iPatientCare is the first EHR among a few similar products that provides an easy capturing of patient’s travel history as part of the practice’s routine workflow. iPatientCare provides Travel History section as part of the past medical history and recommends all iPatientCare EHR users to enter appropriate information in this section. It also trains its users to read through and understand information already documented in this section. No additional effort and time are spent by its users because the way iPatientCare’s practice-friendly workflow and documentation templates are typically designed. Additionally, iPatientCare Patient Portal is also designed to alert patients to provide their travel history. iPatientCare ensures that practices train their patients to fill-up such important information and utilize iRemind, iPatientCare’s innovative messenger toolset, for reminding patients to provide this information.
