MTBC Announces the Release of Its Pioneering Electronic Prescribing Smartwatch App

SOMERSET, N.J., Jan. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MTBC (NASDAQ:MTBC), a leading provider of proprietary, healthcare information technology solutions today announced the release of its electronic prescribing app for the Apple Watch, one of the first electronic prescribing smartwatch apps available to U.S. healthcare providers.

MTBC’s Apple Watch app extends key components of its electronic prescribing app for iPhone users, known as MTBC iRx, to the Apple Watch. Users of the Apple Watch app can view patient refill request alerts and inbound patient communications on the watch and then leverage iRx to authorize refills, write new prescriptions, access patients’ medication histories and clinical support decision tools, and more.

“Our clients continue to be on the forefront of leveraging technology to streamline care and optimize health outcomes,” said Stephen Snyder, MTBC President. He continued, “Extending components of our highly-ranked mHealth and web-based ecosystem of applications to smartwatches marks an exciting evolution of our platform and we plan to build on this momentum in the year to come as we continue to extend the reach of our broader platform to smart watches and other wearable technology.”

MTBC’s Apple Watch app is the latest addition to its mHealth suite, which includes seven other apps. The most recently released app prior to MTBC’s electronic prescribing Apple Watch app was its ICD-10 converter app, which quickly seized and maintained the coveted rank of the most "popular" ICD-10 apps available in the Apple iTunes store.
