IMS MAXIMSAccording to our latest research report, Fastest Growing and Most Successful Health and Medical Apps, there were about 250 apps that fall into the “Operational & EMR apps” subcategory of iPhone medical apps as of September 2010. These are apps intended for use by care providers, including pager replacement apps, charge capture apps, electronic medical records apps, patient logbooks, schedulers and remote practice management apps. While many of these apps are free feature add-ons for enterprise systems, with an average price of $3.84, this group was still the fourth priciest group of health and medical apps found in Apple’s AppStore.

    Recent data suggests that the most common cause of security breaches in health care involve theft or loss of laptop computers. As smartphones continue to spread like wildfire in health care, there’s a risk that loss of these devices will become a new, perhaps very large problem when it comes to maintaining patient privacy. Any provider that signs up for, and begins using one of the devices listed in this article needs to be fully confident that they are abiding by HIPAA rules before going live. The same applies to the vendors themselves. Ideally, the next review of this subject would describe how the apps work to protect protected health information.

    It is amazing to see how mobile technology, such as iphones and ipads has influenced the way we use electronic health records. We just released a press release stating Practice Fusion, a free, web-based EHR, now works with the ipad and other android tablets. While other competitors have released such news earlier, we waited to make sure we could have a integration that was completely HIPAA compliant. Because data is so precious, our mobile solutions should be just as secure if not more than our web-based solutions.

    I would add Greenway’s PrimeMobile iPhone App. Having looked at many EMR systems, I think I can safely say that Greenway has a top notch system (better than some of the so called ‘major’ players.)
