Home health agencies using Kinnser’s Web-based home health software can now utilize the iPad’s touch screen interface to improve cost effective collaboration and documentation
Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 8, 2010 – Today, home health agencies using Kinnser’s online software solutions can utilize the iPad for point of care documentation and coordination across the continuum of care. By upgrading its Web-based home health software solution Agency Manager™ for the Safari Web browser on the iOS mobile operating system for the iPhone and the iPad, Kinnser is first to provide this unique access to home health agencies, physicians and therapy companies.
Home health agencies nationwide can now choose to use tablet based computers for tasks including nursing notes, OASIS forms, signing orders, sending HIPAA-compliant messages and routing clinical documents from wherever they have Internet access. To access Agency Manager via the iPad, clients can simply visit www.kinnser.com in the Safari Web browser.
“We are committed to ensuring that Kinnser’s Web-based services are accessible from a wide variety of keyboard and touch screen devices,” said Christopher Hester, Chief Executive Officer of Kinnser Software. “While desktops, laptops and netbooks are all common ways to access our services today, it is clear that the iPad is the first of the next generation of more affordable touch-based tablet computers. In the past, a tablet computer cost $2,000, and was out of reach for many agencies. Now with the iPad, an agency can acquire a full featured and easy to use tablet starting at about $500. This provides an additional way for clinicians to use Agency Manager at the point of care.”
According to a June 17, 2010 presentation by Forrester Research analyst Sara Rotman Epps at The Big Money’s “Untethered 2010 Conference”, tablets, including the iPad, will outsell netbook computers by 2012, and desktop computers by 2015. She estimated that tablet computer sales will be 6 percent of overall computer sales in 2010, grow to 18 percent of computer sales in 2012 and make up 23 percent of all computer sales in 2015, which would equal over 20 million tablets estimated to be sold in that year.
