With over 25 years experience in private sector, I know how patients don't like filling out patient information forms. These forms are to be filled out each year and is mandatory by the insurance companies. We as practitioners are responsible for those completed forms and it helps us understand the patients issues relating to their examination.
I have designed a virtual assistant that will assist patients in filling out these forms using voice recognition, and touch input. It's new, and it's really detailed. The program is set up for customization of Doctors name and addresses and also the doctor can select and remove certain questions that are asked of the patient. The program also allows the doctor to enter a customized price for additional testing such as OCT and Optomap scanning. Our program can be utilized in English and Spanish and we also have a hearing impaired instructional video that can be show to the patient prior to entering data into the iPad.
This application can be run on an Apple IPad or IPad Mini and can also hook up wirelessly to a Bluetooth headset for more privacy if necessary. This application will also allow you to take the patients photo to be part of the medical record. This is very useful in remembering patient faces and also useful for those duplicate name patients.
There is a simulated SIRI voice that guides the patient thru the program.
