If just reading the phrase “patient care reporting” gives you a headache, it’s time to change your approach. iPCR software for the iPad replaces slow, clunky methods with a fast, feature-rich software that gives EMS and fire crews the flexibility they need to generate comprehensive reports in a timely fashion. We took everything that wasn’t working in conventional patient care reporting, improved it, and added important functionalities to meet the unique needs of individual agencies.
Gathering patient information is the first step in creating a PCR. Using an EMS worksheet is a helpful way to compile initial patient symptoms and vitals, but it can feel like a burden when the exact same information must be repeated to create the official patient care report. With iPCR, you can transfer relevant information directly into the patient care report and also send the info off to the receiving team.
The dispatch screen allows you to record dispatch information for documentation and future reference, either by pulling from CAD or via manual entry. Add call times, make note of delays, and add a pickup location with additional assistance from the zip code lookup feature to create an accurate recap of the trip. After the call is completed, use the auto mileage calculator to easily calculate the distance between the pickup and drop-off locations.
The patient information screen is your hub to record patient demographics, such as name, age, weight, gender, social security number, and medical information including history, allergies, medications, and more. For repeat patients, easily recall previously saved medical and billing information. You can even edit this information to make updates instead of starting from scratch.
iPCR functions on the iPad when you’re in the field and on a desktop computer when you return to the office. Web administrators can complete a variety of tasks, including updating patient billing and medical history, and preloading patients for first responders to use on the scene.
The HPI (history of present illness) screen contains sections for patient complaints, symptoms, subjective information, and your narrative. The narrative section is a free text area in which you can easily enter content via the on-screen keyboard, bluetooth keyboard, or voice dictation. These flexible input options make it more convenient to record information in a variety of operating conditions.
On the vitals screen, you can enter new patient vitals information that saves into the treatment timeline for easy, chronological review. With our enhanced tier, you’ll have integration capabilities to seamlessly import information such as EKGs directly from monitors. Using a male, female, or child anatomical model, tap areas on the anterior and posterior view (or use the list view) to record specific symptoms, injuries, and complaints. Instantly normalize your assessment by setting all variables to WNL (within normal limits), after which you may modify as needed.
Easily record treatments given and medications administered right on the touch screen. Each action is recorded in the treatment timelines, along with patient vitals, to create a sequence of events for future reference.
The disposition screen allows you to add your disposition and dropoff info, and to authorize care, refusal of care, and transfer. Implement saved signatures or add them in the field to save time while also allowing for flexibility when necessary. Your agency has total control over closed call rules (CCRs) to ensure that every component of the patient care report is completed. Mandatory fields will be highlighted according to the selected call type to make it easier for the user to identify any missed information.
Inputting patient billing and insurance info is simple and hassle-free. If a user has accessed the desktop iPCR software to preload destinations and insurance companies, first responders in the field can import this information with one click.
The supplemental screen allows for additional functionalities that tailor your patient care report to each situation and need. You can add, edit, and remove fields, and categorize fields so they will appear in the applicable areas of the report. In the forms library, users can digitize existing agency forms to go paperless. You can also take advantage of the iPad’s built-in camera to take pictures of patient rhythm strips, insurance cards, driver’s licenses and other identification, and any other relevant items that are either time-consuming or difficult to describe with text alone.
After the patient care report has been completed, the user can review all of the information and make corrections, if necessary. iPCR automatically validates the report for state compliance for additional quality control assurance. Print the report or fax it directly to the patient’s destination and other relevant parties. If you cannot finish the report in the field, save it on the iPad or to the cloud for convenient desktop access.
Elevate your patient care reporting with software designed for the people who actually use it. From first responders and agency administration to patients and hospitals, your choice to incorporate iPCR benefits everyone involved in the care process.
