A year ago we wrote about an aspiring new patient management platform designed to allow practices of different sizes to easily manage patients lists and for clinicians to communicate regarding their care.
Today Listrunner is announcing a mobile app that offers powerful team coordination capabilities without a complicated infrastructure or the costs that are normally associated with introducing new software
The app is completely free and a practice can simply download it to everyone’s phones and just start using it. The folks at Listrunner tout that it’s the only fully free clinical team management service you can download and start using within about five minutes. Moreover, you may not even have to get your IT staff involved as there’s no infrastructure to setup or anything to do that a modern doc can’t do all on one’s own.
The app is HIPAA compliant and utilizes two factor authentication during login. Shared data is kept in the cloud and individual phones automatically send updates to it and are refreshed with new data as needed. Internally, all data kept on the phone or tablet is fully encrypted preventing access even if the device is lost or stolen. Further guaranteeing privacy of information, Listrunner accepts liability in its terms and conditions in case a data breach does occur due to its software, a concept that’s new to us but surely welcome. In addition to its free service, Listrunner has an enterprise edition for hospitals and clinics that can integrate with their existing systems.
Unlike many other hospital apps that require a network connection, Listrunner will continue working even offline. This can be quite convenient since even highly networked hospitals have dead spots where the wifi signal is weak. You can continue updating any information on the app and it will automatically upload and update it on phones of the rest of the group once connectivity is reestablished.
The new app has already received considerable testing in the field, having been adopted for use at Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital as well as community clinics in South Africa.
Here’s a quick demo video showing off how the app works:
