Yep, there’s an EMR app for the iPhone

Healthcare IT Consultant Blog: “It appears Caretools has thought of this, offering its iChart EHR for the iPhone, immediately available to anyone on the iTunes store. Before you scoff that it must be a limited-functionality, toy of an EHR, consider this: it offers ePrescribing, transmission of lab reports, ICD9-compliant billing code functionality, and a sophisticated menu system to quickly create SOAP and Procedure notes. It might not be CCHIT-certified (yet) or guarantee your eligibility for “meaningful use” funding, but at such a low price point, it could be a great way to get your physicians comfortable with standard EHR functionality.” – I took a quick jaunt over to the Caretools website and gave the application the once over. I think it’s pretty cool. At a mere $139.99 it’s about the cheapest EMR system you’re going to find on the market. You can read more about it at the iPhone Life website. Next thing you know, you’ll even be able to make phone calls directly from your iPhone.
