I am exploring the same idea as you, and let me know if you hear anything.

Many docs use TPCs in their psych practices just using the native application Journal.

I use a specific EMR with both an Acer C110 and a Scribbler 2010. I often hand the patient one of my TPCs to fill out a check box [b]query on their condition[/b], which is incorporated into my EMR.

Whatever you do with a pen and paper in your existing practice, you can do on a TabletPC.

Last week I decided to automate my structured progress note. I was pretty happy with the form filler available in Acrobat and my revised note until I discovered a product named ICANotes. ICANotes is, among other things, a psychiatric report writer driven by simple button pushing. Its format is ideally suited to a tablet environment. You see the report as it is being written and can immediately modify it to suit your needs. The program contains a very thorough reporting of an initital interview, progress notes and comprehensive treatment planning. Most importantly, the report generation features are customizible by easily written user additions that are stored as additional buttons on the data entry screens.

I understand that billing interfaces are also available, but I have not tried them. So far, the notes and reports that I have produced benefit from a careful reading and minor editing. The drudgery of report writing and documentation of psychotherapy (and perscription management for psychiatrists) has largely evaporated. Both web and standalone versions are available.

Service from the vendor is the best I've ever seen. Even before my copy arrived by next day Federal Express, I had a phone call from the vendor explaining that they had discovered a bug (in the perscription and med management sections that I don't use)along with an apology and a promise to send a revised disk as soon as they could get them printed. When I inquired by phone I got a hands on walkthrough of the product, an offer for free after the purchase training (mandatory for their maney back guarantee).

I have no affiliation nor financial benefit from this product. I am just an enthusiastic new user of a product that looks to simplify my practice. ratings: Product 4/5, Service 5+/5.

I represent a firm called Goal Centric. We are conducting a study on behalf of the Psychological Corporation (Harcourt Assessment) on evaluating the use of the Tablet PC for producing electronic versions of their protocol forms such as the WISC. If you would like to participate by being interviwed, please email We are also seeking on-site visits in California to demonstrate the Tablet PC and the use of protocol forms.

I am also considering the use of a electronic tablet. My scheduling and billing is already on computer (Therapist Helper) and I bought a new laptop earlier this year. So, what I am looking for is a tablet that will link to my notebook -- optimally with a wireless connection --- and a software program that is good at translating my handwriting into text. In my case this could be challenging as I am often told (by loved ones) that my handwriting is difficult to read.

Heres the issue I noticed with turning handwritten notes to text. You write ALOT bigger than type, so when you convert your handwriting to text it turns into something like:

Blah this is just random words
oh look it turns the writing so small
that it doesnt hit an edge of the paper
or document anymore
because yea.

instead of handwritten text being "neat" and formatted properly. Maybe theres a way around this, and I dont evenhave a tablet yet so cant say for sure. But while playing at BestBuy that was an obvious issue.

However come December 25th I will be a proud owner of a new M200 with 1.8Ghz, bluetooth, intel b/g wireless, and sadly only 512mb of ram but I will steal ram from my current desktop to up that to 1 gig prolly.
