DocuRehab has a unique, field-driven charting process. The design of the program has the ability to generate additional screens and questions dependent on the criteria added. The system comes equipped with the majority of forms, charts and questionnaires found in offices but with the ‘my charting’ feature these may be edited to reflect the personal practice of the user. The fields are color coded to ensure the necessary information is input by patient or professional, minimizing error and increasing efficiency.
Through innovative technology DocuRehab has transformed how a patient history and exam are recorded.
Field Based: The system will print only specific answers for specific questions without adding unnecessary formatting that make it look like a paragraph (1). Instead of printing continuous text, the printout is presented in an easy-to-read format detailing the patient's visit by separating each question and answer.
Visually Dynamic: Every part of the exam is divided into modules and each module has corresponding animations. The animation is a pictograph of the content of that module. Through images, the professional can easily identify a specific orthopedic exam or distinguish an eye exam in the patient's history. This feature is unique to DocuRehab. Patent pending
Color Coded References: Every chart codes the data by separately outlining any data required by the doctor or patient in blue and any linked module in green. When selecting any field or option in green, the user knows that you are adding a module with accompanying questions to the exam.
Progression Analysis: With a single click, questions are displayed next to each other linearly in two screens with the information on either side. Two dates of treatment can be displayed on the same page, and multiple dates of treatment can be tabbed on the same screen allowing the user to discuss and demonstrate rates of progression.
Accordion Access: Just as an accordion expands and contracts, so does the DocuRehab charting system. While performing patient exams, the user has the ability to increase or reduce the length of the questionnaire dependent on the type of visit. For example, you can start with 10 questions and end up with 100 questions from the player and vice versa for routine follow up appointments.
Interactive: A specific module in an exam will suggest additional modules. If a module is selected, these animations will prompt additional questionnaires, hands-on treatments or exercises for the exam through the anchored charting system. As a result, the system uses the professionals’ responses to build the patient exam by suggesting optional animations, tests, or treatments.
Customizable: Do not be confused by others' claims to customization. DocuRehab does not consider adding a note or text box customizable -it considers building independent forms, questionnaires, protocols, hands-on treatments and exercises customizable.
Completely Populated: There is no initial need to create a “work excuse letter” or an outcome assessment form as commonly used forms are already online. If a specific form is unavailable, it is likely that another colleague/peer will post that form. Additionally, the user has the option to create their own form that is personalized to their own practice and needs.
Instructional: The user can import his or her own charting picture, animation, and video. Imagine that you have difficulty recalling an orthopedic test but are able to watch an animated test or video to refresh your memory in an instant.
Easy and User-Friendly: The player function is an exceptional tool that displays the full exam using a continuous format, just like a PowerPoint presentation. The player also enlarges test questions to make them easier to read for the older doctor/therapist.
Fast and Efficient: The system is built to work using the iPad or Android platforms following a single belief: Notes should be taken in front of the patient. Accordingly, DocuRehab has developed the applications for each system to ensure that the doctor is able to provide the utmost care for their patient.
(1) Many current systems generate text from a series of question. They then blend those answers in a single solid paragraph with punctuation that is read much like a story. The problem with this is that these stories sound and look the same, even with two paragraphs side by side. It makes reviewing one’s notes tedious and lengthy. We call these systems the “information blenders”. Sadly people have been so accustomed to it that they often ask for those. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE!
Remember that the text blending EMRs are outdated and completely impractical -- they are a hindrance to quality documentation.
