 New Technology Helps Doctors

3M has introduced a new app, the 3M Mobile Physician that is aimed to help physicians and insurance companies with accurate documentation of patient information.

This breakthrough multi-tasking mobile technology helps to manage a doctor's daily schedule, review patient information, dictate notes and to record accurate charges. It is a composite unit of four software applications: Mobile Patient Lists to plan and organize the day; Mobile Rounds to view vital patient information and lab reports; Mobile Dictation to record and transmit spoken information to a patient's file; and Mobile Charge Capture for selecting the correct billing codes.

The information is encrypted and therefore, secure, and more importantly, can be accessible to hospital management systems.  

The technology is welcome as American doctors spend as many as eight hours a week on paper work and still, insurance companies reject claims because of insufficient or inaccurate information.

The 3M Mobile Physician would now take over the task efficiently so that insurance companies would be satisfied and doctors can do what they need to do - be there for their patients.
