Enhancements to Thomson Reuters' CareFocus clinical surveillance software enable the alerting of clinicians to changes in the status of high risk patients via e-mail or text messages to a mobile device.

CareFocus is part of the Clinical Xpert suite of software for mobile devices from the former MercuryMD, which New York-based Thomson Reuters acquired in 2006. Other enhancements include:

* Forms capture functions enabling clinicians to track and document interventions with patients at the point of care via a mobile device or Web portal;

* Expanded querying capability to identify at-risk patients via additional data elements from the medication administration record, working diagnosis and active orders display; and

* Customized summary reports on clinical activity and associated costs.
