SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PatientSafe Solutions, a leader in mobile clinical communication and workflow solutions for the healthcare enterprise, announced today its integration with Epic. The PatientTouch app is now available in the Epic App Orchard, a platform where developers can access Epic’s application programming interfaces (APIs) and post their app for Epic community members to evaluate and consider. As an App Orchard contributor, PatientSafe Solutions will use Epic’s APIs to ensure tight integration and smooth interoperability for its customers.
“By fully embracing Epic’s interoperability and technical standards our developers will be able to ensure interoperability between the Epic EHR and our smartphone app to deliver real-time clinical information from the Epic platform to the care team’s secure mobile devices,” said Si Luo, president and CEO, Patient Safe Solutions. “There are many communication solutions out there, but only a few that can truly leverage the data in the EHR and update patient-centric-context in-app from a smartphone while ‘on the move’ — the way clinicians work. We want to bring this value to Epic customers.”
The PatientTouch app aggregates and synthesizes patient and care team data from the core EMR and ancillary systems to coordinate care team collaboration and ensure timely intervention for sepsis response, anti-microbial stewardship management, falls prevention, and more.
“Our goal is always to bring real-time, relevant clinical data from Epic and other systems directly to the care team while they are the go,” said Steve Baum, Vice President Product Development, PatientSafe Solutions. “As a part of the Epic development community, PatientSafe can deliver proven interoperability and enhanced user experience for our Epic customers.”
