About Smartcare, in their own words (full bios here, in Word)
SmartCare is a healthcare platform that provides easy, more-secure
sharing of patient information without the need to completely replace
existing information technology infrastructure. Relying on electronic
medical record standards such as Health Level Seven (HL7) and
Continuity of Care Record (CCR), hospitals will be able to interface
with the SmartCare system to connect, search and correspond with the
national network of healthcare providers.
SmartCare also provides the tools to use this information
toward more efficient management of appointments, tasks and
communications for healthcare workers. Through the SmartCare Task
Scheduler, a patient’s medical records will be analyzed alongside
dynamic feeds of vital signs and other monitoring information to
provide hospital wards with improved tracking, alert and
Team Smartcare utilized the Microsoft® .NET Framework to its fullest.
ASP.NET, ADO.NET and XML Web services are used to create the Web
interfaces necessary to interconnect medical databases. The SmartCare
Task Scheduler runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile™ 2003 software for
Pocket PCs and uses Visual C#® under the .NET Compact Framework 1.1.
