Klinify is a document management system that helps private specialist clinics manage patient records while preserving their existing workflow. It takes 20 minutes to set up the software, scanner, and tablets. The clinic can stop paper from entering the clinic by substituting paper processes with Klinify’s tablet app – without any downtime.
Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems have failed to penetrate private clinics. Singapore’s $1bn NEHR is working for large hospitals but not for private clinics. Klinify believes that these top-down solutions have failed to gain traction with private GPs and specialists because the adoption dynamics have not been understood. Yet the problem is real.
Unique Value Proposition
Klinify helps doctors migrate to electronic records without changing their workflow. This makes migration to our system easy and gradual and minimizes the learning curve.
