Power Chart Touch (PCT) is Cerner's mobile platform for ambulatory and inpatient settings. "We first designed it for [an iPad] iOS operating system with plans to add Android in the future. And we also support the iOS smartphone with similar work flows and capabilities," said John Gresham, VP of integrated solutions and technology group. PCT is built as a native iOS app deployed through the App Store.

Gresham said that he expects the Android platform to expand and that Cerner will be able to move into that market very quickly. "We will support Android first in the nursing space and we will leverage those capabilities back into our physician experiences."

Cerner has also partnered with Nuance for use of its cloud-based Dragon voice recognition system, believing that such capability is critical in a mobile EHR. He's seeing a lot of adoption of that technology because it cuts transcription costs for hospitals.

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.
