Now Strata Resource Matching and E-Referral™ can leverage Apple’s hottest new innovation to remotely manage patient assessment and access across the community care continuum from home or acute.
“We have long had the ability to remotely capture and action patient data within an acute ward or client home, but resisted pursuing smart phone deployments given the limitations of their small, some would say tiny screens, commented Strata Health CEO, Don Schick. “Look, like many clinicians – I’m in my fifties, far sighted and struggle with my iPhone© notes – never mind being asked to input critical patient data as our frontline users must do.”
The launch of the iPad has been highly anticipated by the Strata Health R&D team. “Apple© is leading the way on a new highly legible form factor that makes sense for the average clinical health care user,” Darren Jones, VP –Technology continues. “…add to that the iPad costs less than a laptop, is easily transported and has a terrific battery life – we believe the iPad will quickly find its way into health applications globally. We wanted to be ready.
