drchrono, creator of the original Electronic Health Record (EHR) iPad app, announced today that they have been ranked the top EHR for iPad by physicians in Black Book Ranking's 2013 survey and that they would be making the full survey findings available for free to physicians. Black Book, one of the largest independent technology services and market opinion research companies with a dedicated healthcare division, ranked drchrono the top EHR for the iPad based on a survey of 485 EHR vendors used by 16,623 physicians in the United States. "This survey confirms what I already knew to be true," said Dr. Bill Metaxas, surgeon and owner of the Foot and Ankle Institute of San Francisco. "drchrono is the best EMR and Practice Management system and it runs seamlessly on the best platform, the Apple iPad." Physicians ranked drchrono the #1 overall EHR for iPad as well as the top iPad EHR for data management & processing, order & entry management, and decision support & results management. drchrono was also ranked #1 in 10 of the 18 key performance indicators (KPIs) and was the only EHR to achieve "Overwhelming Satisfaction" of all 18 KPIs. The Black Book report also includes a synopsis of the current state of the EHR industry and discusses the trend of doctors spending more on digital eHealth & mobile health (mHealth) applications, a trend expected to continue in the years to come. To further this trend, drchrono is making their entire library of approximately 1,000 digital medical forms available to physicians for free use in their practices. Physicians can search for medical forms by specialty and view how many fellow physicians have used or recommended each medical form. All medical forms physicians select for use in their practice can then be auto-loaded to their iPad or even printed directly to paper. drchrono's form builder also allows physicians to upload their existing paper forms for easy use on iPads, creating a simple and secure way to store and share forms with colleagues. Digital forms enable practices to refer patient records in a secure, HIPAA-compliant manner without incurring the costs associated with faxing and courier services. "We built the drchrono EHR for the iPad to improve patient care by eliminating the inefficiencies created by paper in the practice," said Michael Nusimow, CEO and co-founder of drchrono. "We're honored that physicians have recognized this by voting us the best iPad EHR and, with our free digital medical form library, we're committed to leading the movement to digitize the modern medical practice."
