MobileSmith, a developer of apps aiming to improve healthcare, is getting a chance to grow nationally through a partnership with AT&T.
The companies announced they would include MobileSmith’s health platform known as Peri as part of AT&T’s Edge-to-Edge Digital Hospital Solutions.
MobileSmith (OTCBB: MOST) says its apps are designed to help better prepare patients for treatment and improve adherence through the providing of a wide variety of information and updates.
“Research shows that 17% of medical procedures are not executed due to lack of patient adherence to pre-op instructions. And not following post-op doctor’s orders can lead to costly readmissions,” said Rod Cruz, General Manager AT&T Healthcare Solutions, in the announcement. “Peri addresses these issues for providers and aligns with the digital health solutions that AT&T offers our clients – helping to improve health outcomes, patient experience and lower costs.” Originally published at WRAL TechWire
