ChartWare offers a range of standard and optional product modules to extend the functionality of ChartWare® Professional.
ChartWare® Patient Charting Tool — A set of tools for documenting a clinical encounter at the point of care, capturing the data required to create a chart note while simultaneosly creating prescriptions, clinical orders, referral requests, patient aftercare instructions, disability notes and a fee slip.
ChartWare® Knowledge Base — A comprehensive, structured controlled set of clinical vocabularies including an integrated FDA drug list of more than 20,000 pharmaceuticals, as well as integrated CPT and ICD9 for ChartWare® with online updates available from ChartWare. All completely customizable utilizing the ChartWare Vocabulary Tool described below.
ChartWare® Continuity of Care Record (Patient Viewer) — Software that allows doctors to give every patient a portable medical record that can be read on virtually any computer anywhere in the world. ChartWare was ahead of the curve, releasing this XML (universal computer language) nonproprietary record in 1998, soon after the Internet XML standard was announced. Heralded as giving patients the opportunity for better treatment, this module puts patients in control of giving their medical history to anyone they choose.
ChartWare® Vocabulary Tool — The "power tool" that puts the ChartWare user completely in control, allowing personalization of the extensive knowledge base content included in ChartWare, and doing away with the restriction of traditional templates driven by complaint, diagnosis, problem or procedure. The powerful "Embedded Query" function for custom real-time database queries is also available for customization by advanced users.
CPT & ICD9 for ChartWare® — A lexicon integrated into ChartWare and provided through a license agreement with the American Medical Association, which owns the CPT lexicon.
ChartWare® Configuration Tool — A tool used primarily for setup and maintenance of the user's preferences. It offers the ability to customize service locations, visit types, file locations, default print and report options, to create a custom palate of document outlines and to organize clinical encounters into episodes of care.
ChartWare® User Manager — The administrative control area for security. After a partial configuration is established during the install and licensing process, the end user defines detailed roles and assigns security privileges. Privilege authorization determines who may add information to a patient's chart, write prescriptions, view charts, enroll new patients into the system or insert documents into the record. Each user is given a log-on identification, password, unique PIN and specific privileges.
ChartWare® Miscellaneous Utilities & Reports — Featuring elegant "Tamper Resistance," "Recall-It" for drug recalls and other "locator" functions, "Reminder Re-Assigner" for staff changes, "Sizer" for tracking growth of patient and encounter data plus a wide variety of encounter-based, patient based and overall database reports.
ChartWare® Drug Interaction Link to The Medical Letter® Adverse Drug Interaction Program for Windows — Creates a seamless link between the current medications list in ChartWare and the drug interaction database provided on a subscription basis by The Medical Letter®. This link permits evaluation of interactions between medications and certain foods such as grapefruit that may be clinically important depending upon the clinician's judgment at the point-of-care.
ChartWare® Imaging Squared Module — Provides the capability of "acquiring" or linking virtually any TWAIN compliant image (scan or photo) or PDF file to ChartWare for viewing, annotating or reprinting.
ChartWare® Launch Module — Provides the capability of launching virtually any Microsoft® Windows software program from within ChartWare.
ChartWare® 32 eXtensible Media Manager (XMM) Module — This powerful integrated utility provides the capability of linking virtually any file or type of file that is accessible on the user's system or network to ChartWare, including multimedia files such as full motion video or active audio files that are increasingly available. In addition to linking and viewing such files (as was done previously with the ChartWare® 32 Generic File Link Module), XMM allows the linked files to be edited or used as "models." Examples include anatomical templates for drawing and or spreadsheet files for trending or online calculations. Other examples include linking patient education handouts, linking output from diagnostic EKG or Ultrasound equipment, and utilizing custom enhancements to link electronic input from fax servers. The expanded capabilities of XMM extend the nature and scope of what can be efficiently documented at the point of care.
ChartWare® 32 Dictation-Transcription Module — Provides "placeholders" in point-of-care chart notes for insertion of narrative text at the convenience and direction of the responsible clinician. This tool can dramatically enhance workflow and productivity in situations where documentation cannot be finalized at the point-of-care for a variety of reasons. A comprehensive document queue is maintained to keep track of incomplete documents and integrated Microsoft® Word functionality is now available for those clients who use that product.
ChartWare® 32 FaxNotes Module — Provides the capability to fax documents or reports generated by ChartWare, such as handouts, prescriptions, lab orders, x-ray orders, referrals, and letters to other clinicians or third parties such as insurance carriers or attorneys.
ChartWare® 32 Document Destination Module — This module is being completely rewritten to provide full routing of ChartWare document output to the desired and appropriate destinations automatically via email as well as other more traditional conduits such as printers and fax machines.
ChartWare® 32 DocPrint Module — Provides the capability to generate specific types of merge documents such as patient handouts with third party or practice specific content that are selected for individual patients based upon the individual patient's parameters. Examples in actual use include printing patient handouts in the patient's preferred language by a single click in the worksheet. One or many outputs can be readily generated that are patient and item specific.
