Term: PatientKeeper

Description: It started more than 10 years ago with a simple observation: physicians need an easier way to access and work with patient information. Long before the popularization of electronic health records and the advent of Meaningful Use incentives, PatientKeeper is a pioneer, offering physicians a single view of their patients’ information, integrated from multiple systems across a hospital, and easily accessible on computers and mobile devices.

Mobile Platform: Physician adoption of mobile devices has the potential to profoundly impact the practice of clinical medicine. The rapid and deep adoption of smartphones and tablets by physicians has given rise to an entire sub-category of healthcare IT called mHealth.

  • Support the devices physicians use — iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry
  • Give physicians the flexibility to manage their patients’ care from a handheld device
  • Enable physicians to view accurate and up to date lists of patients and their current locations for rounding and daily care management
