Meditech offers customers a Web-based approach to mobile EHRs with its Mobile Rounding application. Because it is device agnostic, it's available no matter where the trend in technology goes.

A Web-based rounding list for mobile devices lets physicians access to up-to-date patient information from smartphones, including the iPhone and Windows-based mobile devices. Mobile rounding lists, according to Meditech officials, are designed to plainly present the most relevant patient information, as well as make the most effective use of the handheld display. In addition, physicians have the ability to view real-time information from the patient's medical record. They can also document evaluation and management information while making rounds.

Meditech software works with handheld scanning technology. That allows clinicians to perform a multitude of tasks, including bedside verification, charge capture and materials management stocking, using digital assistants.

re: 9 Mobile EHRs Fight For Doctors' Attention
While it's nice that EHRs are focusing on user experience and making mobile EHRs to allow doctors to use their systems easier, I'm still a little hesitent to recommend or use mobile platforms. It's sitll a little premature in the healthcare security game to be branching out into mobile platforms in my opinion.
