These two powerful apps will change the way medical professionals collaborate in the healthcare continuum and are poised to dramatically increase productivity resulting in improved patient outcomes
Attune Technologies, a Singapore based healthcare technology company that delivers a pioneering integrated Cloud-based platform for healthcare delivery organizations, announced today (Date) the launch of two new powerful apps – ‘DoCom’ and ‘PathWorks’– which are poised to change the way doctors and hospital staff interact and collaborate, potentially help save lives.
A doctor’s day is busy, packed with consultations, in-patient visits during rounds, diagnostic, interventional and surgical procedures and handling numerous calls each day. However, several times, there are instances of miscommunications, incomplete information and delays in the delivery of critical information in a timely manner. Attune Technologies has revealed that the launch of these new apps is part of their continuing efforts to address this serious existing gap in communication and collaboration in the healthcare space.
Speaking on the occasion, Arvind Kumar, Founder and CEO of Attune Technologies said, “DoCoM and PathWorks are tools designed by doctors for doctors to offer seamless communication and notification that is created based around the doctor’s schedule”. He further added, “With the DoCoM app, it is now possible for hospitals to share images like X ray, ECG, Clinical pictures (like a skin rash) and videos (like an angiogram) with a closed group of doctors. The app is designed to cater to most of the routine yet time consuming communications such as discharge, lab report, minor clinical problems and case sheet requirements to help hospital staff move faster. In case of PathWorks it empowers the doctors to view lab report results, see previous reports and authorize on the go from their handheld device.”
Dr. Anand Gnanaraj, Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer at Attune further added, “While the existing messaging platforms make collaborations easier, they are neither secure, nor designed for medical applications – which means, the doctor has to spend time typing out all the instructions clearly and later track them to see if they were followed through. This is compounded by the inability of the doctor to keep track of everyone’s phone number. The intuitive user interface of DoCom and PathWorks apps help doctors take quick decisions and stay in touch with hospital staff 24×7 breaking geographic barriers. The other challenge with discussing patient data in a platform is maintaining the sanctity of patient confidentiality which is addressed by these apps from Attune.”
