The piClinic provides a low-cost solution that is built on the digital principles to help clinics automate their existing paper patient record system and patient-visit reporting. Adopting a piClinic system provides immediate reporting benefits while preparing the clinic to move to an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system in the future.

Clinics can adopt the piClinic system and functionality that best fits their existing patient and record workflow and the system can grow with the clinic.
Moving from a paper-based patient ID and record system to a piClinic system helps clinics organize their workflow, periodic reporting, and patient record keeping. The piClinic system’s design supports the customer at their current level of organization and guides them through increasing levels of organization and automation. The levels of automation that the piClinic Console supports are, in order from most basic to most sophisticated:
Automating the Clinic’s Patient Master Index
Entering patients into the automated Patient Master Index of a piClinic Console, helps a clinic identify patient information more quickly, maintain up-to-date patient information, and eliminate duplicate and incorrect patient information.
Automating the Clinic’s Daily Patient Log
As a clinic begins to track their patients in the Clinic’s Patient Master Index, they can then keep an accurate log of the patients who have visited the clinic. piClinic systems track patients as they are admitted to and discharged from the clinic. The piClinic system maintains a summary of each visit, which provides a quick view of the patient’s clinic history. The diagnoses from these visits are coded using the ICD-10 diagnoses codes and they can be reported in daily logs of activity as well as in periodic summaries.
Automating periodic Clinic reports
By coding the diagnoses at the time of the patient’s visit, piClinic systems can provide accurate and timely summaries of clinic activities. Periodic reports and statistical summaries of clinic activity can be prepared in seconds instead of days.
