Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
echoBase, Inc., a leader in innovative software technologies, announced today a partnership with Mann Ear, Nose & Throat to provide unfettered access to more than 10,000 patients’ medical histories including medications, past hospitalizations, procedures, allergies, and more, on their mobile devices using echoBase’s Resonate software platform. Mann’s patients will now have the unique experience of securely carrying their medical history on their iOS mobile devices at all times without relying on a constant internet or Wi-Fi connection.
The benefit for patients and their caregivers (e.g. parents, guardians, etc.) is increased accuracy with which these patients can provide historical data to other doctors and specialists, leading to increased efficiency and safety and positively impacting medical outcomes. Clinicians now have access to patients’ data at all times, even if the mobile device cannot communicate to the EMR (Electronic Medical Records) system, improving both the patient experience and patient safety by eliminating obstacles to the physician.
“echoBase is leveraging technologies and techniques that have been proven in various industries for decades in order to provide this capability. For years new user interface paradigms have meant ramping up engineering organizations, learning new skills, and undertaking large coding projects in order to provide what clients are asking for. Now Resonate provides that same functionality in a turnkey solution,” said Brent J. Miller, President and co-founder of echoBase.
“This technology [Resonate] gives my partners and myself a toolset that allows us to efficiently practice medicine in a fashion that is most productive to each of us individually,” says Dr. Jared Spector, one of the principal physicians at Mann. “Partnering with echoBase allows us to access our electronic medical records in ways we’d only dreamed of previously, dramatically increasing our efficiency. Providing our patients with access to their own records available at all times on their mobile devices also helps us to keep them involved in their own care which leads to better overall health and gives us a differentiator relative to other practices.”
Having synchronized the records of Mann ENT’s more than 10,000 patients, Mann now plans to combine their EMR application with echoBase’s Resonate technology in order to offer a best-of-breed medical records solution to the healthcare community that provides ubiquitous access to data for viewing and input with an elegant, customizable user interface.
echoBase is committed to changing the paradigm of application software development and maintenance in such a way that reduces development cost, increases flexibility, increases speed to market, and limits the need to hire or train new skill sets in order to leverage the latest user interface devices with both new and existing applications. echoBase has groundbreaking technology with valuable applications across a variety of industries, allowing alternative user interfaces, such as native mobile device interfaces, to be quickly and easily added to almost any application without any additional software development.
