Mobile EHR as a Solution for EHR Downtime | EMR and HIPAA

Mobile EHR as a Solution for EHR Downtime | EMR and HIPAA | Medical Practice Compliance|Continuity|Resilience|Risk | Scoop.it

When you think about EHR downtime, the mobile is a perfect solution. The device can run applications without any internet connectivity. Plus, it can endure power outages better than any other computing device. I’m sure many of you are wondering how the EHR data makes it to the mobile if there’s no internet connectivity.

 

This is what I think makes the Mitochon mobile EHR app so unique. They securely cache your top patient info on your mobile phone so that if your mobile has no connectivity, then the data is still there and available to you. Sure, it’s not the full EHR data and you can’t do all the functionality of your full EHR, but in an emergency situation (ie. EMR downtime) it could be incredibly valuable to have the clinical summary information available to you in your mobile app. Not to mention if you’re at a hospital doing rounds and the big cement wall hospital makes it so you have no cell signal.
