For clinicians in hospitals

Grant mobile access to clinical data without sacrificing security. Extend mobile access to EMRs and EKGs on clinicians’ tablets so they can deliver guidance wherever the point of care may be.

For case management in the community

Under pressure to improve care outcomes, meet patient expectations, rein in costs, and better serve changing demographics, digital health systems can use an array of clinical-grade devices and mobile solutions to deliver coordinated care in homes, community centers, and the workplace.

For patients and citizens

The benefits extend beyond health professionals, too. Citizens can be proactive about their digital health with new apps, and patients can take advantage of new devices provided by their clinical organizations.

The demand for cloud computing solutions is clear. Today’s organizations are looking for more agility, easier management, and access to more capacity to enable them to handle increased demands without increasing costs.

CareOtter’s mission is to empower the patient to have the best healthcare possible. By eliminating silos of data every your small-town doctor will have the same influence or same impact that a large academic medical center may have on an individual patient’s healthcare outcomes.
