I had the opportunity to spend some time with ClearPractice’s VP of Sales, Simon Lee while in Orlando at HIMSS. We spent most of that time talking about Nimble, their comprehensive EMR solution for the iPad platform. The Nimble interface is beautifully done and it’s obvious it was designed specifically for the iPad.
Their marketing materials take full advantage of the Nimble name with pages titled Be Nimble at the Office, Be Nimble at the Hospital and of course Be Nimble at Home.
It’s a well designed EMR app that is fully integrated with their ClearPractice EMR system. The app was released in the App Store on September 28, 2010.
Here’s the interview:
