Daou Systems to offer mobile health consulting services
Daou Systems Inc. has added mobile healthcare consulting services to its portfolio to help providers adopt new technologies.

The new consulting services also are designed to help providers, payers and government organizations implement new technologies, such as mobile hardware; extend the life of their existing systems; and optimize newer clinical information systems.

The Exton, Pa.-based firm's new R.A.P.I.D. I.T. Solutions consists of four areas of consulting services -- mobile health, Web services, systems integration and business process alignment.

The mobile health consulting services are designed to help healthcare organizations build a wireless infrastructure to enable remote mobile hardware to access legacy applications across all facilities. Daou's consulting firm will help healthcare organizations design and implement a wireless infrastructure, evaluate business processes and workflow to reflect the new mobile initiative, implement Web services over the new infrastructure, and educate and train employees on the new technology.
