Yes. Logician becomes the chart. There will still be the paper chart, but those were used mainly for previous information prior to Logician. Each pt has a chart in Logician. Once their names are in the system, pt information has to be Preloaded, (Entered by the nurses) allergies, dxes, meds, immunizations, Drs name. When pt comes for a visit, everything is entered into Logician instead of writing on the nurses notes in a paper chart. Whats nice also is that once the doc is finished w/ the visit, and hs put his visit info in the computer, the new rxes and refills that is done at the time of visit will be in there. He/she no longer has to dictate. What else is nice about it is that every user in the system has flags, like e-mail so that phone messages from pts can be flagged to the nurse, cuts down on nurse pages when pts call. Unless something is important and needs immediate attention. Of course there will always be those stupid pt questions. The flags also have a status icon, URGENT,IMPORTANT, and then everything else. So the nurse knows which ones to do first, but they are looked at thorugh out the day. The flags can either be forwarded to the doc if needed. We found that is ws quicker, depending on the docs preference, to print the flags out and go over them in person, that way the answer could be written on the message The flags can also be converted to a chart document with the reply to the message. Another nice thing about Logician, is that the docs can have it in put on their home pc. Great for on call when they're not familiar w/ a pt.
BUT, when Logician is down you have nothing.
It will also work wonders for your typing skills. I can actually type without looking at the keys now. Couldn't do tht before.
