New App, Available to MicroMD® Users, Connects Patient Information to Apple Watch and iPhone, ‘Simplifying' Everyday Tasks for Physicians and Enhancing Patient Engagement
MELVILLE, N.Y., May 15, 2017 – Henry Schein Medical Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Henry Schein, Inc., announced today its partnership with Simplifeye to create a mobile experience for health care providers who use Henry Schein's practice management and electronic health record software, MicroMD®. Designed to help physicians operate more efficient and productive practices, Simplifeye (also the product name) is a new mobile product that makes real-time information about visiting patients – including who they are, where they are located in the practice and what care they need – available on Apple Watch® Series 1 and Apple Watch® Series 2 wrist wearable devices, and iPhone® mobile digital devices.
The integration of Simplifeye with MicroMD, available through Henry Schein Medical Systems as an eSERVICE, enables physicians to provide more personalized patient experiences, streamline their practice workflows, and keep members of their teams in sync with each other while they are away from workstations.
"Living in a digital world, customers can rely on Henry Schein to provide everyday technology they are familiar with to enhance digital workflows in a practice setting," said Kristen Heffernan, General Manager, Henry Schein Medical Systems, the developer of MicroMD. "We remain committed to providing practice management solutions that can enhance common practice procedures so that physicians can focus on delivering quality patient care."
In addition to the benefits provided to patients and physicians, the integration with Simplifeye also helps reduce time needed for the office staff to fulfill tasks, such as checking in patients and gathering patient information. With the integration of Simplifeye, MicroMD users will receive real-time notifications that alert the staff when patients arrive, as well as provide updates on how long patients have been waiting. The integration also offers fast, convenient access to patient and procedure details, daily schedules, and other important information.
"We have a shared vision with Henry Schein Medical Systems to provide health care teams with the best technology solutions so that they can provide high quality patient care and go about their day with fewer worries," said Zach Hungate, CEO and Co-Founder of Simplifeye. "We are excited to expand the Simplifeye platform to even more health care practices across the United States."
