MEDecision Inc., a Wayne, Pa.-based provider of collaborative health management solutions, today announced that it is launching a mobile application that will enable physicians and other clinical users to access MEDecision Clinical Summaries—clinically validated electronic health records—through smartphones, electronic tablets and similar portable devices.

MEDecision offers tools to facilitate the health management and performance process for physicians and accountable care organizations (ACOs) through its InFrame portfolio. The latest milestone in MEDecision’s mission to increase the ubiquity of electronic medical information, the new InFrame mobile application will deliver richer, more accurate and actionable data to the point of care. It is designed to help physicians, ACOs and patient-centered medical homes manage the healthcare process for patients as they transition to different settings throughout the care continuum. The application will be available through the Apple iTunes store beginning March 30.

With the MEDecision Clinical Summary, care providers have access to a summarized overview of an individual’s medical history, including: a medication list, conditions list, admissions history, an emergency room visit history, gaps in care and a list of recently-received services. MEDecision’s Nexalign service compiles a member’s current and historical medical data from multiple sources. Analytics built on evidence-based medicine and best practices are applied to this information to create care plans and highlight treatment opportunities. This actionable insight is then delivered to care providers as a secure mobile application through InFrame.
