Company announces version 1.5 of iPad EMR app that features the ability to build macros and customizable SOAP notes.

NEW YORK, New York—DrChrono.com, a publisher of point-of-care and practice-management software, has announced version 1.5 of iPad EMR app that features the ability to build macros and customizable SOAP notes.

DrChrono.com and its iPad EMR app have been featured in local, national, and international news outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, Newsday, The Health Care Blog, NPR, and Asahi TV.

"Customizable SOAP notes has been one of the biggest obstacles for many health-care professionals when it comes to switching to electronic medical record software," commented Michael Nusimow, CEO and cofounder of DrChrono.com. "The macro feature saves doctors time by reducing the amount of typing needed during an exam."

DrChrono.com unveiled a native EMR app for the Apple iPad April 24, 2010, at the Health 2.0 Conference in Jacksonville, Fla.

"Doctors can use our online portal to create macro buttons that appear in SOAP note screen," said DrChrono.com COO and cofounder Daniel Kivatinos.

A macro simulates keystrokes, allowing doctors to enter predetermined data and text with the press of a button.

"They can create an unlimited number of buttons, and can add, edit or delete their macros at any time," Kivatinos said.

The feature, according to Kivatinos, lays the foundation to address a larger problem in the industry.

"Many doctors tell us that they struggle to figure out how to bill certain kinds of visits and treatments," he said. "As such, we intend to build a social network-style interactive community into DrChrono.com's online portal that will allow physicians to share knowledge about how to document cases and treatments, as well as how to more effectively bill insurance companies, or anything else that they may want to discuss with colleagues around the U.S."
