Strong growth expected for iPad™ and Other Portable Devices
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New Mexico Software, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NMXC), a developer of medical IT services and solutions that enable improved and faster communication within the healthcare community announced today that in response to customer demand the company is now focusing engineering resources on mobile medical applications for Apple's iOS and Google's Android "Honeycomb" operating systems.
Last week the company introduced its first medical Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) compatible with Apple's smart phones and portable tablets and other devices through the Apple App Store™.
Vice President of Product Development Rafael Rubio said, "We are now working on special interfaces for medical companies that want to run their apps on Apple's iPad™, the Samsung Galaxy and other tablets pouring into the market.
"We are seeing increasing interest from our customers to use our software on smart phones and tablets to make them more productive. For example, our XR-EXpress PACS software can integrate with an existing hospital PACS to add iPad™ access for doctors without any major IT changes. Doctors can use this new interface to facilitate making their rounds with the latest patient information including notes, images and complete patient files," Rubio said.
A recent article from AuntMinnie.com, a well respected professional medical website, cited a new study that shows that Italian radiologists reviewing CT and MR images on smart phones were as accurate as those reading images from PACS workstations. However, it noted that reading from the smaller screen smart phones produced greater eye strain, indicating that the devices are probably best used for consulting rather than primary interpretation.
CEO Dick Govatski said, "Our current apps are not meant to be used for diagnostic readings until we have reviewed the situation with the FDA (Federal Drug Administration). There is no doubt, however, that these devices are going to find multiple and important uses within the medical field. We see tablets and smart phones as a highly promising if not exciting growth segment for our business."
