    There are so many really helpful websites out there these days, so adding another one to your list may seem like overkill right now. I share your skepticism, so I would encourage you only to use our website if you wish to be more efficient in your day as a hospitalist or Emergency Physician. Still not convinced...let's show you around.

    What is MD+Chart?

    MD+Chart is a medical community where together, we aim to improve electronic documentation and decision-making while working in a hospital or clinic setting.  The website is dedicated to templates, key resources and encourages collaboration of great minds. It is a free resource dedicated to physicians in Canada and around the world. Learn more about the platform by clicking here.

    What is in the platform?

    The Home Screen

    Once you have signed into MD+Chart, you will automatically be redirected to the Home screen (shown below) of the platform. This is where we will be adding important updates, share some of the cool process maps that our members are coming up with and allow you to enter restricted parts of the website that is made just for you.

    Navigating

    We tried to make the website as user friendly as possible. Medicine is a huge field, so we created 3 navigation systems within the platform.

    • SEARCH
      • The search form is located in the right upper corner, beneath the billing and PPO shortcuts.
    • MAIN NAVIGATION
      • The main navigation menu is found in the left sidebar underneath the MD+Chart Logo.
      • This menu will connect you with the different pages within the website that is hosting the templates, videos and a lot more.
    • QUICK LINKS
      • The Quick Links section is loaded with links to websites and tools that we use on a daily basis. These resources are located in all pages within the platform.

    Documentation

    To reach the templates, simply select the department that you are working in. I will navigate the Hospitalist Section for this post.

    Once you click on the specific department, the site will direct you to the templates we have created.

    The following templates are available for hospitalists:

    • History and physical
    • Progress Note
      • 3 x versions
    • Discharge Summary
    • Consult
    • Phone Call
    • Critical Care
    Example of a template embedded in the platform

    Our templates are designed to be imported into your voice recognition software or directly within your EMR. To copy the code, simply click on the Copy button and Paste it where you wish to use the template.

    My personal preference is simply to leave the templates in the website and copy and paste them on the go. Another way to use the templates is to copy and paste it into your voice recognition software and then to create a macro, command or shortcut.  We leave this up to your own discretion and what fits in with your flow.

    Billing

    Finding ICD-9 codes on Google can be time consuming although much more convenient than reading through a 100 page document and finding them manually. Our community is creating an easy way to find ICD-9 codes. Simply click on the ICD-9 Icon in the right upper corner. This will bring up the finder and you can start entering the word and retrieve the code you are looking for. If the code is not available, you can upload the code by clicking on the Add Code icon.

    Closing Remarks

    MD+Chart is not neurosurgery, but it can help you be more efficient and more goal directed when doing electronic notes. Trust me, it required months and months of trial and error to get to this point and if it can help us, then hopefully it can help you as well.

    MD+Calc Integration

    We use MD+Calc a lot, so we simply integrated it into the platform to improve efficiency. It took a bit of coding to get this right, but now physicians on MD+Chart will have one click access to the best medical calculator on the web.

    COVID

    COVID-19

    The Novel Coronavirus 2019, was first reported on in Wuhan, China in late December 2019. The outbreak was declared a public health emergency of international concern in January 2020 and on March 11th, 2020, the outbreak was declared a global pandemic. The spread of this virus is now global with lots of media attention. The virus has been named SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes has become known as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This new outbreak has been producing lots of hysteria and false truths being spread, however the data surrounding the biology, epidemiology, and clinical characteristics are growing daily, making this a moving target. REBEL COVID-19
    will serve as a summary of what is currently known, how to screen, when to test, and how to prevent spread, and any new data/information on COVID-19.
