Specialty Practice and ASC Efficienty Gains with iPad #mHealth

Today is the last day of the 2nd International mHealth Networking Conference. As a physician champion for the HCPLive Network, I'm excited to blog about some of the highlights from this meeting. You can also follow updates about the mHealth Networking Conference on

I attended a session titled, "Specialty Practice and ASC Efficienty Gains with iPad and Other Devices." The presenter was Josh Way, CIO of Coastal Orthopedics & Sports Medicine/Pain Management. He spoke about the way his specialty group is leveraging mobile devices in their practice and ambulatory surgery center. They're actively using devices like the iPhone and iPad to improve efficiencies in the workplace.

They're using the NextGen electronic health record (EHR). They're using NextGen for patient records. They're also using Integrated Document Solutions (IDS) for workflow management (dictating/transcribing), ePrescribing, CRM, report creation and signature, and eForms. With the iPad, physicians and surgeons are using voice recognition and they're dictating into forms that get integrated into NextGen. They're using the following supporting mobile technology: ConnectWise Mobile

Are you ready to leverage mobile devices into your clinical workflow?
