mHealth Apps: Evidence-Based Analysis at the Point of Care
- April 30, 2013
Gabriel Perna – Healthcare Informatics
In part two of a four-part interview series with mobile health (mHealth) app developers, Healthcare Informatics Associate Editor Gabriel Perna speaks with Jack Olexy, co-founder and vice president of information technology of eDoc4u.
The app, which was chosen by Allscripts (Chigaco, Ill.) as one of the 15 finalists for its open app challenge, provides evidence-based clinical analysis at the point of care for both patients and physicians. In a population health management environment, the information this app can provide is critical to closing the gaps in a patient’s care.
If eDoc4u wins the Allscripts’ app challenge, it will take home a $250,000 prize. The app will be judged on usability, integration, ease-of-installation, and other facets. Below are excerpts from the second interview in this series of four. Part 1 can be found here.
