An innovative app for iPhone and iPad that provides 24/7 access to patient records. Perfect for shared care, home visits, nursing homes and mobile working.

View appointments, search for patients, browse a medical record, add clinical notes and prescribe medications as part of a consultation. All of this is possible using your preferred device even when there’s no network connection. Here’s what we think makes Vision Anywhere great:

• Making sense of the day ahead - displaying an overview of your day with a focus on what’s next.
• Patient at a glance - displaying a summary that has all the most important information for a patient.
• At my fingertips - supporting quick ways of finding a patient and recording clinical notes.
• Shaping clinical data - making it easy to spot trends in clinical data across different sections of the patient record.
• Connecting people – Integrates with other apps on your device to collaborate with colleagues and with their patients.

Here are some of the app's features:

• View appointments and patients even when your device is offline.

Customer Reviews

If this is the future....

Joe Duxberry

We've been putting off using Vision Anywhere due to poor feedback and anecdotal murmurings from other users.
Finally got round to setting it up on 2 iPads today.

What a disappointment! 30 second pauses moving between screens, data entry slow and sluggish, buggy and crashes regularly.

A reinstall and some advice from the developers have improved things, keen to take my feedback so hopefully will see speed improvements soon - there are some under the bonnet reasons for some of the delays.

Updated review to reflect positive interaction with development. Hope to see improvements soon as as we still feel this isn't quite ready for general use at our Practice yet.

Hope to test on iPhones soon to seen if there is a performance difference.

Promising start but needs tweaking


Finally Vision has entered the 21st century with a modern look. Prescribing acutes is really good and possibly better than on V3. Unfortunately can't really use the app on a daily basis as takes far too long to load patient data, and on my older iPad 4th generation the whole app is sluggish. Main drawback is not being able to see booked appointment for anyone other than yourself, hence you would have to manually load in the days visits if they are not listed under yourself. A good start but needs more work.
