Date:4/25/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- drchrono, creator of the original Electronic Health Record (EHR) iPad app, announced today it received an investment from Box, the secure content sharing platform. The investment, through the Box Innovation Network (/bin) initiative, supports the mobile EHR provider's focus on improving the way people engage and experience healthcare on mobile devices. drchrono will also utilize Box's open cloud storage platform to improve access to electronic medical records and simplify collaborative healthcare.

"Improving accessibility to medical information on mobile devices is our core focus.  Building on Box's open, HIPAA and HITECH compliant platform allows us to create a seamless and secure experience for both physicians and patients," said Michael Nusimow , CEO and co-founder of drchrono. "We appreciate Box's investment in our company and shared vision of addressing critical healthcare challenges."

"The /bin initiative was created to find and support technology companies looking to disrupt traditional on-premise enterprise tools, particularly in highly regulated and data intensive industries, such as healthcare," said Chris Yeh , VP of Platform at Box.  "We believe drchrono is a perfect candidate to fund and partner with because it aligns perfectly with our goal of creating an open ecosystem for offering best-of-breed healthcare applications on the Box platform."

Secure Sharing of Medical Data in the Cloud with Box for drchrono

drchrono on the Box platform is available in the Box OneCloud ecosystem of integrated mobile apps.  As a charter healthcare partner application for Box's healthcare platform, drchrono leverages Box's HIPAA and HITECH compliant storage in a robust way to sync medical data across the cloud.

Physicians can quickly access and share content stored in Box from within a drchrono health record. Medical teams can collaborate on radiology reports, labs and medical records and then share them with patients for easy access from any device.

Physicians can access the full functionality of Box from within a drchrono medical record to:

  • Securely store, access and share files such as reports and large medical videos & images with colleagues and patients
  • Keep medical teams in sync with what content has been shared, previewed or downloaded by collaborators
  • Access, approve and update content from any mobile device to increase practice efficiency – saving physicians time and allowing them to see more patients

Dr. James Andrew Rieger , MD, a physician with 22 years of experience, mentioned, "It is certainly key to have a secure cloud-based EHR, especially for managing protected health information.  I easily save an hour a day by saving medical records to the cloud. Gone are the days of sorting photos at the end of a long clinic day from a camera and then to a patient paper file." Dr. Rieger added, "Cloud accessible photos and videos are invaluable in all medical specialties. For example leg motion in orthopedics, talking in neurology, walking in physical therapy, healing of wounds can all be easily documented fast and stored securely. I'm looking forward to drchrono working with Box."

Daniel Kivatinos , COO and cofounder states, "The end goal of this partnership is to leverage the box platform to create a more seamless experience for physicians and patients when sharing medical information. This is a long term partnership where we can have all practice documents in one place, have advanced referrals, creating a better doctor to doctor sharing tool and to simplify backups." Daniel goes on to say, "Take sharing large videos for example. If a physician has a 10GB Ultrasound video they would like to share, the drchrono EHR interface will allow a doctor to drop that video into Box platform and share it from the cloud. Currently, large file sharing in healthcare is difficult due to storage & security issues. With HIPAA and HITECH compliant cloud storage from Box, this process is greatly simplified."
