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.
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.
Bring Haiku up to Epic Standards
Haiku could be a primary way to draft notes on rounds and clinic but it functions more as an afterthought as opposed to a primary resource. It is the best potential pathway to add dictated content to Epic. Almost all notes in Epic desktop are templated and pull data into the note. That Haiku does not allow creating templated notes is unacceptable. Look at other EMR vendors apps. Creating a dictated final form note is easy in at least one major vendors app and has lead to rapid adoption by more than half of the providers at one of our hospitals. Almost nobody uses Haiku to create notes in our Epic based hospitals. Make Haiku shine like Epic desktop and you will vastly amplify the utility and desirability of Epic in general.
