Practice Fusion, the free, ad-supported web-based EMR today has showed a glimpse of their upcoming native mobile app for iOS and Android. While the company recently released a remote client for tablets that connects to the desktop version, a native app is of course a far more ideal solution. The app, which is currently in private beta testing, was shown at the Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco. The app provides secure mobile access to patient records over both cell and WiFi connections and also allows reviewing of lab results, responding to prescription refill requests, HIPAA-compliant messaging and contacting patients.
Judging by the screenshots, this has one of the better user interfaces we have seen on mobile devices and we are eager to see what the end-result will be. The app will be free and ad-supported just like the full EMR, and the first public release is planned for early 2012.
