PocketScript and RIM have collaborated to extend PocketScript’s electronic prescribing point-of-care technologies so that they can be utilized on Java-based BlackBerryTM handhelds. Medix provides Internet-based healthcare communication, data integration, and transaction processing software through its Cymedix® product line.
“Our ability to deliver a single integrated solution to the physician is significant. With the BlackBerry wireless platform, we enable the physician access to patient information irrespective of location. This frees the physician from having to carry a pager, cell phone and PDA, while simultaneously increasing their productivity,” stated Stephen Burns, President & CEO of PocketScript.
“I don’t think it should be underestimated just how significant this development is for the proliferation of technologies for physicians. With our pending acquisition of PocketScript and the alliance between RIM and PocketScript, we see an exciting opportunity to expand Medix’s product offerings, all bundled into this neatly portable platform,“ stated Darryl Cohen, Medix CEO & President.
