Portland, OR, October 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Today, HealthSaaS, a leader in the Health 2.0 movement, and Happtique, Inc., the leader in application stores for hospitals and other healthcare organizations, announced an alliance to create a custom app catalog of mobile health applications that will connect patients through their mobile phones and tablets to their healthcare organizations and ultimately to their physicians via a secure network and framework.
The new connected health app catalog will offer a suite of mobile apps for both patients and physicians which enables patients to perform remote self-monitoring of their health. The HealthSaaS Connected Outcomes Framework will capture physician-requested data collected by patients on their mobile devices onto a secured, white-labeled provider portal and optionally into backend Electronic Health Record systems (EHRs). This platform-agnostic solution will bring patient data into the heart of clinical practice information flow where it can have a profound and positive impact on outcomes. HealthSaaS will provide the custom connected apps while Happtique will provide the means for healthcare providers to manage and control the deployment of the apps to their patients.
Frank Ille, CEO, of HealthSaaS said, "We are excited to announce this innovative alliance with Happtique because of the impact that it can make on our healthcare system. By using our HealthSaaS Connected Outcomes Framework, it is easy to pass patient collected data to any EHR system. Its use enables clinicians to be more proactive in the monitoring of treatment regimens while improving patient outcomes and lowering costs."
Corey Ackerman, President, Happtique said “We are thrilled to be working with HealthSaaS to offer custom, connected mobile applications to our healthcare enterprise customers. Solutions like these represent the holy grail of health apps, and Happtique is excited to help providers manage their deployment.”
HealthSaaS is currently arranging trials for the use of the new technology with selected hospitals, and practices.
