New Blueprints offer expanded functionality including self-triage, remote check-in, wayfinding, EMR interoperability

RALEIGH, N.C., June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MobileSmith (OTCBB:MOST), a leader in the digital health and mobile development sector that is reshaping traditional healthcare, today announced the launch of its newest suite of healthcare apps: Blueprints 2.0. Hospitals use MobileSmith’s Blueprint apps to meet clinical and administrative challenges, including the need to reduce costs and referral leakage, drive patient engagement and adherence, and improve HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) scores and overall health outcomes.

Following the success of its initial Blueprints offering, these expanded app Blueprints include additions across MobileSmith’s primary applications: Healthcare Access apps, Service Line apps and Perioperative apps. Each of these can be heavily configured per hospital for things such as specific feature set, workflow, branding, protocol, procedure, service line and more. The added Blueprints 2.0 features include key pre-integrated mobile functionality like self-triage, remote check-in, wayfinding and EMR interoperability.

“It is no longer a question of how mobile fits into healthcare, but how many ways can mobile apps reduce costs and improve outcomes,” said Randy Tomlin, MobileSmith CEO and chairman of the board. “We’re seeing a trend where patients are expecting easy app-based tools to engage with their healthcare, and they are changing providers to those that offer these solutions. Mobile is healthcare’s new front door, and with MobileSmith’s Blueprints, successful custom apps are now in the quick-win category for organizations of all sizes.”

The perioperative apps are a primary illustration of how mobile apps can save hospitals money while improving care and outcomes. Reducing same-day cancellations through appointment reminders, prep notifications, or wayfinding while reducing preventable readmissions through improved patient health literacy and care coordination can save hospitals $300 per procedure.

“Surgeries account for approximately 60% of total hospital revenues, so this is a simple operational equation,” said Tomlin. “We are disrupting the healthcare supply chain in a way that improves both the profitability and the efficacy of healthcare delivery, and our customers are reaping the benefits across the board.”

“We saw such great results for our OB-GYN service line app ‘SSHBabies’ in terms of increased patient engagement, improved HCAHPS scores and reduced costs, that we are now about to release a Bariatrics service line app,” said Luke Poppish, executive director of OB-GYN services at South Shore Hospital in Boston. “MobileSmith has helped us make the changes necessary to address the pressure on our bottom line in a way that our patients really appreciate.”
