New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) July 11, 2014
Clinicate, a new clinical file-sharing platform designed to promote clinical education and awareness, launches today in New York City at a major health technology conference. Clinicians can securely share knowledge and medical instructions through the Clinicate web and mobile applications. Any file, image, or video can now be uploaded, shared, received, and forwarded to healthcare providers, patients, and their caregivers. The platform will debut today at The Open Forum 2014, an annual event for ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialists and other providers focused on exploring new technologies and their immediate clinical applications.
Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), health information must be carefully safeguarded to insure the confidentiality and integrity of patient information. Clinicate is designed to offer tools that help healthcare providers communicate care instructions and other helpful clinical information in a secure and compliant manner within this complex regulatory environment.
“Being able to communicate efficiently with my colleagues and patients is essential to my practice” says Dr. Ray Weiss, ENT surgeon and co-founder of FIERO and The Open Forum. “Clinicate allows me to easily do this using my iPad® and in full HIPAA compliance.”
Based within the New Orleans BioInnovation Center incubator, Clinicate was founded by healthcare industry experts and consultants who aim to advance clinical communication. The digital health platform is available for immediate use on the web and on iOS and Android mobile devices. Interested users can sign up for free access today by going to http://www.clinicate.com.
