Patient cards are designed as an easy method to hold patient demographics, notes and details of tasks related to a particular patient. They can be shared in message streams for opinions or referrals and are held under Patients or Lists which can be selected on the bottom bar.
How can patient cards be used?
Patient cards can be used in whatever way you and your team find useful. An example use case for ward-based health professionals is to keep a digitised patient list which can improve handover and shared care scenarios. We have also found the patient cards to be of particular benefit in multidisciplinary teams where all aspects of each patient’s care can be updated in real-time.
If you are an iOS user, follow these steps to create a patient card:
- To access our Patient Cards feature, tap on the List icon on the bottom bar
- Click the green + button in the top right corner to create a new patient card
If you are an Android user, follow these steps to create a patient card:
- To access our Patient Cards feature, tap on the Patients icon on the bottom bar
- Click the text where it says "Tap here to add a new patient" to create a new patient card.
Once you have created a new patient card, you'll be able to begin creating a dynamic task list. If you would like to add more information to the patient card, including the patient's name, medication notes, or images click 'More Info' if you are on iOS, or the patient card icon if you are on Android, in the top right corner. This will present the Patient details page.
You can also attach images from your gallery to the patient card. Click here for more information on how to do this.
How do I share a patient card with a colleague?
You can send a patient card within a direct or team message by clicking on the Patient Card icon, on iOS, or the '+' sign in the bottom left corner and then 'Add a patient profile', on Android, and selecting the patient card you would like to share. The recipient will then be able to view the patient card.
If you would like to collaborate on a patient card with a colleague or team, you can assign the card to them within the Patient Info page on the Patient Card itself. All users who have been assigned a patient card will have access to edit all details of the patient card including completing tasks, adding notes, and attaching photos.
