RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MobileSmith Health (OTCBB: MOST), a leader in the digital health and mobile development sector that is reshaping traditional healthcare, today announced the collaboration with Isabel Healthcare on the release of a pediatrics app for The Spence and Becky Wilson Baptist Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. The new Baptist4Kids app provides parents with access to resources needed to raise a healthy child from birth to preschool.
“Whether it be to look up medical conditions, check symptoms or keep track of upcoming appointments, patients want the ability to access trusted resources at their fingertips. This is especially important for parents when it comes to their child’s care,” said Randy Tomlin, MobileSmith Health CEO and chairman of the board. “That’s why hospitals like Baptist Children’s are turning to mobile apps as a means of engaging with patients to establish long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with parents who will continually turn to the Baptist4Kids app throughout their child’s growth and development.”
The Baptist4Kids app is the first pediatric app developed using MobileSmith Health’s signature Blueprints and includes the customizable Isabel Symptom Checker, which provides users with a resource to check their symptoms in an easy, intuitive method while providing access to material on possible conditions and assists with determining next steps.
Kevin Hammeran, CEO and administrator of Baptist Children’s Hospital, said, “We are so happy to partner with MobileSmith Health to bring parents an additional tool to help them make informed decisions about their child’s health care. The amount of information available about children’s health and wellness can be overwhelming, so having needed, reliable and up-to-date information in one easy to access place is essential for parents.”
“Isabel Healthcare’s roots are in pediatrics, which is why we are honored to collaborate with MobileSmith Health on bringing Baptist Children’s an important and intuitive pediatric tool that helps guide parents when it comes to their child’s health and well-being,” said Don Bauman, CEO of Isabel Healthcare. “Providing parents with trusted resources when it comes to potential health concerns is vital as they look to have informed conversations with their child’s pediatrician.”
With Baptist4Kids, parents learn about and track each stage of their child’s growth from birth to 6 years old – including the tracking of vaccine records and pediatric appointments. In addition to helping guide parents, Baptist4Kids is used as resource on child care and wellness for area pediatricians and other physicians, schools, and providers in the hospital’s local community.
Through the use of MobileSmith Health Blueprints, hospitals and other healthcare organizations can customize their apps based on specific feature sets, workflow, branding, protocol, procedure and service line while launching in as little as 90 days. The company’s latest Blueprints 3.0 offerings provide expanded mobile capabilities across MobileSmith Health’s primary applications: In-Network Apps, Perioperative Apps, and Patient Acquisition apps. In addition to the Baptist4Kids pediatric app, MobileSmith Health saw the launch of eleven customer apps in Q4 2018 alone, ranging from pregnancy and general access apps to urgent care and the first Spanish-language app using MobileSmith Health Blueprints.
