DeWitt, NY & Herndon, VA , April 13, 2010 – – JAG Products, LLC (www.clinictracker.com) and Canvas today announced today a collaboration that provides JAG clients with ClinicTracker Mobile. Powered by GoCanvas, ClinicTracker Mobile enables mental health and chemical dependence agencies to collect and access key patient information from their mobile devices.
With ClinicTracker Mobile, Clinicians and field-workers can now view a patient’s demographic information, prior services, and medication history, as well as record appointments which include progress notes and patient signature collection, using a HIPAA-compliant process. Visiting nurses and clinicians can access key background information on clients and replace inefficient paper-based forms. Organizations that provide transportation services can also have their own mobile apps to record key information on client pick-ups and drop-offs.
QCI Behavioral Health, Largo, MD was looking to replace multiple systems with one integrated solution that could support their mobile behavioral healthcare workforce. According to Jeffrey Shinensky, Clinical Director at QCI, they selected ClinicTracker Mobile “because JAG combines solid old-fashioned personalized relationship based customer service with all the modern high-tech needed to operate a fully functional office and mobile based EMR solution. QCI will be using the ClinicTracker Mobile application to record patient visits, transportation records, and appointment scheduling while in the community.”
With ClinicTracker Mobile, mobile health care providers replace their clipboards and paper with any one of a wide variety of mobile devices including Blackberry, Windows Phones, Android, Windows XP+ (netbooks, laptops, tablets, etc) and coming soon iPhone and iPad. Patient records filled out on Smartphones are securely forwarded into the ClinicTracker EMR where they are available for immediate access by ClinicTracker users. By using GoCanvas to power ClinicTracker Mobile, JAG clients have the maximum flexibility to customize their mobile experience all while supporting the mobile device they wish to deploy.
