Patient Chart Manager is a comprehensive and flexible EMR system that enables physicians to access and input clinical information. With such access, physicians can make better clinical decisions, each and every time they see patients.

Patient Chart Manager’s capabilities also include care planning, prescription management, and digital document and image management.

The system’s easy-to-use screens enable users to:

  • Add new patients
  • Automatically fill out forms (Worker’s Compensation, prescriptions, hospital forms, home health forms, immunization records, etc.)
  • View appointment schedules
  • Locate patient charts via a variety of search criteria choices
  • Point and click on a patient’s name to open a complete patient chart

In addition, Patient Chart Manager enables doctors to choose how they want to input information, whether by keyboard using advanced templating and dropdown lists or by using pen (Stylus) writing on the screen. Either handwriting recognition or voice recognition enhance these capabilities. In cases where physicians want to continue to use paper, Patient Chart Manager can accommodate them by automating bar-coded forms for high speed scanning.
