Mobile apps in the healthcare sector are now in great demand because these allow healthcare professionals to easily record or document, communicate and access vital patient information at the point of care through mobile point of care solutions. With healthcare service providers migrating to electronic medical record (EMR) systems following the regulations issued by the federal government, mobile apps are becoming handy for healthcare professionals these days.
Mobile applications enable healthcare professionals to easily access on-screen and stored patient medical reports / histories on their iPhones whenever they like. Clinical information can be obtained at the point-of-care on the latest mobile devices. These devices can facilitate easy access to records related to admission, consultation, procedures, discharge and more. Physicians and other healthcare professionals can share or contribute EMRs through mobile apps. Vital health images of patients and other reports can be sent or received over wireless mobile networks, in case providers need to consult among themselves or for reference purposes.
With the arrival of secure mobile medical apps, doctors have started sharing challenging and interesting medical information. Interestingly, even patients now tend to share their healthcare data with their treating physicians via mobile medical applications. Communication among doctors as well as that between doctors and their patients is becoming digital. The positive side of this is that doctors can now provide timely and better care for their patients, being alerted to their requirements in an opportune manner.
Doctors can even dictate their notes into their Smartphones, but many of them prefer to have a reliable medical transcription company take care of their transcription. This is mainly because of the accuracy and efficiency ensured by an experienced medical transcription firm compared to the many hassles involved in doctors dictating into a mobile app – issues such as speech recognition accuracy, physician workflow and physicians’ lack of enthusiasm to edit the transcription.
