In order to make the iPod Touch, and thus the app, fit for a clinical setting, PatientSafe Solutions also provides an iPod Touch case that protects the device from liquids and drops, includes an extra battery pack, and comes with a bar code scanner.

Other EHR software companies have also included mobile options that can integrate with their EHR systems. However, PatientTouch offers hospitals a more overall management tool that is simple and efficient. So far around 7,000 PatientTouch devices are used on a daily basis.
