See Today's Appointments Easily!

Here at ClinicYou, we are always trying to save time for our users.

Several months ago, we implemented changes to search for a patient easily when you are within another patient's medical records. This worked very well - clinicians and support staff could call up patients based on name, address, telephone number etc. from the unified search field on the EMR page. Yet, to see the day's appointments, clinicians had to navigate to the scheduler. Now, with a single click, a clinician can see all patients on the list today - and select their medical records. 

We hope you like this new feature. There are many more in the offing, including updates to our iOS apps.

Recent Updates And New Features

We have been working hard to make your EMR software responsive, faster and more intuitive. The recently released 'Task Bar' docked to the bottom of the screen is an example of our obsession with minimalism and user experience. In the last week, we made the clinical messaging system much faster and easier to use. The To Do system, a vital tool for clinical teams to remind each other to deal with important patient related matters, has been overhauled and streamlined too. We hope these changes will make ClinicYou Web-based EMR and practice management system even more useful.

There are a lot of other new features in the offing, so please stay tuned. Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy the results of our efforts to enhance your user experience. As ever, if anything is not clear, please drop us a line and we will be right with you.

Adoption of EMRs - A Generational Thing?

The clinical community is known for its resistance to paperless workflows and suspicious attitude to technology. However, it would seem a lot of this is a generational thing and change is already underway. 

Newer graduates often express their frustration in having to work with software seemingly created before the new millennium. One even has acquired the word 'Millennium' to its name, to celebrate the fact that four digit year fields were added.

The younger generation fo doctors and nurses grew up using tools that are well designed, intuitive and pleasant to use, so it is no wonder they feel the pain when they experience the pathetic design and user-experience commonly seen in most EMR software out there. They would like software that seamlessly drive their workflows without getting in the way - like most other software they have used. They will want light, agile, hardware platforms and  not black boxes chained to desks. They want innovative products that work together and transcends boundaries. 

Disappearing are the days when clinicians resisted electronic workflows. Provided the software tools on offer are innovative and modern, new entrants to the medical profession will wholeheartedly embrace paperless workflows. Here at ClinicYou, we are hard at work creating a clinical software platform for seamless workflows, improving clinical collaboration, whilst concentrating on a pleasant user experience.  We invite all like minded clinicians to try our flagship web based EMR software.

Walk In The Park

Social networking has become part of our lives and most people take to them like duck to water. Imagine needing training to use Twitter or Facebook!

If you know how to use social networking applications, you already know how to use ClinicYou, it will just come naturally.

Often EMR systems need a lot of staff training to get over their cryptic, unintuitive interfaces, which can be very costly and time consuming. Even with training, chances are that a lot of them never have users taking advantage of all of the features. Icons are good when thoughtfully designed - but badly designed ones are challenging and frustrating just to decipher them.

ClinicYou has minimal, simplistic design. Very little or no training is needed as the layout is very well organised and easy to navigate. Very few of our support tickets are related to actually using the software, and very few people actually look at our user manual! For once, using a clinical information system is literally a walk in the park.
