PHYAURA EHR Goes Mobile with ClickMedix, LLC

PHYAURA EHR, a leading open-source provider of web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) software, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with ClickMedix, LLC that will enhance their innovative mobile health technology, mHealth.

“I've looked at many EHR solutions and selected PHYAURA because it was designed by experienced practicing physicians,” explains Ting Shih, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “At ClickMedix, we aim to free physicians from paper work and bureaucracy so that they can do what they do best - that is to treat patients. PHYAURA EHR is designed to effectively expedite clinical workflow, and when used in conjunction with the mobile front-end of ClickMedix, we are completing the end-to-end care for patients, from early detection to diagnosis, treatment, billing, follow-up care, and patient education for preventative care through easily accessible mobile phones or web browsers.”

ClickMedix designed mobile health systems can withstand unreliable or intermittent mobile network, serves patients from rural regions to crowded urban areas, while streamlining the varied workflows of healthcare providers to lower the overall costs of healthcare. ClickMedix has created a HIPAA-compliant and user-friendly mHealth platform that can be deployed quickly to health practitioners and connect patients with medical experts worldwide. Ms. Shih leads the design, development, and deployment efforts for ClickMedix’s affordable healthcare platform used for telemedicine, home-visit care, and patient self-management.

According to Jude A. Pierre, MD, co-founder of PHYAURA, “Input of patient data at point of care takes on a whole new meaning now. Our strategic partnership will allow physicians and health care professionals the ability to document care given within the office or the field.”

Together, PHYAURA and ClickMedix will enter the market segment of corporations looking to provide a better way to deliver health care to their employees via secure mobile technology services. This will allow the clinicians to utilize telemedicine to consult with and treat employees. “Not only does this save on medical costs, it improves patient care and all within one platform,” explains Dr. Pierre. “Employees and employers lose hours of work time traveling and waiting to receive health care. Therefore, many businesses are beginning to incorporate mobile health services, which are easy to use, and a convenience that everyone is viewing as a value-added benefit.”


PHYAURA, a Tampa-Bay based company, was founded in 2004 by practicing physicians. PHYAURA is dedicated to providing physicians with the resources, services, and HIPAA-compliant communication tools that merge the best practices of modern medicine with state of the art technologies of the 21st century. PHYAURA's management team constantly invites feedback to make the practice of medicine and patient care better.

Electric power utilities face relentless pressure on their financial performance, and reducing distribution grid losses is one of the last untapped opportunities to meet their business goals. Combining IoT-enabled sensors and cloud-based data analytics, utilities now are able to find, quantify and reduce losses faster – and with a smaller IT footprint. Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
