Web-based signout

Postby jason » 19 Sep 2007, 19:29

Does anyone know of a good online signout system. We have been using the RECS (Resident electronic charting system) from Nextmedtech and it has been nothing but problems. First of all its too slow. It goes down all the time. I just checked them out and it looks like it is an operation from someone's home. Every time I call for support, I hear a baby in the background. There must be a company that gives better service.

I was at the PAS convention in Canada and heard about a company that others use, but I can not remember the name.

The residency signout provider

Postby adamD » 01 Nov 2007, 14:17

The name of that company is http://www.webformds.com and the place where we login is http://www.mypatientyourpatient.com We have had them since before I arrived here 4 years ago and the system has never been down. We have customized it once and they made the signout exactly like the way we wanted it. Dont know what it costs, but will check with my program director.

We use WardManager (http://www.wardmanager.com) -- online, HIPAA secure signout program -- user friendly, fast, and creates good-looking PDFs of the team census, signout, and skeleton progress notes (option to type) for about $100/team -- so fits most programs' wallets. From what we've been told -- nothing to install, runs on any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and Windows or Mac. Our residents have been very happy with WardManager.

Ok, I have been doing some digging today and this is what I learned. The company that you saw in Canada could have been http://www.webformds.com ? We used the ward manager with bugs and I just spoke to UVA residents who us http://www.mypatientyourpatient.com and it is a service by http://www.webformds.com. I googled the PAS convention in Canada and confirmed that the signout provider is http://www.webformds.com http://www.pas-meeting.org/2007Toronto/ ... hibits.htm

I think we are going to switch from ward manager to http://www.webformds.com too.

Thanks robert.o -- this is a good discussion. I have heard good things about wardmanager from other residents on the fellow interview trail, so i'm a little surprised to read your comments. I'd like to get more information from you, if you don't mind, about your experiences. At what residency program are you that switched? Are there other residents at your program I could speak with regarding their experiences? Thanks again for your feedback.
