Qbase LLC, a leading provider of information technology services, business intelligence solutions, and geographic search technologies, is pleased to announce that the Defense Strategies Institute has selected the Qbase Homeless REACH mobile application as the recipient of the 2013 Innovation at the Edge Achievement Award for Best Implementation in Mobile Healthcare. This year’s award winners were announced at the DoD/VA iEHR Summit which took place September 30 in Washington, DC at the Carnegie Library.
The DSI iEHR & HIE Awards recognize significant contributions and achievements of those employing innovative concepts in health IT that enhance the quality of healthcare throughout DoD and VA. The Innovation at the Edge award recognized Qbase for their outstanding contribution to the advancement of mobile technologies that benefit the healthcare community at large.
“Qbase is greatly honored to be chosen for this award,” said Qbase Senior Vice President, Gary Sofo. “As a technology organization, it’s very rewarding for us to have the opportunity to focus our development energies on innovative applications that have a direct impact on serving the needs of our nation’s homeless population.”
Accessible on the web, smart phones and tablet devices, Qbase Homeless REACH is a flexible application that enables case workers and other social support staff that care for the homeless to quickly and easily find essential services such as shelters, soup kitchens, counseling, employment, VA hospitals, among other vital services all within their immediate proximity.
“Based on the user’s location, Qbase Homeless REACH provides real-time information about local services and resources for the homeless directly from mobile devices or the web,” explained Josh Temkin, Vice President of Healthcare at Qbase. “Our initial application imported and geoencoded over 100,000 distinct points of interest including locations for shelters, facilities, healthcare, mental healthcare, kitchens/food banks, legal services, and transportation services. We are already working to expand that reach with our next version, and subsequent releases.”
Qbase Homeless REACH can be accessed here, or can be downloaded for free from Apple iTunes or Google Play.
