Upstate Medical Alumni Association 2014: Is There an App for That? THE APP: iClickCare is a HIPAA-secure solution for collaborating with other health care professionals via the iPhone, iPad or a computer. iClickCare® enables healthcare providers to “talk” with their colleagues using text, pictures, video, and PDF, and provides a secure archive of cases.
WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM? Personal need. In the 1990s, while working as a pediatrician at United Health Services in Binghamton, Cheryl needed a means to advise and assist nurse practioners in offsite school-based clinics. With email and the internet gaining common use, she and Larry developed a computer system in 1995, ClickCare, which provided a telemedicine link between the UHS pediatric office and the centers. They began offering ClickCare for commercial sale to other providers via clickcare.com beginning in 2006. In 2010, with the proliferation of the iPhone, the Kerrs created iClickCare for the iPhone as well as the computer. More...
From Google 2013: The New York Business Development Center selected ClickCare, LLC, owned by Drs. Cheryl and Lawrence Kerr in Vestal, for the Small Business Excellence Award. The idea for ClickCare came from a simple exchange in 1995 between a school nurse and the pediatrician Dr. Kerr. A photo was sent over distance learning lines for help with the diagnosis and planning. This inspired Drs. Cheryl and Lawrence Kerr to spend 18 years developing and improving what ClickCare offers. Their product is a cutting-edge telemedicine service that provides a HIPAA secure transfer of pictures, video and medical information. iClickCare saves patient travel and doctors’ time, provides specialized medical expertise to rural areas, and provides quick turnaround of medical recommendations for the patient from the appropriate specialist.
Prestonwood Rehabilitation 2013: Meritt Robinson, Director of Nursing, Prestonwood Rehabilitation: "With iClickCare we have the ability to refer back to online conversations, visit details and pictures which has assisted in many improved outcomes for patients.
We also market this HIPAA secure technology to consultant physicians...we upload films and reports from our mobile x-ray service into iClickCare and send to our orthopedic consultants." More...
Reed V. Tuckson, MD, ATA 2013: Managing director of Tuckson Health Connections, offered a spirited keynote speech that pointed out the failures of today's fragmented healthcare system and offered up telemedicine as a solution. "Forget fee-for-service," he said, "and focus on value-based design".

HomeHealthNews 2013: "Meaningful Use" Continues to Evolve But Mostly Outside of Home Healthcare While iClickCare augments and enriches EHRs, it is not an EHR. iClickCare is an online wound care tool, a collaborative tool to help you get through the day better.
One of our customers asked if iClickCare had "meaningful use." Our first thought was, of course it’s meaningful -- that’s the whole point. If we empower medical providers to collaborate among themselves in a simple and easy manner, everybody wins. Most importantly, patients win, but providers win too.
Providers know they’re doing the right thing by working together, and they see that it’s not so hard. Indeed, collaborating with iClickCare is easier to than playing telephone tag, even if you need to slow down for a few seconds to take a picture and write a brief history and question. More...

HandsOnTelehealth 2013: Doctors in telehealth businesses I met Dr. Kerr at the ATA 2012 conference. She is down-to-earth and passionate about making virtual collaboration simple, accessible, and innovative.
Dr. Kerr took time to speak with me about ClickCare’s history, how it has continued innovating in telehealth over the years, and how Steve Wozniak gave them a plug during his keynote. Their story is a great example of how to grow telemedicine solutions based on a practical need and continually adapt to new advances in technology.

iTriage 2012: What is Telemedicine? Benefits, Challenges, and Changing Relationships According to the American Telemedicine Association, telemedicine is defined as "the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve patients' health status."
"The body of medical knowledge has exploded so much that it’s difficult for one person to master it all," says Lawrence P. Kerr, MD, FACS, COO of iClickCare, a software service over the internet that lets doctors, nurses and other caregivers collaborate on behalf of the patient securely and simply with pictures and words. "Sharing knowledge in an easy way is paramount to the good care of the patient. As Albert Einstein said, 'No one of us is as smart as all of us.' Telemedicine reduces communication barriers." More...
Blog for the Strategic Innovation MBA Course at Vanderbilt University, Nida Bajwa 2012: A few years ago, my doctor coordinated my medical care via an online tool called ClickCare and while I was initially hesitant to engage in "virtual" healthcare services, I ended up being impressed with it. I will note however that I had met with and seen my doctor a few times prior to using this tool, thus I was willing to be a part of his pilot project and he conducted my follow up appointments via the tool. Clickcare [now iClickCare] essentially allows healthcare professionals to leverage text, photos and video capabilities to deliver their services as most other consultants already do. I think this is a great social innovation as it saves time for both the doctor and patient and allows care/treatment to sometimes be delivered faster than normal because you don't have to wait weeks for an appointment or even hours in a waiting room.
This innovation also has huge implications for providing healthcare and relief to underserved areas. More...
SoftwareConsortium 2012: Healthcare Disruption -- Apps and Federal Incentives A mobile app requires special attention be paid to issues of privacy, security and interoperability, the benefits of going mobile in health are becoming clearer.

HealthCallings 2012: Put Your Tech-Smarts to Work in Telemedicine Here’s the irony of telemedicine: Caregivers like physicians, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners are finding that by treating and accessing treatment for people remotely -- using telecommunications technology -- they can actually provide more complete, integrated care.
In fact, Dr. Lawrence Kerr, COO and co-founder of remote-care company ClickCare, says underserved patients everywhere can be better served through telemedicine.
The iClickCare platform allows a caregiver to post a photo visually depicting a patient’s condition, along with patient information on ClickCare’s site. The program sends a link to a participating consulting physician, who is able to respond to the photo and information. More...
SearchHealthIT 2012: Apple co-founder Wozniak -- iPhone mHealth apps simplify healthcare It was no surprise that Apple co-founder and American Telemedicine Association annual meeting keynote speaker Steve Wozniak felt that iPhone mHealth apps would play a role in the future of U.S. healthcare.

Quorum Medicine and Healthcare 2011: Can telemedicine relieve racial disparities in healthcare delivery to low-income minority populations in urban settings? How? To reduce disparities, the focus should be on the patient, and helping that patient overcome the challenges of both distance, but also time. If a telemedicine system can overcome these, then irregardless of race, better care is provided. Rural or urban, the challenge of time is always present. Rural or urban, the time to travel can be the same, even if the distance is shorter.
The development and corporate philosophy at ClickCare is Access, Collaboration, and Education. The patient needs access to the proper providers, collaboration among those providers is critical, and specific to racial disparity, education of those providers and future ones to follow, about the special needs that disparity brings is critical.

Making this all possible is iClickCare, a web-based, HIPAA compliant software service for medical collaboration that combines pictures, text, sounds and video (most file formats are supported). Developed in 1995 by pediatrician Cheryl Kerr, MD, of UHS Pediatrics Binghamton, and reconstructive surgeon Lawrence Kerr, MD, of UHS Plastic Surgery, iClickCare is easy to master and operate, and requires a computer and a digital camera, or a smartphone, with a broadband Internet connection.

eWeek 2010: HIPAA compliant iClickCare combines pictures, text, sound and videos, and enables healthcare workers to discuss patients securely over the web with colleagues. The whole process starts with a question or a need for collaboration. A healthcare worker just logs into iClickCare from the iPhone, a laptop or desktop. He/She adds the patient's demographics along with any number of digital photos, videos, sounds or other media. A question about the patient can be asked or a plan of treatment put forth.
TheProgressivePhysician, Jennifer Flaten 2010: Seeking a second opinion in a clinical setting is often as easy as walking into the next room and asking a colleague. However, it can become much more challenging for those physicians conducting home visits or operating as solo practitioners.
ClickCare says it has a solution. Doctors can use their iPhones to snap photos and send them securely via the Internet to fellow colleagues on the ClickCare network. This will help those doctors receive instant answers. The mobile consultation allows doctors to prescribe appropriate courses of treatment without having to unnecessarily relocate patients. More...
heal4woman.com 2009: ClickCare -- Collaboration Software with Images for Telemedicine & Telehealth Professionals Web-based telemedicine and telehealth collaboration, support, practical consultation service for healthcare providers, physicians, doctors, nurses, patients, worldwide. Complete solution with easy, multi-platform visual software.
Today's WoundClinic 2009: ClickCare, LLC was started in upstate New York in 1995 and is now supported throughout the world. Archives have been expanding since 2001 with the availability of digital cameras [and now taking pictures with a mobile device like the iPhone or iPad]. Medical students and pediatricians are enthusiastic about seeing each others multimedia teaching cases and about getting help from subspecialists. Interest in ClickCare continues to grow because of the need for the increase in collaboration -- designed by healthcare providers for healthcare providers.
ClickCare [now iClickCare], the telemedicine business that these experiences grew into, is used for problem solving. iClickCare enables multiple providers to collaborate on a case using pictures, words, and video, regardless of where the providers are or when they are able to check the case. iClickCare essentially combines the ease of email, the collaboration of an operating room, the security of HIPAA, and the richness of pictures and graphics.

Michael F. Moore, MD, FACS, CWS, FACCWS; Nanci Dobson, RN, CWCA: and Lisa Castellino, RN, CWCA, Wound Institute & Research Center, Dunmore, PA at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care 2009: Telemedicine technology enhances the ability of physicians to efficiently provide quality diagnostic and management services to problematic long-distance wound patients. Using an internet based model, skilled nursing facilities were able to access wound care consultations resulting in a decrease in transportation costs, more effective and efficient communication with the referring facilities, increase practice productivity and decrease stress to the patient population. Using iClickCare, eight skilled nursing patients or 10.2% required further evaluation and treatment at the Wound Institute, and the remaining 70 patients were able to be treated with an overall healing rate of 93% with an estimated savings of $24,000 in transportation costs in the 3 month period. iClickCare creates an environment of collaboration, mutual support, and exchange of opinion to improve patient care.
TeleHealthWorld 2009: An online software service, it aids in the collaboration among those who provide healthcare. The service allows doctors and nurses to collaborate from and to anywhere in the world with only a computer, a digital camera and the Internet.
Medical personnel can log into ClickCare [now iClickCare] to ask a question. They can enter basic demographic information about their patient in question and can include digital photos, videos, sounds or other media with the question. A consultant logs into the system to review questions and can type in the answer. All cases are automatically archived for teaching and future reference.
The telehealth industry has a need for a ubiquitous, affordable, and facile tool that replaces the telephone because it is as easy to use, but richer in content. The storing of consultations makes continuing education and surveillance a built-in benefit.
As we enter a period of debate and change, we need to focus on the patient. We are all patients, and we all deserve the right to the best care possible. This care also needs to be efficient because, if it is not, the only path to affordability is denial of care to some of us.
HomeCare Automation Report 2008: ClickCare extends reach of WOCNs ClickCare is an innovative company that has developed a useful secure online communication system where field nurses can store and forward text and digital photographs. Homecare agency wound care specialists can view them and collaborate with the nurse in the home regarding treatment.
ClickCare, based in Vestal, New York, was founded by physicians Lawrence and Cheryl Kerr. Dr. Cheryl Kerr, MD, FAAP, set up the first telemedicine link between a school health center and a pediatrician's office.
Entrepreneur Journeys 2008: ClickCare [now iClickCare] is a web-based service that allows medical practitioners to discuss cases with their colleagues with the use of pictures, text, sound and video. They help practitioners to collaborate and communicate via the web to recommend the best care for their patients.
[The company] obtained grants from such companies as Verizon and Time Warner Cable. Other support came from organizations such as the Neirmeyer Foundation and the Smile Train. ClickCare has also received government funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission, with matching funds from United Health Services and a planning grant from the American Academy of Pediatrics. More...
ServoyWorld 2006: ClickCare was awarded the Humanitarian Award for its initiative in guiding the healthcare industry toward better collaboration and decreased costs. Though this initiative is being spearheaded in the United States, there is already interest in the Dominican Republic, Kenya, and Europe. ClickCare started so that a grieving parent did not have to be the general contractor for his own sick child’s medical care, but, instead could begin to expect the professionals to collaborate on their own. And the rest is history!
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., supports the project and regularly checks on its progress. "They are clearly a leader in pediatric telemedicine," Clinton said in an email. "Indeed, their telemedicine project is potentially a model that may help improve access to quality healthcare services -- one of our greatest challenges today."
