Beyond being known as a top pediatric hospital, the Children’s Medical Center in Dallas is known for its high technology adoption rate, which it views as a way to bring convenience and better care to patients.
Recently, Children’s received an extra dose of technology support when it teamed up with Verizon Wireless, the Office of the National Coordinator and Microsoft HealthVault to launch the Portable Health Record Pilot. The program allows patients to receive all medical records and information on their smartphones and tablets.
Mobile access to medical records helps doctors at Children’s quickly retrieve patients’ information while allowing patients to take care of themselves at home, ultimately extending the reach of their health care services.
“Smartphones and other hand-held devices have made the world a much smaller place, so Children’s looks to leverage those technologies to expand our reach and benefit our patients,” said Pamela Arora, vice president and chief information officer at Children’s Medical Center.
