drchrono debuts a new mobile user interface for EHR iPad application

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – October 25th, 2016: The drchrono EHR, known for bringing electronic health records to mobile devices, has just announced a major overhaul to their EHR/EMR mobile application.

Key Highlights

An Elegant, Simpler, and Modern UI

Rethinking Accessibility

  • Navigation bar enables access to the five most essential workflow categories: Dashboard, EHR, Message Center, Tasks, and Account Settings. Significant future functionality and workflow improvements planned for ‘Tasks’.
