My years using WritePad
I have been using WritePad for about 15 years now. I first started using it to make it easier to properly document my auto injury cases. WritePad's features allow so much customization that my daily soap notes and my medical legal narratives on exam days are superb.
Attorneys have told me that no one does a better job of properly documenting my personal injury patients cases and because of that, they are able to get better settlements more quickly than patients of other doctors using less effective documentation. Whenever I have a patient with a new attorney they almost always complement us on our documentation.
Now I use it on all my patients for great documentation that will pass muster on required levels of info per Medicare and commercial insurance.
WritePad is HIPPA compliant and is also government approved for patient record keeping.
It saves me countless hours and thousands of dollars a year on record keeping and it has been my major tool in my practice ever since I first started using.
What has amazed me from the start is the fact that it is apparently bulletproof and has never failed to work . The few times I've had a glitch all I had to do was shut down the computer and restart and I was back where I was without any loss of information. The only time in the last 15 years that I have had to use tech support (except during the learning curve) was when my computer hard drive self-destructed and we reinstalled with the latest version. Fortunately, by using thumb drives for data backup, we were able to restore all of my data over the 15 years that I have been using WritePad except for the previous day's work which had not been backed up.
The tech and sales people are very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. They have made my nightmare go away. The structure of WritePad is such that you will seamlessly provide and construct exam reports that will pass upper level EMR requirements and successfully pass any audits by Medicare, Medicaid or commercial insurance companies.
I think it was a stroke of good luck that I started with WritePad so many years ago.
