Work at SourceForge, help us to make it a better place! We have an immediate need for a Support Technician in our San Francisco or Denver office.
My office is using OpenEMR, and we still dictate most of our notes. To do that, we open the "Speech Dictation" window, and use Dragon to input the text.
The problem is that one or two notes a day don't get recorded. When you open the note the next day, the dictation just isn't there. That may be due to forgetting to click "Save" when the note is done, but some of them disappear even when "Save" has been clicked.
Is there any way that dictated notes can be saved on-the-fly to a "Drafts" folder, as they are being entered, so they can be recovered if need be? Has anyone else noticed this problem?
I am not sure how best to deal with the situation where notes disappear even when "Save" has been hit.
I am wondering if it is possible to add autosave via php js ajax to OpenEMR Clinical Forms as this is a very common problem
Also Time outs could be a issue? Or maybe storing data in browser cookies is a Solution?
Like Google docs as I type it saves the doc in frequent intervals or when I pause from typing.
Once after running an update I had that happen with the chief complaint dictation box. I looked and found all the notes in the database, but they just didn't show up in the visits. I uninstalled the form, put a new copy of it in the forms file and then reinstalled it, and voila, all the notes were back in place.
