InVivoLink launches mobile app

Local health care information technology company InVivoLink has launched a mobile version of its web-based software tool for scheduling and managing inventory for implant surgeries. The application — called “Remote Control” — works on the iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry devices to help hospitals, physicians and medical device manufacturers more easily coordinate total joint replacement implant procedures. The company’s web-based tool also tracks data before, during and after surgical procedures to help clinicians measure clinical, financial and operational outcomes. “We’re actually solving business workflow problems, we’re solving patient care problems, we’re helping the physicians be more productive and efficient,” said CEO Ryan Wells, “and that’s how you get the model to expand throughout the country.” Nashville-based InVivoLink currently has 15 employees and about 100 customers.
