Real-Time Patient Data Available to Clinicians on iPhone with Thomson Reuters Clinical Xpert
ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 21 -- Thomson Reuters announced today that it will support the iPhone platform for its Clinical Xpert(TM) suite of mobile clinical workflow solutions.
With Clinical Xpert, hospital-based doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and allied health professionals will have real-time access to clinical patient information -- including medications, radiology and laboratory results, vital signs, demographics, and transcribed reports -- via their iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices.
Beta testing of Clinical Xpert for iPhone will commence in August and it will be ready for commercial release in October. There is no charge to current Clinical Xpert customers for the iPhone upgrade.
Clinicians will be able to download the Clinical Xpert application to their iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad from the Apple App Store. With the addition of the iPhone platform, Clinical Xpert will support more mobile devices than any other real-time clinical surveillance and mobile patient data solution.
Using Clinical Xpert, hospitals deploy a single system that improves clinical efficiency by providing better access to critical patient information, real-time clinical surveillance, automated pharmacy interventions, charge and billing code management, care team coordination, and medication reconciliation. It also provides a seamless backup to the core hospital information system, giving clinicians uninterrupted access to patient data during planned and unplanned downtime.
By aggregating data from multiple disparate hospital information systems, Clinical Xpert gives healthcare providers mobile access to actionable patient data throughout the continuum of care, helping them make better, more informed decisions at the point of care.
Clinical Xpert currently supports mobile devices running on BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Palm platforms. The solution also is accessible via Web-enabled laptops, tablet PCs, computers on wheels (COWs) and desktop computers. No other mobile healthcare vendor offers this range of platform support.
Hospitals using Clinical Xpert have reported significant improvements in clinical outcomes including a 30.8 percent reduction in mortality, a 76.5 percent reduction in "code blue" conditions outside of the intensive care unit, and a 42 percent decrease in mortality for sepsis patients.
Clinical Xpert has been the category leader for mobile data systems in the Best in KLAS Awards for eight consecutive years. For more information, visit http://www.clinicalxpert.com
