Urologists and Surgeons to benefit from new technology

LIVINGSTON, N.J., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- meridianEMR, Inc., a leading provider of electronic health records and advanced healthcare analytics for urology and surgical practices has announced the release of its new native iPhone application – mMobile. Built upon the Apple iPhone Operating System, the application allows providers to access, update, and synchronize patient medical data with their office servers or meridianEMR's exclusive mEHRxChange network. mMobile will be available at the Apple iTunes store.

According to Michael Custode, Chief Executive Officer of meridianEMR, Inc., the medical community is quickly discovering the value of mobile technology in relation to their practice.

"Through leveraging of Apple's mobile technology, meridianEMR has created a new point of entry for physicians. We looked at early versions of iPhone applications that were web based and decided that a true iPhone application, our application, would provide a physician with functionality regardless of connectivity," said Custode.

mMobile offers providers a suite of options such as full hospital census, hospital rounding, capture of all CPT, ICD, and other billing information required for hospital billing, adding of new patients or consults as needed, viewing of patient medical data, as well as full synchronization and refreshing of data whenever the network is available. mMobile has been designed to be 100% operational regardless of internet connectivity, unlike web-based applications that require a full-time internet connection for use.

"meridianEMR was able to succeed where other EHR companies have failed. We have been discovering there are too many questions with too few answers when it comes to the claims of our competitors and that our native application is a true application in the sense that it delivers what physicians want and that's to remain productive. No shortcuts were taken. We listened and mMobile is the result," added Custode.

meridianEMR will be offering "live" demonstrations of their urology specific products at the American Urological Association (AUA) 2010 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, May 29 - June 1, at booth #3335. Representatives from meridianEMR will be on-hand to answer all questions on mMobile and all other components of their urologyEHR.

"Our booth at this year's AUA Meeting will be fully integrated allowing for Urologists to get a hands-on feel and demonstration of all our technology offerings. The amazing aspect of our offerings is that we are setting the standard of EMR excellence by not only meeting the needs of today's Urologist, but by positioning them for a stronger tomorrow with analytics, interoperability and meeting the government's criteria for meaningful use," adds Custode.
