Epic releases Haiku for the iPhone.  I really don’t know much more than Epic’s description on the iPhone App Store at this point. We’ve heard a couple of grumblings about performance. If anyone out there has had a chance to use it, let us know what you think.

Healthcare Data Solutions announces the release of PrescriberPRO Mobile. The Windows Mobile and Blackberry compatible solution provides access to HDS’ full database of more than 1,000,000 healthcare providers and facilities. Users can search by hospital, pharmacy, provider name, GPS location, city, state, NPI or DEA number. I’m not sure if this is better for traveling salesmen or CMS auditors.

IQmax has been busy developing channel partners. First, they announce a partnership with Fast Chart to provide the IQmax web-based mobile dictation platform to Fast Chart customers. IQmax then announces a partnership with 3M Health Information Systems to offer IQmax’s enterprise mobility technology with 3M’s dictation and transcription solutions. In other words, IQmax is the little man behind the curtain of 3M’s recent entry into mobile dictation capture. (For more information about IQmax’s market strategy, check back later for an exclusive interview with Paul Adkison, IQmax CEO and Founder.)

For their part, 3M HIS announces the release of their next generation unified services platform – Platform 7, Feature Pack 2 [rolls off the tongue quite nicely]. The latest version promises streamlined provider workflow, increased transcriptionist productivity, and improved document accuracy. I have to say, I like 3M’s style – extending their solution through a cool partner app while simultaneously enhancing their core technology. Why can’t all companies think like that?

Before getting into healthcare specific news items, I would like to offer up my prediction for 2010 – It’s going to be a big year for mobility. The truly insightful predictions that I seem to be coming across a lot lately, it being the new year and all, go so far as to predict an explosive year.

One such subtle, nuanced sign… the Apple App store tops 3 billion downloads.  And if the iPhone’s success were not enough, excitement continues to grow in anticipation of Apple’s tablet expected to be unveiled later this month and to begin shipping as early as March.  Rumor further has it that, not to be outgunned (again) by Google, Apple has just acquired mobile advertising company Quattro Wireless for $275 million.
