More Admin Help

Medical directives can help non-physicians to review and document patient information. Designated clinicians to review discharge reports and lab reports, to free up the physicians to spend more time with patients will go a long way to a better healthcare system.

Efficient Systems

EMR systems that are designed to match the workflow of the individual physician.

Software designers can make miracles happen if given the opportunity.

Perhaps an APP based design could change the face of healthcare.
