A digital alternative to retain the traditional charm of pen and paper.
Electronic medical records have multiple benefits for health organisations and patients. There can be obvious challenges including cost, the implementation process, and some doctors can feel that computer use negatively impacts the consultation. Interestingly, pen and paper are still used in health consultations in 135 countries.
A streamlined documentation process could be used for all healthcare professionals in numerous health settings where a pen and paper approach is still desired or preferable. It can take IT departments no longer than 15 minutes to implement as integration is simple. Aside from streamlining the recording process, the data can be easily used for research purposes and can be used for improving the patient journey.
Doxper uses a digital pen which doctors can use to document patient notes on specialised encoded paper. The pen instantly transmits the recorded data via Bluetooth into cloud storage which is easily accessible to the doctor and can be linked to an electronic medical record. The system uses artificial intelligence to ensure accurate recognition of handwriting. The encoded paper can be customised for different purposes including prescriptions.
