We asked practice staff how their GPs use patient records during home visits and nursing home rounds. 95% said that some or all their GPs take paper printouts to refer to. Why should GPs stop printing patient records for home visits and what is the alternative?
One of the most frequent requests we receive from GPs is for intelligent repeat medication synchronisation.
Many patients have lots of repeat medication and it's common for these prescriptions to run out at different times. This means patients are called for multiple appointments for medication reviews, which:
- wastes GP time
- fills up appointment slots that could be made available to other patients
- wastes admin time calling and recalling patients
- is frustrating for patients
Vision Anywhere is our clinical app for iPad and iPhone, Android and Windows that is being used extensively where mobile access to patient records is required. We have been working hard behind the scenes adding significant new functionality to bring Vision Anywhere to the Windows desktop and the in-practice environment.
