I am currently investigating systems such as Tablet PC and other paperless systems for my chiropractic office which I am hoping to start up early 2006. I was wondering who, if anybody out there, had experience with Tablet PC and chiropractic offices.

TIA

I've been using Tabletpcs in my practice since 1986, when I had a Gridpad convertible. You can read about my experience here http://www.digital-doc.com/C2/EMR.htm and at www.Medicaltabletpc.com

Here is a summary:

I would venture to say, that there is nothing that a physician presently does with pen and paper, that could not be done more expediently on a Tabletpc. You can make template documents to be used on all your patients, like you do now with your exam and intake forms. You can write Rx scripts from Journal, and print to a networked/shared printer via wifi or even IR. Evernote , OneNote and GoBinder are robust applications that allow inking, voice and organization. A custom EMR can be made with any of these programs.
A doctor could use a scanner to input existing documents into the Tabletpc, that are presently used as paper. In other words, scan in the paperwork that you already use and now use the same paper work on your TabletPC. Alternatively, if documents are in Word format, you can use them on a Tabletpc or port them into Journal which would allow the user to write on top of the document like with a pen and paper. If you can find a quiet environment, you can dictate into your TPC. You can be wirelessly online with Wifi, and bookmark educational material for your patients that can be printed out at the point of care. You have the potential to network with other computers and send and receive information over the LAN or via email, if no LAN. (Labs could be emailed). With prudent backups, you will be shuffling pages with a stylus in nanoseconds instead of paper shuffling in a messy file. You can chart at the point of care and be finished at the point of care.

Eventually, sooner than later you should invest in a robust EMR. Here is my workflow on a TPC http://www.digital-doc.com/C2/EMRTpc.htm

Please take a look at the response from digital doc. He has been doing this for years and had a wonderful set up at his office.

For a great tablet pc, you might take a look at Tablet Kiosk - this is what I recommend for my physician clients. This is a top of the line light weight tablet that will do the job for you. It carries a very high rating and I use one myself to demonstrate my products!

My product is geared more towards the family practice MD, and I believe by looking at what Digital Doc has done will give you a real good idea. Keep tuned to his news page as well. I think he can give you some definite chiro specific advice.

Basically look at what the others said, it comes down to what works best for your uses. I don't know of any "chiporatic" tablet nor an "education" tablet etc, IE it depends on what you need.

I use MicroFour's Practice Studio on a Toshiba M200 and it works great. They offer software for a PDA (Dell) as well.

I have found some patient education software out there that is amazing! It works well for the tablet. I think it was designed for the tablet. Anyway, it is at [url]www.3d-rx.com[/url]

The 3d animations tell the story for all sorts of conditions. I can draw on the animations and it keeps it as part of the patient record automatically. -- I'm still blown away.
