Progress Notes, Next/Previous Patient & More – The November App Update

on November 28, 2012 Software Updates with 0 comments

We’ve added some new features that will make updating sign out more efficient, and improve patient safety and physician communication.

Here’s what’s new on the web as of 11/30/12

Blank Progress Note Generator

You can now generate basic progress notes for a patient that will automatically pull in the patient’s basic information (age, sex, weight, etc.), medications, and labs/imaging studies. By clicking on the “Generate Progress Note” link above the patient’s name, you can create the PDF, print it, and fill in the remainder of the note.

Navigate to Next/Previous Patient

You are now able to navigate more quickly through your patient list without revisiting the Dashboard by using the Next/Previous links at the top right of the Patient Details screens.

 Anticipated Discharge Field

A new field that helps doctors plan for a patient’s discharge has been added to the Visit Details section. You can set the anticipated discharge date and time for each patient in the Visit Details screen.

Your selection will display under the admission date on the patient’s detail card.

This is a great way to ensure all care providers are on the same page and planning appropriately to ensure a smooth and timely discharge from the hospital. You can add a task set with discharge-related tasks to ensure all items are checked off prior to the patient’s departure.

That’s it for now!
