Technological advancements in healthcare mean a longer and healthier life for us all. It is clear that EHR apps are catching public attention and becoming more mainstream now. Mobile EHR on iOS and Android devices are the fastest growing areas in the EHR market and such apps have also proven to be effective in improving practice efficiency. This makes evident the need for pick-and-choose app store solutions for healthcare providers and their patients.

What is an EHR App Store/Marketplace?

The first iPhone was released in 2007, paving the way for the smartphone revolution. The meteoric rise of iOS and Android operating systems can be attributed mostly to the way they promoted the innovative development and delivery of integrated applications. While on the front end the mobile phone users can choose specific apps to meet their needs, on the back end these apps are granted limited access to the system’s resources and data. 

This allows the users to enjoy the apps while device security is ensured. Now we have something similar in the field of healthcare technology which allows innovators to design apps that can be integrated securely with a variety of electronic health record (EHR) platforms.

Just as you go to Amazon or any other online store to buy your groceries or apparels, you drop in at consumer app stores like Google Play or Apple’s App Store to download your chosen free/paid mobile apps. The healthcare industry has also, finally, jumped in on the app store bandwagon. 

Focused healthcare app stores like EHR app stores, are online app marketplaces for patients, physicians and other healthcare providers to access and download relevant EHR-based applications. Such EHR application marketplaces are commonly created by EHR vendors who allow users to download apps from third-party developers who use their healthcare software development infrastructure.
