Healthphone Solutions have been selected by Motion Computing, Inc. as a partner in their Independent Software Vendor (ISV) alliance programme.
This alliance forms the cornerstone of Healthphone’s US channel market strategy, and supports both companies’ goals of increasing productivity for mobile healthcare workers and enabling better patient outcomes.
Healthphone offers the community healthcare industry mobile optimized solutions. The company was founded in New Zealand but now headquartered in Seattle, with offices in Australia, Canada and Singapore, and a development centre in New Zealand.
Healthphone’s Mobile Wound Care enables doctors and wound care specialists to provide real-time recommendations, electronically, regardless of patients’ location. The software is matched to the technology of Motion’s C5 mobile clinical assistant tablet PC.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Motion Computing,” said Debbi Gillotti, CEO of Healthphone. “Our Mobile Wound Care solution is a natural fit with the Motion C5 tablet PC. By enabling instant access to assessments, care plan and treatments, and improving communication among clinicians, we are able to more effectively bridge the gap that can exist between hospitals and other community healthcare settings.”
In Canada, Healthphone has partnered with telecommunications company TELUS to deliver home and community-based applications including Mobile Wound Care. This partnership equips front line care providers with Motion’s tablet PCs making it possible for them to access and update wound care visit forms, take colour digital photos of wounds, and transmit information real time from the point of care to wound specialists.
The Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) Canada, a provider of home and community care, is currently implementing Mobile Wound Care on a number of C5 devices as part of a pilot project in its North Bay, Ontario branch.
