Imagine an EHR for eyecare professionals with rich editing capabilities similar to Evernote or OneNote. Multiple people could edit the same chart notes at the same time. You'd be able to view exam notes with embedded anterior or posterior segment images. It would have intuitive drawing capabilities so you could quickly sketch pathology and easily refer to your sketches from past exams. You'd be able to use your smartphone or tablet device to take pictures and embed them anywhere in the chart, as you do with other mainstream apps. You could compare test results, like Visual Fields and OCT, side-by-side, year-over-year. And you'd be able to easily compare exam notes across several patient encounters like you can with handwritten notes, except it would be quicker, richer, and easier-to-navigate.
In short, think about an EHR product that takes those things at which the paper chart excels, and enhances and augments them so that you can engage with your patients in new and powerful ways.
That's the EHR product we'd like to use. And that's what we're building for ourselves. And we'd like to share it with you.
We're making FlowChart EHR™, a different kind of ophthalmic software. One which we hope provides a truly meaningful interaction with technology rather than simply checking off meaningful use requirements (although it'll do that, too). We think we can become better doctors through the use of better technology. If that interests you, and you'd like to be among the first to hear about our exclusive upcoming free trial, then please sign up for our weekly email newsletter so we can stay in touch.
