Learn More About the Wearable Medical Record and Its Effect on Patient and Physician Interactions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2016) - drchrono Inc., the industry leading Electronic Health Record (EHR), practice management and medical API platform on iPad, iPhone and web, today announced that Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-founder will present on the topic 'The Wearable Medical Record' at Wearables TechCon 2016 on July 19, 2016 at the San Jose Convention Center.

Daniel Kivatinos will discuss the wearable medical record and its impact on patients and medical providers. For the patient, as the world changes, people from around the world are becoming more accountable for their care using wearables. People are now tracking information like heart rate, temperature, weight, height, sleep, medications and more. For the medical practitioner, the physician's office of the future will be different. Physicians are more connected than ever, with Bluetooth-connected medical devices, collecting more and more data at a higher rate, leveraging iPads, iPhones and the Apple Watch.

During this session, attendees will learn more about the wearable medical record's effect on patient interactions with their physician and the future of their medical records. Also, this talk will explain how people are sharing their data with their family, friends and the medical community through electronic medical records and how a connected world via wearable technology is changing the way we think about medicine and our health care. Physicians are looking for ways to find critical data to make decisions and track a patient's health and wearables allow physicians in any specialty to track groups of patients, for example diabetes, and how well a patient cohort is working under the care of a physician. This talk will further explain the state of wearable medical record with examples of useful implementations with some of the leading healthcare apps.

More about drchrono and Wearable Technology for EHRs
drchrono was the first to offer an integrated EHR on the Apple Watch. The drchrono Apple Watch app has revolutionized the physician office experience and improve doctor visits by providing automated, real-time communication between healthcare providers and patients.

Physicians can quickly view a patient's information on their wrist, respond to patient messages via quick text and view a patient's prescription refill request, all without having to access the EHR on their phone, iPad or web. As such, the app is a seamless extension of the drchrono iPad, iPad, web and cloud experience. Each Apple Watch "mode" is optimized for a physician seeing patients or on-rounds. For instance, "Glance," which is the watch's quick view mode offer a doctor a snapshot of their schedule. "Short Look Notifications" or short reminders, are used to display chats or messages generated from the EHR app; a common use case could be chat messages from colleagues reminding doctors to wrap things up in advance of their next appointment. Finally, the "Long Look Notifications" mode, offers a doctor a view of the app itself.

The drchrono Apple Watch app is now available in the Apple Watch App Store.
