Good Morning. We are in the planning phase for additional enhancements to CS WinOMS. We have our dream list, now let's have yours!
Are you using WinOMS; if there is a short call in this software I would love to know where? I have even spoken to representatives and been told there isn't a way to do this currently.
Is the Idea Exchange still a "living" forum, or are we transitioning those ideas onto this forum?
Also, there are many great ideas on there that are over 6 years old which have many votes but no follow-up response from Carestream. We have no way of knowing if they are too old to be considered relevant, have they been determined impossible from a coding standpoint, or if there is another reason they are not under development (even as a low-priority item).
Some that are of keen interest to us are:
Searchable Allergies, Medical History, and Medications
This idea was actually shared twice in the Idea Exchange, first by me with 21 votes, then by another user with another 27 votes. This is a HUGE stumbling block for our clinical users on a daily basis. They are forced to scroll literally thousands of medications with only SIX items in view at any given time, as the window is not expandable.
I cannot fathom a reason that a search window isn't available, especially one that would transition as you type, prompting down in the list to the words beginning with P-E-N as soon as you began to type "Penicillin".
We do not use the conversion option for Allergies/PMH/Meds with online registrations because it too readily creates multiple listings for the same medication in WinOMS if the patient happens to misspell the med. This renders all the attached alerts we've created to Penicillin useless, as they are not applied to that patient, if they typed "PCN".
The good news is that our new EMR allows a type ahead feature, making searching extremely easy. Please sign up for one of the EMR Elite seminars here:
