So consider the challenge facing physicians who routinely work in several medical institutions. Each institution is likely to have a different electronic health record (EHR) system, and these systems are notoriously cumbersome. EHR systems often do not offer mobile support, so busy physicians, often moving around, must sit at desks in each institution to review patient data from each HER. Further, they cannot get a consolidated view across systems.
What is required is a simple, consistent, mobile interface to any EHR, and the ability to combine patient data from multiple EHR systems.
VitalHub has developed a slick solution, VitalHub Chart, which addresses these needs. Physicians can access consolidated patient data from multiple EHR systems using a mobile tablet.
First they select the patient of interest:
Next time you visit your doctor, look to see if he/she is accessing your health data from their tablet, and if so, from how many systems.
