AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Macheen Inc., a leading mobile application service provider for connected devices, today announced Easter Seals UCP North Carolina and Virginia as a customer of its Macheen Mobile Connect product.
Easter Seals UCP North Carolina and Virginia is a lifelong partner to families managing disabilities and mental health challenges. They serve more than 20,000 individuals and their families annual and last year delivered more than 3.3 million hours of quality support and services to individuals and families throughout North Caroline and in most areas of Virginia. Easter Seals searched for a cost-effective solution to enable its mobile healthcare workforce to stay connected to critical HIPAA-compliant applications while visiting hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
Electronic Health Record applications are cloud-based and must be filled out at the client site. As a non-profit, Easter Seals attempted smart phone tethering and other options to avoid prohibitive data plans. With Macheen Mobile Connect, Easter Seals was able to deploy a customizable service to pinpoint a mobile network Internet connection to just the critical Easter Seals application. Easter Seals UCP mobile therapists and medical health counselors are able to sign, approve and securely upload the necessary information while still in front of the client. "We looked at many solutions to solve the problem. I can't say enough about the Macheen capability," said Rod Vieiradarosa, Vice President of Information Technology at Easter Seals. "Not only was Macheen able to solve a difficult challenge but, we are also saving money, which as a non-profit, means more donation dollars go back into communities through the many programs we offer."
Macheen Mobile Connect enables companies to use general purpose hardware to roll out secure mobile workforce applications. Companies such as Easter Seals are able to reduce costs with cloud-based delivery of applications while ensuring mobile connectivity costs are targeted toward those applications. "It's very gratifying to see applications like Easter Seals. Mobile workforce productivity in their case is, quite literally, a life saver," says Richard Schwartz, President and CEO of Macheen Inc.
