    • A Healthcare Mobile App Case StudyMOBILE HOSPITALMANAGEMENT SYSTEM –iPad/iPhone
    • A Healthcare Mobile App Case Study 02Client Overview and BackgroundThe Client is a leading EMR/ EHR technology service provider in the United States.RapidValue partnered with a healthcare IT Solutions Company to develop an iPad/iPhone based mHMS(mobile hospital management system). This application allows physicians, patients and caregiver teams tointeract with each other and facilitate healthcare operations from anywhere at any time.AT&T
    • 03Business RequirementsThe client wanted to implement an end-to-end mobile hospital management system for their staff,physicians and patients. Some of the key objectives were:The client was looking for new methods to improve patient care and enhance operational efficiency at thehospital, with optimal usage of new technologies at the same time keeping the cost low.The current system of updating and monitoring patient records during doctors daily visit throughpaper-based system reduced productivity of physicians considerably. Moreover, migrating paper work into acentralized data repository was time consuming and required additional resources. This method also createdineffective communication within the hospital between staff, physicians and caregivers.Since the usage of iPad/iPhone is high amongst the doctors and hospital staff in the U.S., RapidValueproposed an iOS based mobile hospital management application. This mobile app would adhere to hospital’sbusiness rules, help streamline the business flow and improve overall efficiency.RapidValue built and deployed an iPad/iPhone based mHMS solution that integrated with existing back endHMS and other third party systems to retrieve and control data in a secure manner.Whenever a patient is admitted to a hospital, using the mHMS application the hospital staff is notified aboutpatients arrival, assignment of nurse/HCPs and details of the room.The application consists of followingelements with restricted access to functionality based on the user type.– Enable Health Care Physicians (HCPs) to access patient health records (EHR) on a real-time basis– Connect and retrieve data from all healthcare departments that are necessary for doctors to analyze– HIPAA compliant secure login interface and encrypted transfer of patient data– Establish a mode of communication between doctors/nurses and patients whenever necessary– Alert patients for specific medication on timely basis, pending laboratory tests, frequent check-upswith doctors– Enable hospital staff to receive information on patient’s discharge and track real-time bed statusChallenges and Our ApproachSolution OverviewA Healthcare Mobile App Case Study
