Fixes and improvements
Could be so much more
The low rating is because this app could be so much more useful than it is. It’s stable and faster to get into than remoting in through Citrix, its interface is touch-oriented, and it won’t drain your battery like Citrix… but that’s where the positives end.
You can’t time mark anything,
There’s no way to view all lab results at once; you’re stuck selecting from a drop-down box that doesn’t even utilize the entire height of the screen. On my iPad mini, it doesn’t even use half of the screen.
Reviewing vitals is limited to the last few entries, with no way to go farther back in time.
You can’t manage orders.
You can’t write any documentation.
I use Canto for quickly referencing my notes during rounds, but that’s about it. With the release of the iPad Pro it seems as if Canto could easily be a mobile clinician’s most-used app, but the above limitations and the lack of split-screen support make Canto little more than a tease of what could be.
The In basket function should allow you to access patient calls. The fact that it doesn't makes this useless to most EPIC users. Good idea, but this app is an empty promise. What little it is able to do it does seem to do well, hence the second star
Major flaw with this app is that I can not place orders. It appears that it is only for reviewing a chart (with ability to look at a schedule and work on your inbasket). The whole idea of having an app native to iOS is to take care of patients using an iPad. This is an Epic failure.
