New Capability Responds to Growing Demand by Physicians Who Rely Heavily on Their Mobile Devices
NANUET, N.Y. — iMedicor, a Vemics Company (OTCBB: VMCI), today announced that it has entered into an agreement with myLEADERBOARD, Inc. to complete the development of a mobile application of its online communications platform, responding to the growing demand by physicians who rely heavily on their handheld devices to deliver a higher quality of care to their patients. The application will be available at no cost through the iMedicor portal.
“iMedicor is working with myLEADERBOARD to deliver this new functionality within 60-90 days,” said iMedicor CEO Fred Zolla. “According to Manhattan Research, over 64% of all physicians use mobile devices such as an iPhone and / or BlackBerry in their daily practices, up 20% between 2008 and 2009. We look forward to integrating these and other proven mobile applications to enhance iMedicor’s ability to support physician workflow.”
iMedicor is the market’s leading HIPAA-compliant solution for interoperable medical information transfer that is offered at no cost to physicians, healthcare providers, and patients. Within iMedicor, health information can be exchanged across disparate EMR’s to communicate, collaborate and exchange medical records for referrals and patient communications. iMedicor provides access to CME (Continuing Medical Education) product-specific educational resources, and to electronic prescription ordering and refills.
“We’re very pleased to be able to leverage our proprietary mobile platform and technology to support iMedicor’s plan to expand its unique services by offering mobile applications,” said myLEADERBOARD CEO John Geary.
The iMedicor portal operates via secure messaging specifically designed to complement clinical workflow, and it delivers on the Obama Administration’s call for an interoperable health information infrastructure that allows healthcare providers to become interconnected. “We believe adding mobile functionality to iMedicor’s platform brings even greater flexibility to healthcare providers, and offers one more distinguishing feature to our technology as the Administration moves toward EMR interoperability,” said Tom Dorsett, President of iMedicor.
