Nurses Going Mobile with Canvas

Home Healthcare, a great fit for Canvas…

Our latest Home Healthcare subscriber is rolling out full steam ahead.  A Home Healthcare company in the Mid-Atlantic has already converted many of its paper forms to mobile apps using GoCanvas to virtually eliminate the use of paper in the field using Smartphones and Tablets.  Leveraging GoCanvas for real-time data collection, this group of nurses and aides are capturing standard patient information such as vitals, data on diabetic care, various readings and other assessments all on their Android Smartphones and Tablets during their regular visits.

Other examples of mobile apps include medical reconciliation reports (collecting information on medication, dosage, frequency, etc.), DME status and condition, and Service Agreements outlining consent along with capturing a patient’s electronic signature. All of these apps were built by this subscriber utilizing Canvas’s easy drag-and-drop SmartBuilder platform – it is easy and fast to do. 

Because GoCanvas is HIPAA compliant end-to-end from the mobile device to our secure backend, Home Healthcare appears to be a natural fit for utilizing the service and dramatically improving operational efficiencies and cutting costs.  Interested in our off the shelf pre-built applications in the medical space – visit the Healthcare section of our fast growing Application Store.
