Touch Pad Technology, or, Our Superiority Complex

Let's be honest: at IO Practiceware, we think we're pretty awesome.  Why?  

Three words: Touch Screen Interface.  

"Touch Screen" = self-explanatory.  "Interface" = our software's ability to communicate between chart displays and information tables, creating a system of truly integrated data entry, retrieval, revision and review.

But what make's IO Practiceware's Touch Screen Interface better than other companies'?  Why the self-described "superiority complex?"  

Well, apart from the fact that all our employees are ridiculously and inexplicably attractive, our software was designed as touch screen software -- which is to say, to support touch screen data entry.  Other companies that "use" touch screens usually do not offer software that is properly designed for this form of input.  Which means that it doesn't make much of a difference whether or not you use your finger, a mouse, a pencil, a herring bone - it's all just as slow (even slower!) than paper charts.

So how does IO Practiceware remain a shining beacon of truth and beauty?  

Our large data entry buttons function quite differently from a mouse pad, keyboard or stylus -- and are significantly faster.  Having to scroll through dropdown menus or type information is frequently what slows doctors down when using EMRs.  Our system, however, doesn't ask you to do this; it guides you screen to screen, with data entry a mere, single click away.

Moreover, the draw function in our charts allows you to record your visual observations electronically, at which point these observations are interpreted and translated for you, which removes the need for redundant data entry and greatly reduces time spent in the exam room.

To summarize:
  • We're awesome.
  • Why?
  • Because we look like the cast of Baywatch.
  • Also because of our Touch Screen Interface.
  • Unlike other companies, our software was designed for touch screen data entry.
  • Our big button design means super lightning speed in the exam room.
  • In Irkukstian Dialect, IO Practiceware means "World Peace."
