Jeffrey A. Cleveland, MD, uses PowerChart Touch on his iPad at Charlotte Pediatric Clinic-Matthews.
After piloting in the ambulatory setting, PowerChart Touch Ambulatory is now available for all Carolinas HealthCare System providers. The chart review tool supports iPads and iPhones for fast and easy workflows for physicians.
While the tool was designed for the ambulatory setting, any provider may still find it useful though it is not a total replacement tool for PowerChart desktop.
“I have found PowerChart Touch useful for quick review of the patient’s records, especially when I am away from the office,” said Jeffrey A. Cleveland, MD, CHS Medical Group Canopy Medical Director and a pediatrician. “I also find it very helpful to use as a tool for Dragon Dictation to enter narrative aspects of the patient’s visit into my note. I typically do this in the room while with the patient as I summarize their presenting symptoms. I have gotten uniformly positive feedback from my patients about this.”
