Halfpenny Technologies Inc., a health information exchange solutions provider specializing in laboratory, pathology and physician electronic medical record (EMR) system interoperability, has introduced ITF-Mobile, a handheld results reporting system enabling physicians to securely access laboratory, pathology and radiology result reports from their iPhone, BlackBerry or Android-powered smartphones.
Developed to facilitate the portable exchange of clinical information, ITF-Mobile provides physicians with visual and audio alerts of incoming clinical messages and abnormal results. Based on user-defined rules, ITF-Mobile can be set up to deliver all lab results, test results with abnormal values, or only those results specifically ordered by a physician or requested by a patient. Additionally, physicians can select specific lab tests for auto-trending so that they can monitor result trends.
"As physicians seek more efficient ways of accessing and managing clinical information, they are increasingly relying on their handheld devices to provide them with time-critical information," said Charles Halfpenny, president and founder of Halfpenny Technologies. "With ITF-Mobile, physicians are able to review lab results, pathology reports and radiology reports at their convenience, which not only provides them with added flexibility but also enables them to respond more quickly to patient needs."
