop PCs.
In the absence of such apps, a virtual private network (VPN) log-in can often be obtained from the hospital to allow remote secure access into the in-house network through the Internet to view records for emergency consultations.
Specialized apps are also available for remote viewing of medical imaging scans. Mobile MIM is a free app for the iPad and iPhone, approved by the Food and Drug Administration, that allows remote viewing of x-rays and imaging scans when users cannot access imaging workstations.
In short, HCPs Use Mobile Devices and Apps for Health Record Maintenance and Access as follows:
- Access EHRs and EMRs
- Access images and scans
- Electronic prescribing
- Coding and billing
