The AmeriHealth Mercy Family of Companies, which operates Medicaid managed plans covering 4 million beneficiaries, is offering physicians free access to patient information at the point of care via mobile computing devices.

The insurer is using the NaviNet Mobile Connect care management platform of Boston-based NaviNet. Features include electronic prescribing and clinical alerts for gaps in care, medication histories and medication adherence. The service initially will start in Pennsylvania before expanding to other service areas.

NaviNet's mobile platform was designed to integrate with practice management systems and support iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android and Windows devices. AmeriHealth first offered physician access to patient information via desktops in 2009 and had a 57 percent increase in closure of care gaps when alerts were viewed, according to the company.
