LemG's Review of Epic CantoReviewed on 9/29/18 11:59 AM
Using at Vidant medical center. Need: Be able to update PMH and other histories Be able to update problem list Be able to fill out handoff section Be able to order staff messages by date as well as priority In clinic, be able to see result/trends on one half of screen while composing staff message (to nurse) on other half of screen. Would be great if in the future it were compatible with Apple Pencil for writing notes Like: Nice interface Like jot section - works with pencil - is their a jot summary where you can see all jots on all patients? i.e a “to-do” list.

The app needs to be updated to work with the new Face ID enabled iPad Pro models

Canto has a much better interface than the Citrix app, but remains very limited and usable only to view notes, labs, and patient lists. You can dictate a note, but can’t use templates or dot phrases. Most critical for me is the message board. However, I cannot sort the incoming phone calls, MyChart messages, or refills (let alone respond). It’s less than useless with the hundreds of messages that populate each list. Unread messages should automatically be on top, but they are instead buried (same in Haiku). Frustrating! Please talk to users and fix this ASAP.

It's a good idea but underdeveloped. You can't read inpatient progress notes so it's not useful for rounding other than as a directory of where your patients are and maybe to alert you to critical labs. For any other hospital work you're going to need to log into a workstation anyway. As noted by others, no real way to annotate labs or send results to your patients, plus you don't see everything in your in basket so you need to get back to a real computer. As for clinic use, it would be nice to have a list of progress notes available for review prior to going into a room. For use off site, you can't order meds or message patients so you're going to be tied to a telephone anyway. Great start, would like to see epic put some effort into this. Until then, I'm not throwing away my laptop.

Glad to see epic making iOS native apps. Would love to see these expanded to support full touch based epic hospital medical record access, order entry, note writing, and ability to use the app on rounds to negate the use of a desktop or laptop. I have full faith that this is possible. Would be amazing to have a fully touch based app for inpatient care!

Dragon dictation into the patient note has worked wonderfully before. Now the cursor randomly bounce around. Please fix this as soon as possible as Dragon dictation is almost unusable at the present time

Very disappointing. What you can do is look up lab results and written progress notes. So so many things you can't see or do.

It is a clean uncluttered interface. However it is limited. You do, have however the ability to look at hospital notes. So the previous reviewer may not have that functionality implemented at his hospital. Or seen the nonobvious way to get to them. I agree that the ability to interact in some way, especially order writing and writing progress notes would make this a truly useful app.
Velocity of Sound's Review of Epic CantoReviewed on 11/19/18 12:29 PM
The low rating is because this app could be so much more useful than it is. It’s stable and faster to get into than remoting in through Citrix, its interface is touch-oriented, and it won’t drain your battery like Citrix… but that’s where the positives end. You can’t time mark anything, There’s no way to view all lab results at once; you’re stuck selecting from a drop-down box that doesn’t even utilize the entire height of the screen. On my iPad mini, it doesn’t even use half of the screen. Reviewing vitals is limited to the last few entries, with no way to go farther back in time. You can’t manage orders. You can’t write any documentation. I use Canto for quickly referencing my notes during rounds, but that’s about it. With the release of the iPad Pro it seems as if Canto could easily be a mobile clinician’s most-used app, but the above limitations and the lack of split-screen support make Canto little more than a tease of what could be.
