PHYAURA EHR, a leading open-source provider of web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) software, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with ClickMedix, LLC that will enhance their innovative mobile health technology, mHealth.
“I've looked at many EHR solutions and selected PHYAURA because it was designed by experienced practicing physicians,” explains Ting Shih, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “At ClickMedix, we aim to free physicians from paper work and bureaucracy so that they can do what they do best - that is to treat patients. PHYAURA EHR is designed to effectively expedite clinical workflow, and when used in conjunction with the mobile front-end of ClickMedix, we are completing the end-to-end care for patients, from early detection to diagnosis, treatment, billing, follow-up care, and patient education for preventative care through easily accessible mobile phones or web browsers.”
ClickMedix designed mobile health systems can withstand unreliable or intermittent mobile network, serves patients from rural regions to crowded urban areas, while streamlining the varied workflows of healthcare providers to lower the overall costs of healthcare. ClickMedix has created a HIPAA-compliant and user-friendly mHealth platform that can be deployed quickly to health practitioners and connect patients with medical experts worldwide. Ms. Shih leads the design, development, and deployment efforts for ClickMedix’s affordable healthcare platform used for telemedicine, home-visit care, and patient self-management.
According to Jude A. Pierre, MD, co-founder of PHYAURA, “Input of patient data at point of care takes on a whole new meaning now. Our strategic partnership will allow physicians and health care professionals the ability to document care given within the office or the field.”
Together, PHYAURA and ClickMedix will enter the market segment of corporations looking to provide a better way to deliver health care to their employees via secure mobile technology services. This will allow the clinicians to utilize telemedicine to consult with and treat employees. “Not only does this save on medical costs, it improves patient care and all within one platform,” explains Dr. Pierre. “Employees and employers lose hours of work time traveling and waiting to receive health care. Therefore, many businesses are beginning to incorporate mobile health services, which are easy to use, and a convenience that everyone is viewing as a value-added benefit.”
