openQ Introduces MobileQ for the Apple's iPad
Published: Apr 14, 2011
MobileQ offers several advantages distinctive among mobile solutions. The first thing users will notice is that it provides a native application. In stark contrast to solutions reformatted to fit the Safari browser, a native application enables customers to leverage the intuitive user interface designed to take advantage of the iPad’s tablet format. Features like drag and drop, scrolling, and multi-touch are an integral part of the experience.
Functionality in MobileQ is tightly integrated. Users can review healthcare provider (HCP) and stakeholder profiles, record interactions (including off-label inquiries), share controlled and pre- approved content, and much more all from within a single application. In addition to the convenience of a single solution, customers get a full audit trail with actionable context. This means that someone in the field can record information and review content and a manager at headquarters has the ability to analyze the data to help tune the content. For example, they may look for a correlation between particular slides and off-label inquiries. Those slides can then be updated to provide more clarity and avoid content that drives off-label activity. The updated content is then automatically pushed out onto the iPad for future use. All capabilities are also available to iPad users while offline, allowing users to browse content and profiles as well as record interactions while disconnected. Data then synchronizes when the device is back online.
“We’re very excited about the new functionality the iPad brings to our customers,” said Matt Prentis, Director of Product Management at OpenQ. “The iPad allows OpenQ solutions to be at the point of interaction between users and HCPs. Imagine being able to immediately respond to an HCP’s question with the latest content, then have this automatically become part of your interaction notes. This provides a higher quality interaction in the field, while providing headquarters with much greater insight into those engagements and associated content utilization.”
