As part of its constant efforts to offer one of the most comprehensive suites of electronic health records, practice management and revenue cycle solutions on the market, Medical Transcription Billing, Corp. (NASDAQ: MTBC; MTBCP) provides its customers with a comprehensive suite of mobile health applications designed to significantly improve Patient engagement and give practices secure and consistent access to real-time information. The native mobile applications offered under the mHealth umbrella are designed for a wide variety of tablet devices and smartphones and are fully integrated with the company’s core suite of services and products.
One of the most inclusive apps is MTBC’s Personal Health Record (PHR) for Android and iOS devices. This app affords any medical practice’s patients direct access to their medical history and detailed health info, including lab reports, bills or claims. The PHR is safe and easy to use and also allows patients to schedule appointments and view their appointment history wherever they are and whenever they want to. Key features of the app include: flexibility in making appointments; easy access to a patient’s medical history, medications and immunization info; ability to process payments and track payment history; secure messaging between patients and their doctors; and the ability of having patients directly edit their personal details such as address or phone number.
Another app that gives practices access to clinical information anywhere and anytime is the MTBC iEHR – Electronic Health Records app for iOS, Android and Amazon devices. The app has a highly intuitive interface providing superior flexibility and functionality so as to access critical information at any time and subsequently improve safety and quality of patient care. With the iEHR, practices and patients can view upcoming and past appointments, review complete patient medical history including medication and hospitalization records, create and sign patient charts at the point of care, send prescriptions straight to pharmacy and create and submit bills.
Electronic prescribing of medication can actually improve patient safety and reduce deaths caused by possible prescription errors, as various studies have shown. With this in mind, MTBC developed the iRx app. Compatible with both Android and iOS devices, this app allows doctors to prescribe medications quickly using their smartphones or any other smart device. The app enables medical professionals to review any drug contraindications including interactions with other drugs, or whether they are right for a specific patient based on factors such as medical history, allergies, immunizations, and others. iRx also offers access to chart summaries and the possibility of viewing and replying to patient or office messages.
Practices struggling with rising administrative costs might be interested in the iCheckIn application for iPad – an app designed to automate and greatly simplify the patient check-in process. Offering more self-service options to patients, this application also allows for safe verification of insurance information and secure credit card payments. It enables patients to update their own information and review their payment history and balance, thus helping a practice achieve higher operational efficiency while saving time and money.
