Will Share Real-World Insights and Examples of Building a Successful Secure Messaging App to Meet the Needs of Clinicians

Raleigh, N.C. August 14, 2018MD Interconnect, a mobile health technology company, today announced that two of the company’s executives have been selected to present at the Epic App Orchard Conference 2018. Allie Lindahl, Nursing Administration Specialist with WakeMed Health and Hospitals, will join MD Interconnect’s Chief Technology Officer Jeffrey Kramer and Vice President of Customer Experience Rebecca Shelton for the presentation.

Together, they will discuss the challenges of creating an app that addresses the complexities of care coordination, disconnected systems, speed of technology and innovation. They will share their insights and experience on how to turn an original idea into a successful app, while judiciously and quickly overcoming the barriers inherent in today’s medical environment. Participants will walk away with a practical checklist to address four principle barriers and real life examples of how each played out in the development of RapidConnect for and with WakeMed clinicians.

MD Interconnect’s RapidConnect secure messaging app is available through the Epic App Orchard, providing an option for secure messaging in the EHR. The app provides immediate notification of inpatient consult requests, optimizes care continuity and facilitates real-time communication between physicians while reducing delays in patient care.
