IRVINE, Calif., June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kareo, a leading provider of cloud-based practice management and medical billing software, announced today the release of a free iPhone app that conveniently enables physicians and other medical professionals to keep track of their schedule and stay on time, literally putting appointments and other patient information in the palm of the providers' hands.
"We asked our physicians to give us their top priority for a mobile app," said Dan Rodrigues, CEO and Founder of Kareo. "Hands down, their #1 request was the ability to see their office's patient appointment schedule on their iPhone. We immediately began developing our app, and I'm excited that it is already available on the App Store."
The Kareo iPhone App, designed as a companion to Kareo's medical billing software, displays up-to-the minute appointments, showing all the patients on the clinic's schedule and the reason for each visit. Medical professionals can also see important information like the patient's status (scheduled, already in the office, or already seen), plus patient alerts, other valuable notes from office staff, and patient phone numbers, making it easy to stay informed.
The free Kareo iPhone app can be downloaded today by visiting the App Store. Any medical practice using Kareo for appointment scheduling , included in the Complete or Max plans, can begin using the iPhone app immediately after downloading it by logging in with their Kareo username and password.
