March 31, 2015 — Mobile Heartbeat announced it will be demonstrating its MH-CURE communication and workflow smartphone application at the 2015 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference, April 13-15, 2015, in Chicago.

MH-CURE (Clinical Urgent REsponse) is a secure application enabling clinical communications, patient-specific workflow and a real-time clinical team directory connecting all members of a patient’s care team. The app provides patient care teams — including nurses, physicians and technicians — with secure, single smartphone access to all clinical communications, pertinent patient information and lab data.

MH-CURE features secure, HIPAA-compliant texting; staff assignment and dynamic role capabilities; and a Camera Module for enabling care team members to take and view photos for documenting patient wounds, abuse cases and patient valuables held in the hospital. With MH-CURE, care team members know who else is on the team for each patient and can view the availability and location of other team members at all times. The app enables efficient delivery of clinical data and communications to users on-site, off-site and at multiple locations to ensure timely patient care decisions and response. Care team members have the choice of using their own smartphone  or sharing hospital-supplied devices.

HIMSS15 attendees can learn even more about MH-CURE by attending Yale New Haven Hospital’s session entitled, “Improving Clinical Communications & Workflow via Smartphones,” taking place April 15. The speakers will be Allen Hsiao, M.D., associate chief medical information officer, and Ed Fisher, vice president/CTO, at Yale New Haven Hospital. They will share their experience and success with implementing and using the MH-CURE smartphone application.
