The Perks of Being a “Venerable App”
For the second consecutive year, Modern Healthcare magazine has named PatientKeeper to its list of “Most Important Mobile Medical Apps”. Of course we are pleased to receive the recognition, having worked long and hard as a company to attain a strong position in the healthcare IT market. It turns out “long” is a recurring theme in Modern Healthcare’s list, as seven of the top 10 apps come from companies founded in the 1990s or earlier. (PatientKeeper was founded in 1998.) In the mHealth field, that qualifies PatientKeeper as an “old standby” and “venerable”, in the words of Modern Healthcare.
Fortunately, age has its privileges – or in this case, its advantages. Since we’ve been working at mobility for 15 years, PatientKeeper knows app development really well, which enables us to deliver high-quality mobile software for charge capture, CPOE and documentation, with a robust feature set and a superior user experience for physicians. (Findings of a recent KLAS survey reinforce this last point, specifically for CPOE.) “Venerable” also means PatientKeeper has a large (50,000+) physician user base, and a lot of experience satisfying customers with a history of impatience with IT.
So let’s hear it for the “venerable” in mHealth. Sometimes it’s good to be “old”.
