Old version preferred


When the new update came we lost an important trend review for data. For example, when a lab was selected a double tap would open the details of the lab and include a graph trend of the measured value over time. This was very valuable for many types of measurements including, vitals, specific blood pressure trends, heart rates, and important lab values. Now with the update, vitals are not available in a trend view, nor labs. Labs are only listed by dates, and not easily accessed like before. Our team rounds appreciated the ease of data access and mobility throughout the hospital on our service and power touch expedited our rounding, now since the update the data is not as timely/accurately updated, and the trending capabilities are absent. Very disappointed in the updates. Please bring back the trending graphs and detailed views of vitals and labs that were available before.
Dictation is spot on 100% and a time saver, but not used anymore by our team since graphing trend review was taken away.

No microbiology, clunky, poor UI


Desperately needs Microbiology interface. Who are you kidding? Microbiology data is >50% of inpatients. You cannot make a decision on many patient’s without knowing culture results, ID and sensitivities. So rounding with this in the hallway is limited.

I’m quite facile with technology and figured how to use this with forced patience and perseverance. It is not intuitive to place and edit orders. Good luck those who claim to be luddites, then again you may not be trying this anyway.

It’s so slow migrating from one patient to the next, and between patient lists. Last update seemed to help slow things more. Good job.

Allow to see patients who have been discharged or in a list of discharged patients. That is important if you need to search to contact someone or follow up with them. Currently d/c’ed patients disappear from all lists.

Need MAR tab to see what meds have been given and when. This helps deciding if you need to order that extra potassium or magnesium among other things.

Feel free to reach out to me if you really want more feedback.

Getting worse


This used to be a really great app, but it just keeps getting worse and worse. It seems as though you are trying to make it obsolete. Starting today it now logs out after about 10 minutes, even if I’m using the app. The display for lab results is basically useless as you can no longer look up just by the most recent labs. If I leave the app to go to another app, when I come back it goes back to the patient homepage, not where I was 30 seconds ago. When I log in for the day, it is still on the previous day. Please restore this to the functional efficient app that it previously was.
