Looking for an app to manage your case load of OT/PT/SLP students information and compile notes and treatment artifacts (pictures, etc.)?
There are a number of general note taking/ note management apps that can work for organization of client/student information (e.g. Notability, Awesome Note HD). Lisa Brandolo Johnson, PT, one of the creators of Grembe, Inc. apps (developers of iCommunicate , iReward, My Pictures Talk apps ) has created a client/student management app – iConnect – Notes Edition geared to therapists that is free!
iConnect- Notes Edition app (iPhone/iPad; free) allows you to create a list of clients/students with contact information and ability to create notes, take or import pictures and email the information individually or as accumulated to yourself. It is not a data collection app. A passcode lock option provides the needed security for client/student information confidentiality.
Notes button on lower right screen provides a method of creating a note.
The note page allows options of taking a picture, importing a picture as well as creating an audio note when needing to annotate information on a therapy session on the fly. Notes created are populated with a date and time stamp automatically inserted. Workflow of the notes can be emailed individually or using the button “Mail All Notes” for archiving or use in other programs.
Below is an image of a note with pictures inserted in an iPhone/iPod.
iConnect – Notes Edition app is a basic caseload app with the ability to annotate and add pictures. Although it does not have data collection tools, it is an easy and basic app that can be used to manage caseload information. The ability to annotate and take pictures used for pre-post status/skills (grasp patterns, wound, range of motion, coloring/writing samples, current equipment, etc. ) can be extremely useful as pre-post data, recall of physical evidences, equipment available or captured skills. The ability to lock the app for privacy is essential. A discussion with work based supervisor regarding use of client information on an app is recommended.
This app could be a useful tool for therapists in the school or medically based for quick annotation of client/student information.
Thank you Grembe, Inc. for offering this app for free!
