Doc Halo debuts Pronto, mobile enterprise-wide scheduling and messaging system
LAS VEGAS – Doc Halo has introduced Pronto, an enterprise-wide scheduling and messaging system that is part of the vendor’s Halo Mobile Health Platform for clinical communication. The system is designed to replace paper schedules and pagers. The vendor made the announcement at HIMSS16 in its exhibit hall booth (#661), where it is demonstrating the new technology for conference attendees.

Using the new Pronto module, caregivers can access enterprise-wide schedules with up-to-the-minute accuracy, find on-call providers anywhere in a health system and message them immediately, activate critical-care teams within seconds, and create custom clinical teams for care coordination, Doc Halo said.
Clinicians access Pronto teams and schedules from their smartphones. Administrators can input and update schedules through a web console.
Healthcare providers often serve several functions at once, making it nearly impossible to automate healthcare scheduling using a tool designed for another industry, Doc Halo said.
“This technology will coordinate care by connecting healthcare providers in ways never before possible,” said Jose Barreau, MD, the CEO of Doc Halo. “Pronto saves time in a setting where time is critical.”
