RALEIGH, NC, November 18, 2014 – MobileSmith is pleased to announce the release of Freeman Everywhere hospital mobile app, created and published by its customer Freeman Health System using the MobileSmith mobile app development platform, without any coding.
Freeman is a 485-bed, three-hospital system providing comprehensive healthcare and behavioral health services to more than 450,000 patients across Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. To engage patients on their mobile devices, Freeman decided to create a native mobile app for iOS and Android smartphones, packed with useful features such as physician directory and streaming ER and Urgent Care wait times.
“We were impressed with how easy and quick it was to prototype, build and launch our Freeman Everywhere app with the MobileSmith platform,” said Liz Syer, Director of Marketing at Freeman. “We expect great results from our mobile app strategy, having designed our first app to meet our mobile patients’ needs as another convenience to stay in touch and up-to-date with our health system.”
The MobileSmith Platform empowers non-programmers at Freeman Health to take control over their organization’s mobile strategy. Its capabilities include:
- Quick and easy native app prototyping and over-the-air testing and delivery;
- Dedicated, role-based CMS access for easy app management;
- Platform Extensions allowing app creators to embed custom native or HTML5 functionality;
- Proximity-based messaging using Geofencing and beacon technologies.
“We are excited about the mobile app Freeman Health System has just launched with us,” said Robert Hancock, MobileSmith VP of Sales. “Patients’ mobile needs evolve quickly, and hospitals have to adopt an agile mobile strategy to meet those needs. MobileSmith is the ideal solution for accelerated native mobile development without breaking the bank.”
