MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Google's decision to discontinue Google Health will go into effect January 1st, 2013, permanently removing access for all existing Google Health users. drchrono, the company providing Free Electronic Health Records to physicians on the iPad, has created a seamless replacement for Google Health. "We're committed to the idea of giving patients control of their health data and being able to manage this data from doctors and other sources in one place," explained drchrono Cofounder and CEO, Michael Nusimow.
Today drchrono officially released onpatient, allowing users to create a personal health record from their Google Health data. This record can be linked to drchrono's free Electronic Health Record platform, a platform currently being used by over 35,000 physicians. "Giving patients access to their health records and allowing them to share this data directly with their physicians corresponds with our long term goal," Nusimow discussed. With 1.5 million personal records created before the public launch, onpatient is easily taking over where Google Health left off.
The primary difference between drchrono onpatient and Google Health is that "onpatient is focused on creating a unique mobile healthcare experience for individuals," explained drchrono Cofounder and COO, Daniel Kivatinos. "A focus on mobile devices also allows for better doctor-patient interaction. For example, a patient can take advantage of the picture and video capabilities from an iPhone and share this with a physician in a HIPAA-compliant manner to monitor progress of a condition or issue. Allowing patients to easily track their medical information makes an individual more aware and accountable for their own health."
Like Google Health, drchrono is bridging partnerships within the healthcare industry. One partnership is with iHealth, a company that provides FDA-approved devices such as the iHealth blood pressure cuff and scale for iPhone, devices that can be used from home. "iHealth is committed to making it convenient for doctors and patients to easily share health information," said Adam Lin, General Manager at iHealth Labs, Inc. "This partnership with drchrono's onpatient personal medical record will make it as simple for patients to share information with their doctor as it is to manage their wellbeing with iHealth's mobile devices."
A personal health record connecting to devices like iHealth's and utilizing mobile applications like iOS Passbook make it easier for patients to keep track of their health. "Passbook is game changing to healthcare; it allows a user to enter, collect, and present data to their doctors all through their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch," further noted Kivatinos. "Our end goal is to remove paper from the doctor-patient relationship, and this is another step in that direction." With onpatient, fumbling with medical forms and searching through paper records is a thing of the past.
drchrono focuses on Apple's iPad, iPhone and cloud computing to build a better healthcare experience. They offer a free EHR platform built on the iPad that is Meaningful Use certified. drchrono is also the first iPad EHR to implement real-time clinical speech-to-text, patient eligibility checks, and iPad based medical billing. drchrono integrates everything doctors need to run their practice, including: medical records, electronic prescribing, medical billing, and patient management.

The drchrono iPad EHR is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by InfoGard Laboratories, an ONC-ATCB, as a complete EHR in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments. drchrono version 9.0 was Stage 1 certified on June 3, 2011. The ONC certification ID number is IG-2492-11-0083.

The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.
