The clinician, nurse or therapist will spend more time in the patients home documenting the hundreds of questions that are not all necessary. So a regular visit will be over an hour and if you have cars to perform such as wound vac, pic care, labs, IV, pill box, wound. Care, expect the additional time over the 45 min to hour documenting. A loss of money and you will work much more with no compensation. Additionally, my patients fall asleep during assessment and documentation, and I had to wake them 2 or 3 times during.
It allows minimal error
You will work double but paid the same, unnecessary questions, very lengthy.

This Android based system forces users into the most check-box driven system in the Universe. The pro is that the system makes you jump through the hoops. The con is that the system makes you jump through hoops.
The system forces you to write your notes every day. Once you get used to it, its nice to stay in the rhythm of documenting when you are with your patients or immediately after. You can't really get behind if you are doing it right. This system keeps clinicians very honest about the actual timing of patient visits. This is another system that CTO's and CFO's geek out about.
The goals and interventions are rigid and difficult to incorporate into the actual functional activities. If you are in the middle of a visit and need to change the visit type, you have to depend on the office to schedule things for you. When that happens, you often have to document after the fact and the system makes it very difficult to record the time of the actual treatment.
You'll have to buy the system, buy a bunch of Android devices, buy time for staff to train, buy time for office staff to schedule patients and work the system on the back end. Once staff are used to this system they generally like it. But why pay for the effort to get there?
