BOSTON, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Records Institute introduces today the Center for Cell Phone Applications in Healthcare (C-PAHC), a membership-based organization that will study and advocate the advancement of cell phone applications in healthcare.
C-PAHC envisions the development of a range of healthcare applications on cell phones and cites them as the future conduit of interoperability for essential health information. As the natural successor to the Mobile Healthcare Alliance, C-PAHC will work with developers to encourage and coordinate these developments.
According to C-PAHC executive director C. Peter Waegemann, "A healthcare revolution is on the horizon. The new capabilities of modern cell phones, smart phones, PDAs, and other mobile devices are creating extraordinary new possibilities for healthcare. C-PAHC will be the premier organization to study and advocate these changes."
"C-PAHC will become the international center and market place where interested parties can learn what is going on in the field of cell phones in healthcare," states Waegemann. "C-PAHC will identify applications for which solutions are currently developed and available, as well as those under development. In face-to-face meetings and conference calls, it will provide a neutral platform for developers, healthcare planners, health informatics professionals, healthcare professionals and others to discuss common interests."
