About the ZipChart EMR

Electronic Medical/Health Records software is changing the face of medicine. Every year more physicians and their staff convert to digital records, but the conversion and change in office workflow is not without risk. From the cost of an EMR system, to the time involved to get up to speed, converting your office to a paperless digital office is a big decision.

5 Design Criteria for ZipChart

  • 100% Web Server Based - No client software is needed. Because the ZipChart software is web based, if you are able to read this you already have everything you need to access all your patient's charts securely from anywhere in the world. This web based technology also allows ZipChart to be deployed across multiple locations, without the need to implement expensive and complicated networking software.

  • Optimized for Tablet PC
    ZipChart works on desktops and lap tops, but it is optimized for mobility with Tablet PC, Slates and of course the iPad. With this mobility design, there is no need to have work stations in every exam room. The vertically oriented screen is very much like a paper chart. ZipChart doesn't require a great deal of typing skills, in fact most all functions are accomplished with the click of the Tablet PC's stylus or the touch of a finger on an iPad.

  • Faster Than a Paper Chart
    ZipChart had to be faster than paper, or what was the point? Medical offices generate income by seeing patients, not from tracking down, retrieving, filing, and updating patient charts. With ZipChart, you can document a patient's encounter quickly and efficiently. Chart notes can be sent as fully encrypted email or faxed to a referring physician , nurse case manager, or insurance company with a simple touch of your finger. These documents can also be made available to your patient through the patient's secure portal.

    100% Paperless
    You might wonder how this is possible. In a medical office there are always paper reports, referrals, transcriptions, and notes to add to the chart. That was true before ZipChart. Now all documents are either scanned into the chart via the included high speed document & card scanners, or captured automatically as they are faxed into your office. These documents are converted to PDFs and then easily attached to your patients' chart.

  • Minimize Practice Impact
    As we have already stated, revenue is generated when physicians are seeing patients, so the goal was to keep the physician working with patients and not spending hours training on complicated software. ZipChart is simple to use, and most functions are completed with a click of the mouse or a tap of the Tablet PC's stylus.
