Bachmann Software today announced the commercial release
a new Palm OS software application that provides physicians with
the ability to view and print summarized patient information. Designed
to be compatible with PatientKeeper's acclaimed PatientKeeper
Personal patient management product, MedReporter allows physicians
to aggregate selected information from a patient database and produce
it in various report formats. MedReporter also gives physicians
the ability to print their selected data from a handheld computer
by simply beaming it to an infrared printer.
The combination of putting selected patient data at
the fingertips of a physician, either in an onscreen report or printed
format, ensures that healthcare professionals have the most current
information to make patient care decisions. The MedReporter application
also gives PatientKeeper's growing developer community the ability
to print-enable their own mobile applications.
"PatientKeeper's clinical users have identified
printing common medical reports and forms as a key workflow enhancement,"
said Stephen S. Hau, PatientKeeper's founder and vice president.
"Bachmann Software's MedReporter application integrates seamlessly
with the PatientKeeper's Mobilizer Platform to provide this important
capability." With MedReporter, PatientKeeper users can dynamically
generate patient summaries to get quick overviews of clinical status
and facilitate the sign-out process. MedReporter also allows the
reports to be annotated and printed for clinical documentation.
"Medical professionals demand timely data, delivered
to them in their format of choice," said Dan Reuvers, Bachmann
Software's vice president of business development. "Some people
respond better to data organized on a computer screen, while others
prefer to deal with printed documents. We developed MedReporter
with the goal of providing physicians with the ability to choose
how they would like to view their patient data. The real key to
MedReporter is that it was designed with the busy physician in mind,
ensuring that patient summaries are available instantly even in
an extremely hectic environment. MedReporter really does 'serve'
