Epic's Haiku (for iOS and Android devices) gives physicians secure and portable access to patient charts, whether they are in the hallways of their practice, doing rounds at the hospital or away from work. Functionality includes chart review, patient lists, scheduling, patient search, messaging, e-prescribing, notes entry with speech-to-text recognition and clinical media capture. Haiku works on both the iPhone and iPod Touch, and also supports dictation.
Epic's Canto (for iPad) offers access to Epic charts, messaging and other EHR functions. Physicians can use Canto to check schedules, respond to messages, dictate notes and review lab results from anywhere. Physicians doing hospital rounds can get up to speed on patients before entering their rooms and dictate notes or send messages immediately after leaving. Canto works on iPads running iOS 5.0 or higher.
