Mobile EHR vendor dchrono launched a new feature for its iPad app called Kiosk that lets patients check themselves in at physicians’ offices. Kiosk enables providers to equip their front office with an iPad stand that patients can use to check in, verify insurance information, and sign any necessary consent forms without needing a staff member to manage the process.

The vendor also announced patient education functionality for the Apple iPad, enabling providers to share materials with patients. This feature enables providers to upload and share patient education information on any iOS device or the web.

In addition, drchrono said it is a new Apple mobility partner, allowing it to broaden access to medical records through its native iOS app, which it optimized for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch and supports the latest features of iOS and watchOS.

With drchrono’s platform, doctors can now provide healthcare on demand to patients as long as they have an iOS device with an internet connection. They can electronically order labs or imaging and receive the results and prescribe controlled substances for their patients anytime, anywhere on their mobile devices.

“With drchrono EHR, our providers can take care of their patients in the home environment with access to their charts and ability to order lab or imaging tests directly from an iPad without being tied to an office location,” Renee Dua, Founder and Chief Medical Officer at Heal, said in a statement.

The mobile EHR solution will also save providers time on administrative work,” said Michael Nusimow, CEO and co-founder of drchrono.

“From the moment a doctor wakes up, seeing patients at the office, doing house calls, or at night after driving home, he will have access to his patients’ data and ability to provide care at a moment's notice,” Nusimow said in a statement.
