DrChrono Announces EHR for Apple Watch to Improve Doctor Visits

Mountain View, April 13, 2015 ​d​rchrono​, an award­-winning Electronic Health Record (EHR) which includes all of the benefits of billing, practice management and an records in one place, will be the first to offer an integrated EHR on Apple Watch on April 24. The company is a leader in health technology: they were the first to build a native electronic health records (EHR) application for the iPad, offer developers an open healthcare API, a first-and-only EHR integration with Square and data sync with Box.

The drchrono Apple Watch app will revolutionize the physician office experience by providing automated, real-time communication between healthcare providers and patients. Physicians will be able to quickly view a patient’s information on their wrist, respond to patient messages via quick text and view a patient’s prescription refill request, all without having to access the EHR on their phone, iPad or web. As such, the app will be a seamless extension of the drchrono ipad, ipad, web and cloud experience.

“The drchrono Apple Watch app was designed with doctors’ busy lives in mind and is intended to make medical professionals more productive, efficient and organized,”  says Michael Nusimow, co-founder and CEO of drchrono. “Doctors are incredibly busy;  drchrono on Apple Watch gives them insights about their practice and patients just by checking their wrist. Its simply amazing to have a hands free way to gather quick insights about a patient.”

Each Apple Watch “mode” will be utilized to optimize for a physician seeing patients or on-rounds. For instance, “Glance”, which is the watch’s quick view mode will offer doctors a snapshot of their schedule. “Short Look Notifications” or short reminders, will be used to display chats or messages generated from the EHR app; a common use case could be chat messages from colleagues reminding doctors to wrap things up in advance of their next appointment. Finally, the “Long Look Notifications” mode, will offer a doctor a view of the app itself.

The drchrono Apple Watch app will be available from the Apple Watch App Store on April 24.
