AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Opus Healthcare Solutions, Inc., a leading national provider of clinical information systems, announced today that OpusMobility(R) runs on the Google G1 Android phone.
OpusMobility(R) is able to run via secure cellular or Wi-Fi connections on all smart phone devices now provided by U.S. carriers with a standard data plan and Web browser. This includes the Google G1 Android, the Apple iPhone and devices from Blackberry, Microsoft, Motorola, LG and Nokia. This widespread device compatibility is possible because OpusMobility(R) uses a Web-based architecture.
The system's Web-based architecture frees hospital IT departments from having to become smart phone experts for each and every new device that is purchased by medical staff. This type of IT support request will increase in the future and a standardized Web-based application helps to speed training and reduce such calls as the concept of Web-browser usage, on smart phones and other devices, becomes commonplace in clinical settings.
By using Web-based architecture, Opus Healthcare focuses on improvements in software functionality and does not have to spend time on specialized development for each new smart phone device that is introduced.
The OpusMobility(R) software enables physicians, nurses and other clinicians to instantly access a hospital information system and navigate quickly through a series of pull-down screens that contain different types of patient information. The system provides secure access to a wide range of information from a hospital or lab including test results, medication updates, patient allergies, nursing notes and transcribed information. This enables users to quickly move through different data sets without having to move from application to application or use multiple passwords.
Added benefits of OpusMobility(R) include real-time, accurate data with no required synchronization or download of patient data to the device, helping to avoid a possible HIPAA security violation (e.g. when a phone is lost). Also, the bundled OpusCDR(R) clinical data repository provides for disaster recovery should the hospital's existing clinical system experience downtime, and the bundled Web-based physician portal OpusMD(R) enables remote access by physicians at their home or office desktops.
"Smart phones will play a major role in the future of mobile clinical information systems. Clinicians want one device that they can use both in the hospital and on the road," said Fred Beck, President, Opus Healthcare Solutions.
The OpusMobility(R) software can be purchased as part of the OpusClinicalSuite(R), one of the few truly Web-based clinical information systems available. Or, it can be purchased as a stand-alone application, integrated with a hospital's current electronic medical record system.
