Mobile lab results reporting
Halfpenny Technologies Inc, Blue Bell, Pa, introduces ITF-Mobile, a handheld results reporting system that enables physicians to securely access laboratory, pathology, and radiology result reports from popular smart phones. Developed to facilitate the portable exchange of clinical information, the system provides visual and audio alerts of incoming clinical messages and abnormal results. Based on user-defined rules, ITF-Mobile can be set up to deliver all lab results, test results with abnormal values, or only those results specifically ordered by a physician or requested by a patient. ITF-Mobile is an extension of the company’s ITF-Portal, a Web-based connectivity solution that enables physicians to securely order lab procedures and review result reports through a standard, HIPAA-compliant Web browser.
