Comprehensive EMR for the iPad Demonstrates the Point of Care is Now Everywhere
ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ClearPractice, a provider of innovative software solutions for physicians and medical groups, reports Nimble, its electronic medical record (EMR) application for iPad, is receiving overwhelmingly positive response from physicians and healthcare services organizations. Nimble, now available for download via the App Store at www.itunes.com/appstore, meets the fast growing interest amongst physicians to use iPad as their primary computing device. Now, physicians can instantly access the critical information and patient care tools they need, regardless of where or when that care takes place.
Dr. Kenneth Luckay of Luckay Doc, LLC in Troutville, VA says, “The problem with other technology solutions is that physicians are facing their computer or laptop instead of the patient. Nimble increases my interaction with patients. I can sit beside them to show anatomical patterns and pictures, demonstrating what's going on in their bodies. We can go through prescription lists together. The care I am now able to provide is of much higher quality, fostering a better doctor-patient relationship.”
With reports showing that more than 20% of U.S.-based physicians planned to purchase an iPad before its launch, ClearPractice set out to make Nimble a game changing experience in how an EMR application can improve the interaction between doctors and patients. Nimble was designed to run natively on the device, enabling it to exploit the rich functionality, ease of use and mobility the iOS platform provides.
According to Dr. Lianna Lawson of Lawson Family Medicine and Aesthetics in Daleville, VA, “I’m not very tech savvy, so it’s great that Nimble is so intuitive to use. Even before my training session wrapped up I was checking messages and refilling prescriptions with Nimble. My nurses are even able to use it easily with minimal training. The best part for me is that Nimble so closely resembles my paper record experience, requiring little adjustment.”
“Nimble is quickly becoming attractive to physician practices, medical students and even hospitals. Through its work developing this application and future integrations of the product with the capabilities of its sister companies, ClearPractice is positioning itself to deliver technology solutions in Accountable Care Organizations and those moving toward the medical home model of care,” says Brian Ahier, Health IT Evangelist at Mid-Columbia Medical Center, Chairman at HITOC Technology Workgroup in Portland, OR, and leading health care technology blogger.
"You can hear the passion behind ClearPractice executives when they talk about the real changes they want to make in medicine,” said Dr. Felasfa Wodajo, Medical Director of Musculoskeletal Oncology at Inova Fairfax Hospital and Senior Editor at iMedicalApps.com. “It is far more than just producing a nice EMR. With Nimble, they have created a window into a future where physicians are truly mobile and freed, rather than shackled, by technology.”
Joel Andersen, President of ClearPractice adds, “Nimble has garnered unprecedented demand since its launch just a few weeks ago. The media attention and requests for demos from physicians, hospitals and other health care organizations have exceeded our expectations, confirming that we’ve delivered the right product on the right platform at the right time.”
Nimble is a comprehensive electronic medical record solution that includes all the features of the company's existing SaaS EMR solution including scheduling, charting, prescribing, inpatient rounds, lab review/ordering, messaging and more.
