Allscripts entered the mobile applications market several years ago. According to the company's chief information officer, Stanley Crane, the apps run on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch as well as BlackBerry and Android devices.

The company has two iPad products: Sunrise Mobile MD is an acute-care product focused on the things that physicians and nurses need to do while they are taking care of patients in the hospital.

Allscript's Wand, on the other hand, is a native iPad app to help clinicians simultaneously interact with patients and the physician's office. Wand was built, according to Crane, to help nurses check patients' vitals and update medications and allergies. Allscripts is releasing a physician-oriented product in the next few weeks that does complex orders, clinical documentation and charges.

Crane said that what vendors want to avoid is just taking the layout seen on a full-sized laptop screen and making it run in a tiny screen with lousy network connectivity and no keyboard and an inexact mouse. "That's a recipe for disaster," he said.

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.
