Gainesville, FL – January 15, 2003.
Shands HealthCare has chosen Phoneomena Inc., an innovative mobile application and middleware company, to mobilize its patient care system. By using Phoneomena’s eXtensible Medical Application Development Platform technology™, Shands HealthCare will mobilize its existing medical applications created using EAGLE (Enhanced Application Generation Language for the Enterprise) for deployment on thousands of Motorola iDEN Java phones serviced by Nextel Communications.

The sought mobile patient care system is expected to increase the availability and productivity of its users (Physicians/Residents), and is expected to provide a high level of automation of the flow of work according to dynamically changeable business rules.
