DrChrono, an iPad-based electronic health record system, lets clinicians input patient histories and physical exams, do e-prescribing and patient scheduling, convert medical speech into text, and add X-rays and other images. It also provides a template for SOAP notes--the traditional Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan approach used to keep track of patients' course of treatment in many medical settings. DrChrono also can make use of an iPad's video recording capability, letting clinicians add an on-the-spot photo of a skin lesion or a video of an abnormal gait or facial tic, for instance. DrChrono is free to about $800 per month, depending on the number of features the user chooses.
