Since Mitochon’s closest free EMR competitor, Practice Fusion, uses a platform built primarily on Flash, physicians are experiencing significant usability issues when used on mobile based, non-Flash compliant mobile platforms. “Our EMR was built to deal with the reality that physicians want to be mobile while they are practicing medicine, whether is it down the hall, down the street or across the country. We want to support their desire to practice from wherever they choose.” said Chris Riley, Mitochon Systems Chief Executive Officer.
“While Flash is aesthetically pleasing, it hasn’t been adopted by many mobile based platforms because of issues with speed and system support.” said Chris Riley, Mitochon Systems Chief Executive Officer. “Physicians who are looking to interact with their office or EMR using their IPhone, IPad or Android will experience significant functionality and usability obstacles with the Practice Fusion EMR, or other Flash-driven EMR systems. With Mitochon’s EMR, they’ll be off and running.”
