Pros and cons of Epic Haiku app for iPhone and iPad
Epic Haiku app good for
There have been updates to the functionality, such as e-prescribing medications, but it is dependant on the version of Epic your organization is using. You need to be up on the 2010 version (currently the newest version) to have access to e-prescribing. The 2010 version also offers organizations a bit more flexability as far as what data displays in reports and some other minor enhancments.
If youre itching to e-rx, go bug your IT dept and tell them to upgrade!! ;)
Hope that helps
Pared down interface gives you access to schedule but not much access to chart data. Good to see what you have on a certain day and maybe open a chart to contact a patient, but not much else in terms of charting, at least on my hospotals version.
The inbox is where this app excels. It is by far the easiest way to reply to messages from your mobile device.
Wish you could access other user schedules, but I dont know if this is limited by haiku or by my hospital so Ill still rate 5 stars because it does what it claims to do and does it well.
Would like ability to print/send documents and reports from the app. I still use paper in my office, and it would be helpful to be able to print MRI reports, labs, and consult notes directly from Haiku.
It is really hard to find vital signs within the app. Putting in the summary would be best.
I use this as an ER physician and being able to put a photo into the chart for follow up is really valuable so you can track progress. Very easy to use from that perspective.
The user name no longer saves since updating to the newest version of Haiku, please get this fixed.
Some bad moments
As of July 2016, the most current version is getting better but its still rough around the edges.
Touch ID now works more reliably.
The but in which text entry fields would mysteriously have no keyboard — thats been fixed.
But its still death by a thousand small cuts. Theres simultaneously too much and far too little in this app.
The user interface is woefully cluttered.
I cant tap and copy the phone numbers of my patients. Please know that we always dial *67 when calling patients from our personal phones. Either include this by default or let us copy the phone number. Currently I have to memorize the number or switch back and forth between apps to dial it. Thats just silly.
Why cant I view upcoming appointments for my patients?
How about being able to view PDFs from the Chart Review — like scanned in outside lab results and data usually in the Media tab of Epic?
You still cant remove the space occupying Status Board (were not all surgeons, you know). Id much rather have a search tab in its place.
Haiku reflects the sad, bloated state of the US electronic health record. And its because we let hospital administrators choose the priorities instead of letting doctors be doctors.
Doesnt make haikus
Nothing epic about this
Zero stars if I could
Now i can only see todays schedule. No longer able to look at future dates. Lame!
Self-explanatory. Ever since the most recent update, I cant login. Fix it.
This app is really not useable for patient care in the hospital. There is no way to filter or sort data and most importantly I can not find any way to trend vitals. It would be great to be able to use this at the bedside but it is not very functional at this time.
I agree with Reece. App crashes immediately after login since I downloaded upgrade. Removing app fully and reinstalling did not fix this.
and other. So, download free Epic Haiku .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
