Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This is the rare app that seems to be getting worse with time. I am okay with the extremely limited functionality. What bothers me is that logging in is becoming increasingly difficult. There is no support for Face ID or Touch ID. Even when you use one of these features to access your list of saved passwords, it will not pull up the account information for this app at the top of the list as virtually every other app does. This means you have to search for it manually from your entire list of accounts. Even once you select the correct one, it frequently fails to actually input the password. This often leads to having to manually type it in, one character at a time, after several failed attempts to have it auto filled.
Smart links are a must have for Haiku
Haiku is the platform I use the most to interact with my institution’s EMR especially on the inpatient side. My rounding starts with it, and most of my work is done from Haiku, reviewing recent vitals, labs, putting orders, adjusting meds, etc.. I also start my notes using the in-app dictation feature right after I see a patient and even do my billing from Haiku but unfortunately I cannot finish my notes in Haiku because of the lack of smart links that are routinely used in notes (meds, vitals, labs, I/O) to be able to properly bill. Without smart links in Haiku one have to go to the desktop at the end of the day to finish notes. To improve rounding efficiency smart links have to be added to haiku note writing. ALL providers use their phone haiku apps to round, I have rarely seen any use canto on iPad and thus more improvements and development should be done on Haiku.
Missing major feature
Still highly limited app. Can not view handoffs which contradicts the goal of being a paperless system. Also does not show certain notes written including “significant event” notes which are usually extremely important documentation of a recent emergent event. Wish they reviewed all these comments and attempted to make adjustments to the app but I have yet to notice any evidence of improvement based on user feedback.
This app has very limited utility from a clinical perspective. You cannot review the medication administration history to determine if and when meds were recently given. You also cannot see the handoffs for the patients (let alone modify them) which in my opinion would be one of the most obvious and important functions to have on an EMR phone application.
Also, face/fingerprint identification frequently is “unavailable” and requires you to manual put in your password. I have not figured out what causes this to happen. Doesn’t seem to be based on the type of internet connection and doesn’t seem to be based on how long it has been since you last signed into the app.
