> Enable the cost-efficiently creation of apps to exchange data with EHRs
Type proposer: Healthcare organization
There is an increasing interest in Healthcare organizations with Electronic Health Records (EHR) to provide their staff with apps that help them to interact with the EHR via mobile devices. The objective is to facilitate Healthcare professionals and other staff a more convenient consumption and incorporation of clinical data, usually at the point of care.
For the Information Technology department, the app development and deployment cycles should be relatively fast, and take care of usability, security, privacy, multiplatform deployment (for Bring Your Own Device policies) and version control.
Some big EHR vendors like Cerner incorporate this kind of functionality via its solutions Skybox Mobility and Selene Mobility (the Selene EHR was acquired from Siemens in 2014). However other vendors and, specially, healthcare organizations that have developed their own EHR system may not have the skills or the resources to manage the systematic development and deployment of mobility, considering also the rapid evolution of this technology. Therefore, it would be useful for them to connect with a 3rd party providers that facilitate the development and deployment of apps to interact with the EHR data.
This need is related to the request to manage the pool of mobile resources in Healthcare organizations, where several mature Enterprise Mobility Management solutions have been referenced. The difference is that the solution requested here should also support the development of the apps, including the secure exchange of data with the EHR. Considering the likely customer target of smaller EHR vendors and Healthcare organizations, cost-efficiency will be a key criterion for acquisition.
