HCN partners with Healthshare for MD Sidebar App
Health Communication Network (HCN) has demonstrated the first iteration of its new sidebar functionality for Medical Director, partnering with Healthshare to develop a patient education application to assist doctors with explaining to patients the options and outcomes of health problems once a diagnosis has been made.
HCN's MD Sidebar, first announced in August last year, is an integration platform that allows third-party app developers to add apps and widgets to MD's Widget Store. Users can then download the apps they need to the MD Sidebar, which sits on the right-hand side of the screen and can be minimised or maximised as needed.
HCN has developed an API framework to allow the apps to fully integrate with MD, allowing them to access information from patient files but also allowing the apps to write back to MD.
In addition to the Healthshare app, HCN has also partnered with app developer Health v2 to add an image capture and sharing app to the Widget Store, along with an app to write medical reports for life insurance purposes and submit them automatically to UHG.Read More
