Atlanta-based McKesson says its Bright Note Technology, which populates all critical data on a patient chart, is now available in McKesson’s ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) solutions for physician practices.
This processing technology enables physicians and other providers to use their preferred charting style to capture data in a single screen note and, with one touch, synchronize searchable data across a complete chart, says the company. Physicians can choose from a variety of input methods including speech recognition, templates, keyboard entry and transcription. For those who prefer to input verbally, advanced speech recognition software with built-in dot codes enables the physician to enter and synchronize patient data. Other physicians may prefer to use templates entered into a digital tablet or personal computer, with drop-down menus and the ability to point and click. For those who choose to enter the information on a keyboard, the new technology reduces keystrokes and eliminates redundancies, the company adds.
