PatientKeeper Expands Android Support for Physicians to Include Electronic Charge Capture
Pioneer in physician mobility continues to innovate and enhance productivity for physicians by expanding support of healthcare applications on Android
WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PatientKeeper®, Inc., the leading provider of physician health information systems, today announced the release of PatientKeeper Charge Capture™ on the Google Android operating platform.
The announcement is further testimony to PatientKeeper’s position as a leader in delivering physician productivity applications for the most popular mobile devices. With the new release, PatientKeeper Charge Capture and Mobile Clinical Results™ now both run natively on increasingly popular Android devices, including the Droid X and Incredible from Verizon, EVO and EPIC from Sprint, and Captivate from AT&T.
“PatientKeeper pioneered mobile applications for physicians and continues to lead the industry by delivering physician-friendly software on today’s most popular mobile devices,” said PatientKeeper president and CEO Paul Brient. “Physicians are avid adopters of smartphones and tablets, and a growing portion of PatientKeeper’s 30,000 users are accessing our applications on mobile devices. Our ability to deliver mobility technology that makes it easier and faster for physicians to do their jobs enables them to focus on their patients rather than struggling with technology that is not designed for their optimal use in practice.”
PatientKeeper Charge Capture provides an automated billing workflow that easily fits a physician’s work style. It automatically checks for common coding errors and allows physicians to apply real-time code edits, see real time alerts for accurate charge entry, and communicate with billing staff through messaging.
PatientKeeper Mobile Clinical Results gives physicians easy access to a comprehensive set of clinical data on handheld devices. Users can see their patient lists and summaries, read lab and test results, review patients’ current medications, check order status, view all clinical notes, and more.
PatientKeeper’s leadership in mobile physician applications was underscored last October when the company received the “Best Innovation in Mobile Health Technology for Patient Safety” award at the Mobile Health Expo 2010 in Las Vegas for its mobile CPOE product. In addition, PatientKeeper Mobile Clinical Results was ranked among the top 10 most popular iPhone apps in Apple’s “EMR and Operational Apps” subcategory, according to a study of mobile health and medical applications published last fall by MobiHealthNews.
PatientKeeper’s EHR optimization software solutions streamline clinician workflow, improve care team collaboration, and fill functional gaps in existing hospital EHR systems. With PatientKeeper as the “system of engagement” complementing the EHR, clinicians can easily access and act on all their patient information from PCs, smartphones and tablets. PatientKeeper has more than 70,000 active users today. For more information about PatientKeeper, visit www.patientkeeper.com or call (781) 373-6100.
