Hi Hi 🙂

We’ve got a lot of updates for you guys this month!

On the Web App side, we’ve refined the notes table view with several new features:

  • Note Title and Preview
    Quickly view the title and a snippet of each note.
  • Template Display
    See what templates are available for each note directly in the table.
  • Simplified View
    The “recorded by” column has been removed for users who can only access their own notes, making the interface cleaner and more focused.

We’ve also got plenty of updates for our iOS users:

  • Audio Bug Fix
    Audio will now remain properly contained within the app thanks to our latest bug fix.
  • Enhanced Note Submission
    Improved handling of notes quickly submitted in succession.
  • Minor Text Display Issues Resolved
    We’ve cleaned up text display issues to enhance readability.
  • New Cancel Button
    Added a cancel button in the segment playback view for better navigation control.
  • Note Attention Header
    A new header in the notes detail screen now alerts you when a note needs your attention.
  • Improved Username Field
    Autocomplete is disabled in the username field to reduce errors.
  • Streamlined Permissions Navigation
    The permissions warning now directs you straight to the app settings page.
  • In-App Note Title Editing
    Add and edit note titles directly within the app.
  • Easier Workstation Reconnection
    Reconnecting to your workstation is now smoother and more intuitive.

Like iOS, Android users can now add and edit note titles directly within the app. We’ve also simplified reconnecting to a workstation, and we’ve even updated the ✨App Icon ✨

Chow-Chow 😉

Talkatoo Tips for Users

Our expert team has a few tips to help you excel in your documentation efforts.

  1. Record Notes Immediately
    Instead of waiting until the end of the day, try to record your notes right after each patient visit. This small habit can save you time and improve the accuracy of your notes, ultimately giving you more hours back in your day.
  2. Start with Key Information
    When beginning your dictation, always include the following essential details at the start of each note:

    • Patient’s full name (first and last)
    • Patient ID Number
    • Date of the visit (especially if it’s for a previous date)
  3. Use SOAP Format
    Dictate using the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) format. Begin each section with clear headings to organize your findings effectively.
  4. Default Setting
    If no observations are dictated for body systems, they will automatically default to “within normal limits.” If vitals are not mentioned, they will remain blank.
  5. Single Patient Per Note
    Ensure that each note pertains to only one patient to maintain the accuracy and clarity of the records.
  6. Optimizing Audio Quality
    For the best audio quality, hold the phone within 12 inches of your mouth while dictating. Remember that the microphone is typically located on the front of the phone.

Implementing these tips can really make your documentation process the cat’s pajamas — quicker, more precise, and more efficient.

Stay tuned—there’s more to come! We’re not kitten around when we say we’ve got some pawsitively exciting features in the works for future updates!

Thanks for tuning in!
