Nimble, a new comprehensive EMR application designed and developed specifically for the iPad, hit the market Tuesday with the aim of allowing docs to provide meaningful care – at the point of care.
St. Louis, Mo.-based ClearPractice, a provider of web-based electronic medical record and revenue cycle management software for ambulatory care physicians, worked with Apple to optimize the app’s interface “to create a new user experience for docs,” said ClearPractice President Joel Andersen.
Company officials tout Nimble as the first comprehensive EMR solution developed in iOS to run natively on the iPad. The product connects either through WiFi or 3G to the ClearPractice cloud so no data is stored on the device making it secure and HIPAA compliant.
Company officials said the goal of Nimble is to break down workflow burdens for doctors by providing them with technology that is lightweight, has a long battery life (10 hours) and doesn’t need to be rebooted.
