SAN ANTONIO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 14, 2014 — Simple Medical Software Inc. (SMSI) has developed SimpleRounds®, a mobile medical platform that allows medical practitioners to centralize healthcare communication at the patient level, which is essential for healthcare providers to collaborate on patient care and significantly reduce miscommunications that result in medical errors.
The mobile medical platform offers six first-rate features, which include:
- Secure messaging: Allows full texting with members of the healthcare team and providers across different settings (hospice, nursing facilities, hospitals, etc.) while remaining fully HIPAA compliant.
- Billing manager: Error-free billing solution allows doctors to send their billing staff pertinent information, pictures, memos and to communicate with them while remaining compliant, all this from the patient’s bedside.
- Rounds manager: Easy-to-use task manager for inpatient hospital visits lets doctors add notes, memos & set-up shared reminders for important tasks.
- Sign-out manager: Transfer all of a doctor’s patients when away, along with any pending tasks to the covering provider in less than one minute.
- Patient census: Organized cloud-based list of a doctor’s patient census. Patient details can be easily transferred between providers.
- Physician directory: Quick access to information from physicians within your practice or a local area.
SimpleRounds was first developed by Dr. Manuel Martinez, physician and a medical director for the Gonzaba Medical Group, who found a need for secured communication in regards to sharing and reading patient information in his own daily practice. Dr. Martinez sought out the expertise of Rubén Zamorano, lead executive and founder at Simple Medical Software Inc. Zamorano brings experience as co-founder and President of Diabetica Solutions (formerly known as Xilas Medical Inc.), Vice-President of LifeQuest Medical (Nasdaq: LQMD) and has served as founder and other key roles in various biomedical startups.
Philip G. Trent, Vice-President of sales and marketing, comes to Simple Medical Software Inc. after working at InVentiv Health (NASDAQ: VTIV), a multi-service company in ethical pharmaceutical sales, where he served as a turnaround strategist. Completing the team is José Luis Bravo, Vice-President of business development and an entrepreneur with experience in international business.

Integration with the office or Answering service costs $80 per month per provider and can range up to $180 per month per provider for the optional inclusion of the billing functions.
