Improving, but still needs work
Update. Version 5.4 was supposed to fix Siri dictation in the keyboard, but the app still crashes like crazy. I was so hopeful that this would get the app to a usable stay, but is now pretty unusable.
Newest version of the app looks pretty, but it is getting more unusable. In iOS 11 Siri dictation causes the app to crash all the time. Epic claims that we should not be using Siri dictation because it is not hippa compliant however even sending messages to staff, when you don’t dictate in any patient indentifying information the app freezes and makes the app very difficult to use. Entire benefit of the phone and the app is to get work done with those little typing as possible. I should be able to forward a message that says “call patient and inform results normal “ or “please call the office for an appointment “ from the app using Siri without it crashing
Also sending patient messages always autoadances to the next before you can mark the Messages as done which is really annoying. You have to double your work by reviewing all your messages a second time in order to clear finish messages from your inbox.
This makes the app so awkward to use.
Bring Haiku up to Epic Standards
Haiku could be a primary way to draft notes on rounds and clinic but it functions more as an afterthought as opposed to a primary resource. It is the best potential pathway to add dictated content to Epic. Almost all notes in Epic desktop are templated and pull data into the note. That Haiku does not allow creating templated notes is unacceptable. Look at other EMR vendors apps. Creating a dictated final form note is easy in at least one major vendors app and has lead to rapid adoption by more than half of the providers at one of our hospitals. Almost nobody uses Haiku to create notes in our Epic based hospitals. Make Haiku shine like Epic desktop and you will vastly amplify the utility and desirability of Epic in general.
Seriously. This is a joke.
In our day of age most of us have a smart phone that we use for just about everything possible. Furthermore most clinicians are constantly on the move and work on the move. You would think that getting Epic on the phone right would be a top priority. But this is not the case. Since this garbage app was released very few things have changed and almost no new features were added. The iPad version of epic is decent but again my phone is always on my pocket and not the tablet. Please focus on the development of this app bc using epic on the phone is very important for the modern clinician.
