Simple Medical Software Inc. Launches Newest Medical App, SimpleRounds® for Apple iOS and Android

Simple Medical Software Inc. (SMSI) has developed SimpleRounds®, a mobile medical platform that allows medical practitioners to centralize healthcare communication at the patient level, which is essential for healthcare providers to collaborate on patient care and significantly reduce miscommunications that result in medical errors.

The mobile medical platform offers six first-rate features, which include:

  • Secure messaging: Allows full texting with members of the healthcare team and providers across different settings (hospice, nursing facilities, hospitals, etc.) while remaining fully HIPAA compliant.
  • Billing manager: Error-free billing solution allows doctors to send their billing staff pertinent information, pictures, memos and to communicate with them while remaining compliant, all this from the patient’s bedside.
  • Rounds manager: Easy-to-use task manager for inpatient hospital visits lets doctors add notes, memos & set-up shared reminders for important tasks.
  • Sign-out manager: Transfer all of a doctor’s patients when away, along with any pending tasks to the covering provider in less than one minute.
  • Patient census: Organized cloud-based list of a doctor’s patient census. Patient details can be easily transferred between providers.
  • Physician directory: Quick access to information from physicians within your practice or a local area.

SimpleRounds was first developed by Dr. Manuel Martinez, physician and a medical director for the Gonzaba Medical Group, who found a need for secured communication in regards to sharing and reading patient information in his own daily practice. Dr. Martinez sought out the expertise of Rubén Zamorano, lead executive and founder at Simple Medical Software Inc. Zamorano brings experience as co-founder and President of Diabetica Solutions (formerly known as Xilas Medical Inc.), Vice-President of LifeQuest Medical (Nasdaq: LQMD) and has served as founder and other key roles in various biomedical startups.

Philip G. Trent, Vice-President of sales and marketing, comes to Simple Medical Software Inc. after working at InVentiv Health (NASDAQ:VTIV), a multi-service company in ethical pharmaceutical sales, where he served as a turnaround strategist. Completing the team is José Luis Bravo, Vice-President of business development and an entrepreneur with experience in international business.


The app is free to download for iOS7 and Android 4.0 and is available currently in the United States. The basic plan is offered at no cost to those users who will text from their smartphone only. Integration with the office or Answering service costs $80 per month per provider and can range up to $180 per month per provider for the optional inclusion of the billing functions.

SimpleRounds is revolutionizing secure, HIPAA-compliant communication among physicians. Using a patent pending method to share patient information, SimpleRounds is cloud-based thus minimizing tedious data entry, and keeps a secure, HIPAA-compliant database of patients that can be easily shared with other physicians involved in patient care. SimpleRounds will simplify physicians‘ daily workflow by allowing them to securely text with colleagues, keep and share inpatient census lists, facilitate on-call duties and simplify billing.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers.
