Ratings and Reviews
Loss of flowsheets and viewing current labs first
With the new updates we lost flowsheets and labs vital signs and also lost viewing only current labs first and the ability to pull up old labs now the laboratory screen is filled with The clutter of old laboratory results that Are of no importance to the current day placing orders are slower constantly verification of patient physician relationship and is slow. Microbiology not available such as cultures and sensitivity, all charge after discharge not accessible, medication history dosing scheduled of current inpatient orders not available. All this should be available just like they are on otherPrograms. Can’t believe it’s not done.
Old version preferred
When the new update came we lost an important trend review for data. For example, when a lab was selected a double tap would open the details of the lab and include a graph trend of the measured value over time. This was very valuable for many types of measurements including, vitals, specific blood pressure trends, heart rates, and important lab values. Now with the update, vitals are not available in a trend view, nor labs. Labs are only listed by dates, and not easily accessed like before. Our team rounds appreciated the ease of data access and mobility throughout the hospital on our service and power touch expedited our rounding, now since the update the data is not as timely/accurately updated, and the trending capabilities are absent. Very disappointed in the updates. Please bring back the trending graphs and detailed views of vitals and labs that were available before.
Dictation is spot on 100% and a time saver, but not used anymore by our team since graphing trend review was taken away.
This used to be a really great app, but it just keeps getting worse and worse. It seems as though you are trying to make it obsolete. Starting today it now logs out after about 10 minutes, even if I’m using the app. The display for lab results is basically useless as you can no longer look up just by the most recent labs. If I leave the app to go to another app, when I come back it goes back to the patient homepage, not where I was 30 seconds ago. When I log in for the day, it is still on the previous day. Please restore this to the functional efficient app that it previously was.
