Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Apollo, the leading provider of clinical multimedia management solutions, today announced that it has launched its mobile app for Apollo EPMM® (Enterprise Patient Multimedia Manager). Healthcare professionals can use Apollo Mobile™ to capture pictures, video, and audio securely from a smart phone or tablet. This enables safe and secure viewing and management of patient clinical multimedia while securely and easily incorporating it into the patient medical record via Apollo EPMM.
"The reality is that your employees are using their mobile devices to capture patient information. This is happening everywhere, regardless of institutional policy, because it makes the clinician’s job easier. Apollo Mobile provides a secure and safe method to use these mobile devices on site,” said Mark Newburger, Apollo CEO. “Apollo Mobile is easy to use and enables the healthcare enterprise to have a strong, secure, and accepted BYOD policy while your staff continues to work effectively and efficiently.“
With Apollo Mobile, everyone on the healthcare team can capture pictures, video, or audio via their mobile devices and immediately upload and use them in their practice. Apollo Mobile supports bar code scanning on the mobile device. Simply scan the patient bar code and take a picture. It is immediately uploaded to the patient’s record and deleted from mobile device. This avoids the high-risk activity of storing images directly on mobile devices and ensures that the real-time activities that are happening every day - whether at a patient’s bedside, in a medical office, or in a lab environment - are managed and protected by the enterprise.
According to Newburger, "The explosion of mobile devices in today's medical practices presents a real threat to patient privacy, safety, and security. All it takes is one unsecured mobile device to put an enterprise at risk. As an add-on to Apollo EPMM, Apollo Mobile provides ample security and proof of policy compliance."
Adding the mobile app to Apollo EPMM means providers will now have easy and secure access to all the images captured on their mobile devices in the way that works best for them. Apollo EPMM manages and stores standard and proprietary digital multimedia from throughout the enterprise in their native formats.
Apollo Mobile is available on the Apple App Store (iOS) and Google play (Android).
Apollo has been a leader in providing healthcare enterprises with quality digital imaging and multimedia workflow solutions since 1993. Apollo EPMM is the only proven enterprise solution that enables all providers to collaborate for the benefit of the patient by providing a 360-degree view of patients’ clinical multimedia and health data. Using the provider's own best practices more efficiently, Apollo EPMM brings the ability to collaborate with clinical multimedia across the entire provider team in a cost-effective, flexible, compliant and secure environment. The result is a more integrated clinical team and improved patient outcomes at a lower cost. While others promise easy, secure, specialty-specific access throughout the enterprise, Apollo delivers this today at marquee institutions throughout the United States and Canada.
