Ratings and Reviews
Does what it says.
Makes the MNA very easy and simple to complete. Easy to use format. I wish it had more helpful features. I don't like that it requires you to enter pt first and last name since i don't imagine anyone would use it to store patient information.
Useful for Hospice
I entered fake names, do not want to put pt names into my phone. Quick and easy for hospice but have to get its and weights some times. What about an IPad app?
