It started more than 15 years ago with a simple observation: physicians need an easier way to access and work with patient information. Long before the popularization of electronic health records and the advent of Meaningful Use incentives, PatientKeeper was a pioneer, offering physicians a single view of their patients’ information, integrated from multiple systems across a hospital, and easily accessible on computers and mobile devices.
Since then, PatientKeeper has become a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, with:
- more than 60,000 active physician users at community hospitals, academic medical centers and other provider organizations;
- applications for CPOE, charge capture, med rec, documentation, and an award-winning physician portal;
- a native mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices that lets physicians access and act on information, anytime, anywhere; and
- a unique “overlay” architecture that integrates with a hospital’s current systems and preserves an organization's existing IT investment.
Now PatientKeeper is raising the bar again, developing a healthcare IT innovation platform that will advance the use of computers by physicians and care teams, and make them indispensable tools for 21st century clinical care.
