Microsoft Word templates can easily be imported into TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition and used for charting within the program with a few minor modifications. TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition also includes hundreds of podiatry-specific templates ranging from complete office visits, like fungal nail care, to individual exams, like dorsalis pedis pulses. This method is best used for common, routine visits like fungal nail care and post-op visits where the same questions are asked over and over. TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition’s fill-in-the-blank method is much like using a word processor and web browser together. While creating the note, you may type anywhere at any time. In addition, questions (fill-in-the-blanks) may appear throughout your note waiting to be answered. These questions appear as hyperlinks much like they would in Internet Explorer. However, when you click one of these hyperlinks, instead of going to a web page, the question appears to the right as a list of possible answers. You may answer the questions using a pen, keyboard, mouse, or your voice (i.e. ONE, OK). Quickly answer all questions in a single template!
Online Template Library
TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition includes access to its online template library with access to templates that are created by other TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition customers. Users are welcome to download these templates, free of charge, and modify them for database use.
Many doctors prefer to circle codes on a paper charge slip (superbill) between patients and then finish their notes later using these superbills as a reference. TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition allows doctors to recreate superbills electronically. Once finished, send the chosen codes to the billing program for processing. A skeleton note is then generated using templates associated with each code. This method reduces steps over the paper alternative; it allows doctors to quickly move from room to room without being forced to finish each note one at a time.
TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition allows you to create a new note from an old note. This simple method carries forward the treatment and diagnoses codes, diagnoses pointers and modifiers and enables you to then make changes and save the note as a new record.
Unlike standard dictation/transcription, the Embedded Transcription feature allows users to dictate only the parts of a note that are difficult to complete using a computer. For example, a doctor might use a pen tablet to check off the exam findings, diagnoses, and treatments and then dictate the remaining narrative text for the subjective section of the note. As a result, you pay to transcribe a paragraph rather than an entire note. Throughout the entire process, we track who did what and when. As a result, you can click on any dictation to see who created it, when it was sent, when it was transcribed, and when you received it. Unlike automated voice recognition software, a recorded voice file is sent to a real human being for transcription.
The Assembler presents a patient's medical history in an easy-to-read hierarchical tree. Objective, Assessment, and Plan findings are added to each complaint branch like leaves. Creating notes becomes a simple process; just snapshot the current tree view as a SOAP note or History and Physical. Also, by using a tree view to generate a note rather than a template or previous note, your medical records will no longer appear "canned". This allows focus to move to managing the patient rather than their records. In addition, various items within the patient history may be red flagged as unresolved so that next visit you can quickly pick up where you left off with respect to pending items.
Prescriptions can be created within TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition as a standalone task or as part of a note. Once created, a prescription may be printed or sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.
Referral letters can be created within TRAKnet PM - DPM Edition as a standalone task or as part of a note. Once created, a referral letter may be printed, faxed or e-mailed. If printed, an envelope is printed as well as the associated note. If faxed, the associated note is included. And, if e-mailed, the note is sent as an attachment.
