Share on Facebook

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., has partnered with Novarus Healthcare on the development of apps that improve patient care and improve physician workflows.

In addition to clinical apps for physicians, some of the apps in development are consumer-facing, allowing patients to access medical information and connect with physicians.

"Medical practitioners want to connect with their patients in their homes, particularly before a patient enters the hospital," said Eric Tomlinson, PhD, chief innovation officer of WFBMC and president of Wake Forest Innovation Quarter, in a news release. "These easy-to-use tools will provide them with an effective way to do that."

The partners aim to have apps ready for testing within three months, and eventually market the apps to other providers.
