- Friday, 01 May 2009
Healthcare providers can view, update, and share patient information from a handheld device.
PocketChart™, available in numerous medical specialty editions, is a wireless, handheld electronic medical record application that will help physicians increase productivity, reduce transcription costs, and increase revenue through improved code levels. PocketChart enables a PocketPC to synchronize with a desktop computer, allowing healthcare providers to continuously update, view, exchange, and print patient information. It is designed for use at point-of-care in a variety of clinical settings including hospitals, homes, and extended-care facilities.
PocketChart integrates numerous functions, allowing physicians to easily and quickly download patient lists, create patient notes in a HCFA-compliant format, transmit prescriptions to pharmacies, and capture billing codes. Electronic data entry helps promote medical record accuracy. The application also features over 300 clinically tested note templates, point-and-click operation with customizable menus, synchronized appointments and billing code reports, an E&M Code Wizard that reads and codes notes, and RxFax ePrescriber that electronically transmits prescriptions to pharmacies nationwide.
