InterSystems TrakCare adds mobile capabilities

InterSystems has announced that the InterSystems TrakCare® unified healthcare information system has added a mobile, touchscreen-enabled user interface.

The mobile interface supports streamlined electronic medical record (EMR) workflows and delivers context-rich, concise information wherever and whenever it is needed. Clinical notes can be created with a few swipes and taps, images and barcodes captured via camera, and additional information captured via voice.

United Family Healthcare, China’s largest foreign-invested healthcare provider, is an early adopter of new TrakCare capabilities, Dr. Jenny Shao, Health Information Systems Director said “UFH is using TrakCare’s new mobile capabilities to promote efficiencies at the new Guangzhou United Family Hospital. Patients are able to do self registration using iPads with the receptionist, and this speeds up the admission process.”

According to Zebra Technologies’ global 2022 Hospital Vision Study, the percentage of nurses using mobile devices at the bedside will grow from 65 percent in 2017 to 97 percent in 2022. Similar increases in mobile device usage is expected among doctors, pharmacists and lab technicians.

“More than 20 years ago, InterSystems TrakCare became one of the first web-based healthcare information systems,” said Christine Chapman, Vice President for TrakCare at InterSystems. “With a rich mobile-enabled user interface, TrakCare is built for better decisions in the mobile era, making it easy for clinicians to capture and access data, and manage clinical workflows, at the point of care.”
