I have used this program for over 3 years as well as several other programs.
This is my favorite software for several reasons:
1. The instructions are concise but comprehensive and specific enough to
actually inform the patient. All of the commonly used drugs are listed with
complete patient instructions including drug-drug interactions and drug-food
interactions. The diagnosis-specific instructions clearly inform the
patient and family what follow-up is needed and what adverse signs to be
2. It is easily customizable. The name, address, and phone of all the
local attending/referral sources are easily maintained and printed out on
the discharge instructions so there is never any question about the
recommended follow-up. It also includes those very important referrals to
alcohol, drug, and domestic violence resources.
3. The interface is easy to learn and can be navigated quickly. This is
important when many discharges need to be done.
There are many other excellent features and this software is well worth
