CHICAGO, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The highly-anticipated Allscripts Wand 2.0 for Enterprise EHR is now generally available. In a busy physician practice, clinicians and physicians are moving quickly from patient to patient. Efficient throughput is essential to their operational success. Wand is the native iPad™ application that couples the latest in tablet technology with the latest in user-experience innovation for a revolutionary approach to how physicians practice medicine.
Allscripts will be demoing the latest version of Wand this week at The Allscripts Client Experience (ACE), August 21-23 at Chicago’sMcCormick Place.
This enhanced version of Wand contains the functionality that clinicians and physicians alike need to complete a patient visit with one mobile device. Whether it’s reviewing the patient chart before entering the exam room, updating the patient’s history during a consultation, refilling electronic prescriptions while rounding in the hospital or reviewing the next day’s appointments from home, Wand supports the physician’s workflow, wherever he or she is. Wand was built to help physicians collect the electronic information they need without interfering with the important physician-patient relationship.
“Wand for Enterprise offers physicians flexibility,” said Dr. Brian Keeffe, a cardiologist and Chief Medical Advisor for Electronic Health Records at Marin Medical Practice Concepts. “The ability to create notes on the go when you are seeing up to 25 patients per day is invaluable.”
Other key features of the enhanced version of Wand include:
- Complete Clinical documentation
- Place all types of orders
- Easily attach photos to a patient’s chart
- Drop visit charges
“We listened to our clients and broke new ground with the 2.0 version of Wand for Enterprise,” said Stanley Crane, Chief Innovation Officer for Allscripts. “What we have delivered is a mobile tool with a streamlined workflow and faster access to critical data – where and when the physicians need it most – in their hands at the point of care.”
Wand for Enterprise is the latest in a long line of mobility innovation from Allscripts. Wand for Professional was unveiled in April 2012. In 2010, the company released Sunrise Mobile MDII for iPad, giving hospitals providers remote access to many daily activities, expanding on Sunrise Mobile MD for iPhone™. And with Allscripts Remote, available since 2009, ambulatory EHR users can access key clinical features after hours on virtually any smartphone. Wand for Enterprise takes the next step by adding more features and a native iPad interface to put essential clinical information at the fingertips of the mobile healthcare professional.
