HIPAA HITECH Compliant Mobile Apps Available for Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile Smartphones
GoCanvas Provides Health Care Organizations With The Ability To Securely Collect Sensitive Patient Health Information For EMR Systems On Mobile Devices.
Herndon, VA , May 11, 2010 – Canvas announced today it had released a new configurable version of their mobile service allowing subscribers the ability to support HIPAA HITECH compliant mobile applications on the GoCanvas service. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 requires that healthcare organizations enforce a number of safeguards to secure Protected Health Information (PHI), providing that level of security in a mobile environment has only been available to date through the use point solutions designed to meet one need. With this latest release of GoCanvas, healthcare organizations, Electronic Medical Record (EMR) providers and others in the health care arena can now create their own custom mobile applications or choose one from The Healthcare and Life Sciences section of the GoCanvas Mobile Application Store assured that their information collected is safe and secure.
With GoCanvas, disconnected healthcare workers in a hospital, health care facility or at a remote setting such as a patient’s home can collect key information regarding patients, schedule appointments, record medications, as well as pull up key medical history information in a completely customizable environment.
“Many of our behavioral healthcare clients find that they frequently are called upon to deliver services out of their offices. ClinicTracker Mobile provides a HIPAA compliant solution to record those services delivered anywhere the provider goes. Powered by GoCanvas, ClinicTracker Mobile can be uniquely customized to capture progress notes, patient information, appointment notes, transportation services, and much more. This easy to use application is fully integrated with our ClinicTracker product suite for improved efficiency, better security, and improved patient care. “said Mark Shriro, Director of Marketing for ClinicTracker.
Among other HIPAA data security requirements, GoCanvas now provides the ability to encrypt and secure patient data both on mobile devices (Android,Windows Smartphones, Blackberry and Windows based PC, tablets or netbooks) and within their cloud based reporting and integration platform. With this upgrade, GoCanvas further protects mobile devices against unwarranted access providing further assurances to clients that their data is safe no matter where or how they are collecting it.
Some examples of mobile users and apps that are now possible with Canvas:
- Visiting nurses filling out patient records on their Blackberry at a client’s home.
- Mobile doctors who want to pull up the history of medication subscribed from a patient’s record and do it on their Android.
- Medical device manufacturers’ recording what equipment was associated with what client.
- Substance abuse specialists wanting to record their next appointment and pull up records of past appointments.
“Our current subscribers already have the ability to find or create their own mobile applications quickly and easily, with this upgrade we open up the opportunity for Healthcare groups to experience this same flexibility in an environment that provides the protection these organizations need. “stated James Quigley CEO of GoCanvas.
