Mobile Image Capture
Innovations in digital camera and smartphones technologies have raised concerns for breaches in patient privacy compliance. Our client, a regional health care system, had a need to efficiently capture photos that could securely be transferred into their EMR.
Summary of Our Solution
Vertical Systems developed a healthcare application that allows clinicians to scan a barcode that captures patient identification information, then allows the capture of a patient photo, and sends the photographs securely to their EMR system securely over a wireless network in one easy step. Users no longer had to handle SD cards, deal with file attachments, or transfer files between multiple devices, all of which could lead to patient privacy breach.
