      • “Save Now” Feature

          “Save Now” will give users the option to save their work, without navigating away from content that requires their greatest attention.
      • View Other User Roster

          Users will be able to view another user’s roster with a click.  This feature is expected to further enhance visit volume and patient assignment tracking, and will help to ensure more equal census numbers among on-service users.
      • Updated Hand-Off Content

          New hand-off content will allow for the further standardization of off-service hand-offs, and will help to ensure that critical information is retaining and considering with every hand-off of care.

          Searching for any patient will result in a greater breath of search results and will yield further information about patient assignments and communication.
      • Completely New Survey Module

          A newly designed Survey Module will allow for evaluation of off-service hand-offs through an automated process.  Administrative users will be able to download results, and will identify areas for improvement among the group as a whole.  Administrators can even identify specific hand-off practices which are most appreciated and most highly rated.  Lastly, administrative-level users will be able to provide individual feedback on a periodic (quarterly or bi-annually) to individual providers on the quality of their hand-offs.
      • Shared Progress Note Option

          A new shared progress note feature will allow for non-physician providers to utilize OnServiceMD Progress Notes.  Physician’s who supervise the non-physician providers will be able to add their own comments to a templated addendum.
      • In-Line Synopsis Editing from Roster

          The efficiencies gained from in-line editing of hand-off information will be monumental.  This feature is estimated to reduce mouse clicks by over 50% when handing off a service of patients.  Combined with already implemented batch hand-offs and other batching features, streamlining workflow will be taken to the next level with with new function.
      • Threading

          Hand-off information will be threaded.  Users will be able to see user, date and time of synopsis entry, and look at historical data with a click.
      • Extensive New Logging

          All hand-offs and communication from OnServiceMD will be logged, with user, date, and time stamp.  Don’t remember who handed-off a patient to you?  No problem, just check the new logs for a complete story of hand-offs.
