Unable to use for more than one hospital and no vital signs
The app should allow you to toggle between multiple - (at least two) hospitals organizations so that you have access to patient care while you’re on the move. Realistically many physicians care for pts at more than one place and access makes it easier for us to provide pt care.
Also, the app does not provide anything more than stagnant vitals (like a single not even complete set obtained during some point of the hospitalization). A tab for vitals (that can be customized [because maybe all I care about are MAPs, etc]) similar to the tab for lab results would go a long way in making this app much more functional for those of us tracking pts over the course of the day and making pt care decisions.
The alert/notify me function is very helpful.
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.
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.
