mEMR: A Secure Mobile Platform Integrated with Electronic Medical Records

A platform for secure communication between mobile devices and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is proposed. This is an essential component of a shared care environment when multiple physicians/specialists are involved in providing care to a patient and consultation is necessary. Further, when physicians travel to provide care in sparsely populated regions, secure communication between their mobile devices and remote EMRs is necessary to securely obtain health information and push events recorded during the visit. The proposed solution provides an EMR-agnostic communication platform which adopts the standardized Clinical Document Architecture. The proposed solution has been demonstrated to work in both online and offline modes thereby making it useful not only in urban populations but also in remote areas where network connectivity may be less reliable.
