Atlanta based home health software provider Alora Healthcare Systems has just released the first Apple approved native iPad app for Home Health visits.
The world first observed the “Alora SN Note” in action earlier this week during a special preview session for the company’s clients. The app will be officially launched at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) Annual Conference in Washington, DC later this week.
Following a focused developmental phase and subsequent approval by Apple, the new app is now available to users of Alora’s Home Health Software, can be purchased for download in the Apple App Store.
“Alora SN Note,” which in essence is a software extension to the cloud-based Alora Home Health Software, allows a home health nurse to enter Skilled Nursing Visit Note and capture signatures, without the requirement of Internet access.
Visit Notes completed on the iPad can then be transmitted to the Alora Home Health Software application with a simple touch, whenever Internet access becomes available. Additionally, once a patient signs a visit note, Alora SN Note captures GPS coordinates and offers the ability to view the location on a map.
“This is a very exciting time for us and many of our clients who have been wanting to see this type of product available in our industry,” says Charlie Murff, senior programmer at Alora. “We tried to cover all of the bases, making sure it was not only functional and easy to use, but also HIPAA compliant and encrypted for security.”
