Milestones

Hello, stranger! Been a while!

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about a distinct feature of Ankhos called sandboxing. The feedback from our users has been overwhelmingly positive. Many of our users came from outside clinics or hospitals where drug entry was a daily(or weekly) task and each agent had to be ordered at once.   The ability to easily modify a published regimen (or order labs, blood, etc.) is a boon to provider productivity.

The past few weeks have been very busy.  We have reached some serious milestones in our project:

1. Nurses are completely paperless. All infusion time charting and Nursing notes are done in Ankhos.

2. All labs are available in the EMR, imported directly from the clinic lab machines (as well as a Labcorp interface).

3. All Providers are creating their orders in Ankhos.

a. The new Doc is well-trained as Ankhos has actually helped orient him to the practice’s idiosyncrasies.

4. 10 new Toshiba Sattelite (17″/4 g/300 g) were purchased and placed in exam rooms. I will write another post regarding the decisions and setup of our client hardware.  The biggest draw is the great quality of the wide screen. Ankhos is a web app so we don’t need a lot of processing power.

5. My sister was happily married to her long-time boyfriend in a fabulous wedding in downtown Charlotte.

Hopefully I will get back to blogging our development more in the future as things move more towards maintenance mode (HA!)
