USA Mobility Wireless, the wireless subsidiary of USA Mobility, Inc. (Nasdaq: USMO), today announced the release of Amcom Mobile Connect (AMC) Select, which it developed with Amcom Software. The hosted solution enables critical messages sent to USA Mobility Wireless pager numbers to be received on smartphones instead of pagers. The AMC Select application offers hospitals an easy method of moving to smartphone communications for physicians and other staff members who wish to use a single device for encrypted, critical messages.
AMC Select uses industry standard best practices to help ensure the protection of sensitive electronic protected health information (ePHI) in accordance with guidelines from HIPAA and the HITECH Act. It also helps clinicians achieve closed-loop communications with automated message delivery receipts and free-form text response capabilities. The date and time of all communications are logged in an audit trail. All of this is accomplished without changing the way messages are sent or updating pager numbers, providing a fast and easy method of incorporating smartphones.
Smartphone users simply download an application to connect to AMC Select, which is hosted, maintained, and billed by USA Mobility Wireless. Once registered, users have a secure method of communicating on consult requests and many other types of important patient care situations.
“The development of AMC Select is a collaborative by-product of our 2011 acquisition of Amcom Software,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer of USA Mobility, Inc. “For our customers, this unique solution is a seamless way to incorporate the power of smartphones and advanced security practices within their existing communications processes.”About Amcom Software Amcom Software, a subsidiary of USA Mobility, Inc., connects people to each other and to the data they need.
