Documenting patient exercises has always been somewhat of a mess. We all know the scene; PTs and PTAs following patients around with a clipboard in hand. If your clinic uses EMR, you are probably used to taking that paper flowsheet, trying to decipher it, and inputting the data into the system. We know this process can be frustrating and cumbersome, so we set out to make paper flowsheets a thing of the past.
One of the biggest improvements we made to our digital flowsheet impacts screen real estate. Our members wanted control over what was visible on the screen and what was not. A majority of the areas on the flowsheet can be collapsed, reorganized, or removed entirely. For instance, therapists who don’t need the SPO2, HR, and RR fields to appear on the Flowsheet can remove them entirely. We know this new functionality will give you more of the information you need and less of what you don't need.
The flowsheet also accommodates clinics that have multiple treatment environments in their facility with the ability to add multiple locations. For instance, if your clinic has a gym and an aquatic center, you can now separate your flowsheet exercises based on location. This is just one more piece in our quest to make a more user friendly flowsheet.
The new WebPT Flowsheet makes it even easier to work with multiple patients at once. We have reinvented tabbed browsing and added new navigation so you can tackle a large group of patients at once. We also made the new digital flowsheet more tablet friendly. On tablets, you will enjoy larger buttons and navigation on the top and bottom of the flowsheet.
