Smile Digital Health Powers Nursit Apps for Germany

Simpatico is pleased to announce that Smile Digital Health has been selected as the FHIR platform for NursIT Institute’s upcoming FHIR app offerings.

NursIT Institute, voted one of the top 5 Digital Heath pioneers in Germany, targets small to large university hospitals to deliver a variety of SMART on FHIR applications to address functionality overlooked by existing EHR systems.

CareIT Pro is their first such application which improves nursing workflows and reduces nursing documentation. It saves 60 min per patient per day, while enhancing the documentation and information quality, improves quality of care and reduces readmissions.

“When we began development of CareIT Pro 2 years ago, we decided to focus on the front end user interaction and workflow aspect while working with a third party FHIR back end,” says Stoyan Halkaliev, CEO of NursIT Institute. “We wanted to go to market cost effectively while relying on the FHIR expertise of others which was not a core competency of our team at that time. After evaluating multiple options, we are very pleased to be working with Smile to enable us to build and deliver not just CareIT Pro but also future FHIR apps to our customer base.”

“NursIT Institute has been great to work with,” says James Agnew, CTO of Smile. “They anticipated the value of FHIR in addressing the needs of health care providers in areas such as interoperability and data privacy. For example, Smile will enable NursIT’s customers to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which specifies that providers are obligated to furnish patients with their health records on demand.”

CareIT Pro was recently presented at Medica and will be demonstrated at HIMSS 18. Let us know if you’d like to see it in action!
