Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago – Becker ASC Conference 2010

Are you in Chicago?

Do you work at an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) or are you interested in learning how OpNote will work for your Orthopedic, Spine and/or Pain Management practice?

Come and visit mTuitive at the 8th Annual Orthopedic, Spine and Pain Management Driven ASC Conference which is being held Today, June 10, through Saturday, June 12th, at The Westin (on Michigan Ave).

Christopher and Colin will be on hand to talk to anyone interested in learning more about OpNote and they are ready to answer any questions, including those pertaining to pricing, interoperability and implementation. Also present at the conference will be Dr. John Mattson, our orthopedic surgical consultant who will show everyone how he uses OpNote in his orthopedic procedures and how easy it is to create defaults – all on his own iPad!

Becker ASC Review is a great source of information about ASCs – including news, articles, editorials and developing products. Definitely recommend heading over to that site if you’re interested in finding out more about the growing community of ambulatory surgery centers.

Also, we’ll be tweeting about the conference throughout the next three days, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, or simply look for the conference tag #ORTHOASC2010.

Think of the iPossibilities…

The Future...is Now

After only a few weeks of toiling, we have brought the power of mTuitive OpNote to the ease and portability of the iPad. OpNote is now iPad and iPhone compatible and while some of our users have those devices, it’s really just a means for us to learn more about this technology that is growing in popularity and users. As more IT companies are announcing their plans for other tablets (or “slates” as they’re sometimes called), it’s great to be able to see how easily we’re able to bring over our product onto these devices.

Obviously, a lot of that has to do with the fact that OpNote is web-based – but more mobile operating systems (OS) are debuting every month, each with their own nuances and idiosyncrasies. As we develop OpNote on iPad, though, we can begin to see the future of personal computers and begin to envision how medical reporting will work for our incredibly busy and increasingly mobile physicians.

So how does OpNote look and work on the iPad? To paraphrase the reaction to another great technological advancement:

“I love OpNote on the iPad. It’s SO bad.”

Dr. Internet – What Constitutes Telemedicine?

Image courtesy of http://www.accessrx.com

I had never heard the term “telemedicine” before today.  I came across it in this Virginia Commonwealth University article about Virginia’s coverage expansion of telemedicine to include most Virginians.  Some quick research later and I discovered that I was familiar with the concept but never realized there was a term for it.

Wikipedia defines telemedicine as “a rapidly developing application of clinical medicine where medical information is transferred through interactive audiovisual media for the purpose of consulting, and sometimes remote medical procedures or examinations.”

This can involve anything from transferring radiology images from one facility to a patient’s general practitioner.  Or it can be a device that a patient must wear to monitor his heart rate or sugar intake.  Or it can even just be a doctor consulting with her patient over the telephone or Skype.  In this age of instant connectivity, increased communication and the expanding capabilities of most phones and computers, it seems likely that telemedicine will increase in popularity and in frequency of use.  This rise of electronic medical interaction, however, can lead to sources of misinformation being mistaken for legitimate health advice or care.

iPads, PDAs and Smartphones, Oh My!

As I’ve posted on Twitter a couple of times, versions of Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) are being developed and deployed at a much faster clip.  This is partially due to the increased funding available via government grants, but also reflects the rise of prominence of technology in society as well as recognizing the benefits of those technologies.

Additionally, various aspects of the medical field are being broken up and addressed by different companies – resulting in pre-operative management systems, peri-operative management systems, capturing of prescriptions, electronic history & physical, image capture & storage from MRIs and X-Rays.

Advances in technologies are constantly occurring – with improvements to both software and hardware happening at a faster rate than ever before in human history.  This means that each advancement brings with it new possibilities and new capabilities that should help our daily lives and our professions.  But do they actually improve our workflow?

Last week, Apple announced their exciting new iPad product and set the web ablaze with people wondering what it was capable of, and what they really wanted it to do.  In light of the iPad premiere, we at mTuitive have been thinking about what future of Health IT and handheld electronics will look like.
