- IT services provider Kainos has launched a mobile-enabled healthcare platform, designed to give healthcare providers and carers secure access to patient information, regardless of location.

The new platform builds on the capabilities of Kainos Evolve's market-leading electronic medical records (EMR) offering and enables new applications developed by Kainos, its partners and customers to store, access, process and share patient information securely.

It supports easy integration with other clinical systems using healthcare interoperability standards and is accessed using mobile applications that have been developed exclusively for iOS and Apple Watch.

The new platform is available on-premise, hosted or in the cloud and is designed to meet the requirements of an increasingly diverse healthcare market, from large hospitals through to community and emergency care providers.

Kainos's commitment to Apple was reinforced at Apple's Q3 conference call on 21 July, where Apple's CFO Luca Maestri confirmed that Apple is working with select mobility partners, including Kainos.

Kainos chief executive Brendan Mooney said: "We are delighted to announce this new platform which will help deliver better healthcare outcomes at a lower cost. This is an important step for Evolve towards realising our vision to make healthcare delivery easier through technology, and we are pleased to be working with Apple at this time.

"As we grow our traditional customer base in the NHS and expand into new geographical markets, we see the opportunity to enable fundamental change in the delivery of care through this next generation of mobility."
