I was hoping to gain some advice on software applications for progress notes, daily notes, general medical documentation for a Physical therapy clinic. We would like to implement Tablets or laptops for all of our documentation. The problem is we have a very small practice - only two physical therapists. I have looked at some of the high end packages like Medinotes, Advantage, ReDoc, etc, and they are all out of our price range (from $5-10,000 plus monthly fees in the $100's) This would be too much of a drain on our small practice.

I am very new to tablets, in fact I have never actually seen one - just been reading about them on the WWW. I don't fully understand how they work. The only good information I have gotten so far has been from software salesman, who have been very high pressure.

My question is... does anyone have any thoughts on a less expensive alternative that would alow us to keep a patients chart with a tablet PC? We just need general SOAP note capability, preferably with pull down menus, or the ability to edit from a previous note. We have evaluation forms in Word format, which I understand could be utilized on a tablet PC. Would that work?

If someone could just point me to a resource for a relative newbie looking for EMR advice, I would be very appreciative.

Thanks for reading my post!

Larry

There are a zillion EMRs out there, including some free ones. Generally, you get what you pay for.

I would look here http://www.abletfactory.com/emrtoolkit_detail.htm first, then surf on over to www.emrupdate.com

Hi Larry,

I actually work for a company called Group Mobile and they have some solutions as far as tablets for your practice. I don't know much about the software, but we have some great information on hardware and how to pick the right one. Panasonic just came out with a wireless display that is perfect for health care and pretty cost effective. It is a touch screen type of display that connects to a PC or server so that the information remains securely on the PC or server, rather than on the unit you are using. The product is also very rugged, so if you drop it it will not break. Here are some informational links. Hope this was informational.
