ChartLogic's electronic medical record (EMR) system has a simple, clean user interface that makes navigation easy and helps new users learn the system without exhaustive searching. The system also includes a lot of helpful features to support both clinical and administrative decision-making, which can reduce claims rejections and improve patient care.

ChartLogic excels in its ability to provide a large amount of necessary information on one screen, drastically reducing the number of clicks needed to successfully navigate the software. This is especially useful during a patient encounter, when providers need to be focused on their patients and not computer screens.

Ease of Use

One of the strongest aspects of ChartLogic is its intuitive user interface and easy navigation. Many EMRs have busy interfaces that make it hard to find what you're looking for, and then require many clicks to properly navigate to the right area. That's a major complaint about the electronic medical records industry among healthcare providers, and ChartLogic responds to it well with a central dashboard that contains the most important information.

On the left-hand side of the dashboard is a physician's to-do list, made up of dropdown menus that display information specific to the provider. The next column highlights the selected individual patient's demographic profile. Next, the dashboard has an active care screen that includes tabs for things like encounters, messages, documents and prescription orders. Finally, on the right-hand side of the screen, there is a calendar of appointments for the day. This dashboard alone is a useful, centralized tool that consolidates a great deal of information and eliminates the need to hunt and peck for what you need.

Patient charting and notes are largely customizable, much like a Microsoft Word document. Blue hyperlinks exist in the note on the system only (they will not export with the finished note) and allow users to instantly navigate to the relevant portion of the software if they need to follow up on any information in the patient's note.

ChartLogic is also configured for voice navigation and voice-to-text dictation for a hands-free experience. This could represent an additional learning curve, but for providers who prefer this method, it could also help them stay more engaged with a patient during an encounter.

Features

ChartLogic has a number of innovative features that make it effective and easy to use during patient encounters. The EMR also automates some key functions. Here's a look at some of the features we found useful.

One-Screen Charting

One-screen charting, as described above, allows providers to record notes about a patient encounter on one page, without the need to navigate away for any reason. If a provider chooses to use voice navigation and voice-to-text dictation, they can record all notes about the encounter without a single click.

Template Builder

ChartLogic's template builder allows providers to customize templates to suit their workflow and specialty. Providers can also upload or build their own templates if they prefer to start from scratch.

ePrescribe

ePrescribe allows providers to order or refill patient medications from the EMR, so long as their system can communicate with the pharmacy's.

Referral Reply

An automated reply can be set up to respond to incoming referrals or refer patients to another healthcare provider. Referral reply can take a step off a provider's plate so they can focus on patient care instead of writing emails.

Patient Portal

Patient engagement is becoming more important in the healthcare industry, and ChartLogic's patient portal allows patients to take an active role in their medical care. On their mobile device or browser, a patient can contact their healthcare provider, obtain their medical records, request a prescription refill or request an appointment.

Implementation and Training

Implementation for ChartLogic should only take a few weeks. Insurance billing and e-prescribing are likely to take the longest time to set up. The company will also deploy a team of implementation consultants for onsite training, or your practice can set up virtual training with a consultant on live chat. Web-based or self-guided training is recommended only for the most tech savvy and experienced medical practices.

ChartLogic's implementation support has mixed user reviews. However, this is to be expected, as EMR implementation tends to vary greatly from practice to practice depending on culture, needs and size. Aside from a few negative reviews, most users said implementation was a success and the onsite training team helped them get off to a good start.
