Epion Health Wins First Place at Mobile Health ConferenceConnecting to Patients and Physicians at the Point of Care, Using a Mobile Platform as the First Point of Engagement (February 13, 2012)
NEWARK, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/12 -- Epion Health's mobile platform, for use at the point of care, was selected as the winner in the health care category in a competition hosted by The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). At the symposium, sponsored in part by mHealthcon, leaders in life science, mhealth and digital innovations were brought together with potential investors. This year's event showcased 43 competing companies.
The winning mhealth platform from Epion Health allows physician practices to provide a tool that enables patients to become more involved in their own care. The service also provides physicians access to the latest medical apps and interactive content.
In medical offices using the new service, patients receive an electronic tablet provided by Epion for their use while waiting. Alternatively, patients can access content on their smart phone or other mobile device to learn more about their health and prepare for their office visit.
Physicians use the mobile platform to access health information and pre-loaded medical apps such as drug references, dosage calculators, health assessments and other digital tools, thus providing them with helpful resources to improve the delivery of care. They can also download content and apps to their own mobile devices.
Epion Health provides device independent, point-of-care information services, delivering a wide variety of medical information and applications to patients and physicians. For further information about Epion Health, visit the company's website at www.epionhealth.com.
