New business comes to Flint
FLINT — There’s a new technology company open for business in downtown Flint. Recently settled into Suite 701 of the Northbank Center, 432 N. Saginaw Street, Mobiusoft, LLC offers specialized software technologies for the health industry and has solved a long-standing medical information exchange problem in which individual patient records are scattered among physicians, pharmacists, and healthcare teams, making it impossible for quality coordination of care and increasing the likelihood of duplicating costly medical services.
Mobiusoft, LLC has designed a leading-edge internet-based health/medical records (EHR) system that is fully integrated with a Health Information Exchange (HIE). It provides safe, reliable, coordinated and secure sharing of patient information between healthcare providers; it allows patients fullview access to their own medical records; and it provides for electronic communications between patients and their health care providers.
Although primarily marketed to healthcare providers, Mobiusoft, LLC will be holding community demonstrations in early 2011 so individuals can see first-hand the consumer/patient functions of this system, including privacy management, electronic communications for appointment and prescription refill requests, test results view, immunization history, current medications, referrals, past and future medical appointments, and more.
