OpenSpecimen’s mobile app development initiated
We are excited to announce the initiation of the “OpenSpecimen‘Mobile App’ development. The first version of the app will support patient registration, consents, questionnaires, and specimen collection. To enable offsite data collection in remote sites with no internet, the mobile app will also support the “offline data collection” mode. In future versions, users can look up details of specimens or boxes by scanning the labels. The first version of the mobile app will be released in Dec 2019 and will be enhanced in future releases based on customer feedback.
We just concluded our “Community Meet” in Cairns Australia. A big thanks to all our adopters for participating and making the meeting successful.
