With the iPhone application, nurses can also directly register basic patient information like pulse and temperature with Lorenzo, reducing the time spend on administrative actions and making information available with a click of the 'enter' button.
"We need to bring the patient into the consumer space," said iSOFT's chief medical officer, Dr Michael Dahlweid. "At the same time we need to ensure we extend the richness of electronic health records to the finger tips of medical professionals in a hospital or surgery, or on-call so that they can track a patient's condition in real-time."
Dahlweid also stressed the importance of feedback from the medical community. "We are very excited about the potential of an application on both the iPhone and the iPad, but our healthcare customers can rest assured that we will be gathering their input before bringing the final version to market."
