If there is a need for data entry, user defined codes help to simplify the most complex processes and save time.
  • Administration – The PS suite adapts to the workflow of the doctor that it serves. Doctors will no longer forget assessments or diagnostic investigations because the PS suite will remind them based upon guidelines that the doctor can set and reset at any time based on compliance measures. The administration suite also automates patient record updates, certain mass messages and billing for prescriptions.
