Improves Care Team communications with Real-Time Patient and Care
Team Data Access

PatientSafe Solutions, a leader in mobile clinical communication and
workflow solutions for the healthcare enterprise, announced today its
integration with Epic. The PatientTouch app is now available in the Epic
App Orchard, a platform where developers can access Epic's application
programming interfaces (APIs) and post their app for Epic community
members to evaluate and consider. As an App Orchard contributor,
PatientSafe Solutions will use Epic's APIs to ensure tight integration
and smooth interoperability for its customers.

"By fully embracing Epic's interoperability and technical standards our
developers will be able to ensure interoperability between the Epic EHR
and our smartphone app to deliver real-time clinical information from
the Epic platform to the care team's secure mobile devices," said Si
Luo, president and CEO, Patient Safe Solutions. "There are many
communication solutions out there, but only a few that can truly
leverage the data in the EHR and update patient-centric-context in-app
from a smartphone while ‘on the move' — the way clinicians work. We want
to bring this value to Epic customers."

The PatientTouch app aggregates and synthesizes patient and care team
data from the core EMR and ancillary systems to coordinate care team
collaboration and ensure timely intervention for sepsis response,
anti-microbial stewardship management, falls prevention, and more.

"Our goal is always to bring real-time, relevant clinical data from Epic
and other systems directly to the care team while they are the go," said
Steve Baum, Vice President Product Development, PatientSafe Solutions.
"As a part of the Epic development community, PatientSafe can deliver
proven interoperability and enhanced user experience for our Epic
