The emsCharts SyncPen is a high-tech meets low-tech solution that combines the ease and convenience of paper with the benefit of uploading documented data to emsCharts. Since the original form can be left at the receiving facility, there is no wasted paper. or time! All of the written information is transformed into data points in the patient record, imported into corresponding fields in emsCharts.com, and made available for further analysis and reporting. No redundant data entry is required.
The emsCharts SyncPen can be used as a substitute for fax machines and scanners. High quality, exact digital copies are produced and saved on the pen. The result is an inked copy to leave at the receiving facility, synched electronic data in emscharts.com, and a PDF attachment of the original form.
The SyncPen is so simple, hardly any training is required to use it. Introducing SyncPen to your crews presents no change to their existing workflow. Just write, and sync!emsCharts SyncPen Features The Paper:
Almost invisible to the naked eye, the microdot pattern on your printed paper forms consists of numerous small dots that can be intelligently read by the emsCharts SyncPen. The unique dot pattern indicates the exact positions of the digital pen on the page, and distinguishes each page so that it can be sorted independently from another.The Pen:
From ink to digital data: quick and easy! A digital pen looks and feels like a normal ballpoint pen. It differs, however, in that it contains an integrated digital camera, an advanced image microprocessor, and a mobile communications device for wireless connection.
What happens when you're writing? While writing, digital snapshots are automatically taken. Every snapshot - 75 frames per second - contains enough data to determine the exact position of the pen and what it writes or draws, including the time each pen stroke was made and on which form it was written. The data is stored in the pen's memory as a series of coordinates. The emsCharts SyncPen can store up to 50 full A4/Letter size pages of handwritten data, which is then seamlessly imported into emsCharts.Existing & Custom Forms Existing Forms:
emsCharts SyncPen has a number of existing forms that are currently in use. These range from assessment forms, critical care assessments, consent forms, and refusals. New SyncPen customers can choose to use a current form, which allows them to begin documenting with the SyncPen with minimal setup. There are no extra fees to use an extisting form design. The service logo and phone number are added to the customer's form at no extra charge.
Multiple forms can be linked together in emsCharts using a common dispatch number.Custom Forms:
For a fee, emsCharts and Microtech Systems can develop custom SyncPen forms. Creating custom forms gives the EMS agency an opportunity to replicate their exact forms and minimize change to their providers.
Creating custom forms can be tricky because everyone needs to agree on the content for the form. Agency leadership must boil down the vital information that needs to appear on the form for continuity of care, operations, and billing. This can be a difficult process, which often results in a delayed implementation.
As a recommendation, a good starting place is to use one of our existing forms and to modify the fields on that form. Due to formatting constraints, this is a delicate process. New field(s) must fit exactly in the space left behind by removed fields.System Requirements
