We all realize that working is a hospital isn’t a piece of cake and all those long hours can be quite a wear off. Now, with community care centers and residential clinics being filled with patients from different socio-economical structures it isn’t that easy for the clinicians to give adequate care to each and every one of them. And one of the biggest problems with this is writing down the visits and medical history in an electronic medical record – a lot of clinicians aren’t satisfied with it right now, and it is known to take them hours of time even after their regular work time is over.
Saying this, EMR isn’t as effective as it should be and no one is a fan of sitting by and documenting it in for countless hours. That is why Carescribr development team decided to come in and try to help with a cloud-based app that will boost the workflow and let the clinicians focus on what really matters – primary health care. Now, the Carescribr application isn’t still out, and the team said they would be giving out free Beta versions to people during the spring of 2019. Still, we are informed on the concept of the application, and by that, it can bring quite a reform in the medical documentation system. Let’s go ahead and take a look at some of the features!
The Features Of Carescribr
First and foremost, the application will work as a cloud-note platform that will be easy to use and available to store numerous medical history and visit information. With this in mind, you will be able to have an organized pre-visit plan that will save your time from and let you work more effectively. And that is what is so great about this app – with fewer hours invested in EMR documentation you will be able to actually do your job instead of filling in administration info half of the day. Along with that, a highly innovative thing is the fact that patients will be available to note down their medical history as well (using a tablet) in both English and native Spanish language. Because there are many Hispanic people in the primary and community care centers, this will be of great benefit both to them and clinicians that will be able to later translate the information in Spanish to English, and that information will be visible to anyone that has interest in it.
With the patients becoming a part of the medical team the clinicians will be able to track their progress over this cloud-based platform and determine the priorities. And as they will be doing part of the documentation, you will have more of your own time to go ahead, talk to them and discuss on further treatment measures.
It will be able to screen delays as well, and with surveys given this app will allow the patients to be screened for certain social determinants of their health.
Though this Carescribr app is yet to be finished and published, it is something that gives high hopes to clinicians and community centers. It has a high potential of simplifying the documentation process and thus giving more space and time to the clinicians to effectively help their patients. And as this app will be in both English and Spanish all the hardships of translating or possible misunderstanding between the patient and clinician will be gone. We are yet to see the preview of this application, and how will it work in practice but by what the development team has published so far it is fair to hope for the best!
