CS-Link Tip: Adding Photos to a Patient's Chart

A picture is worth a thousand words. There are many clinical situations in which a photograph augments our documentation, conveying a complex situation in a single image.

Now a photo can be added directly to a patient's chart from your smartphone (iPhone or Android) by using the Haiku application in CS-Link™. As always, document that the patient has given you permission to take a photograph for the medical record.

In case you have not yet downloaded Haiku to your phone, it's a free application. For help, please refer to these detailed instructions in CS-Link Central:

Capturing Images Using the Haiku or Canto Applications (PDF)

Haiku: Physician Quick Start Guide (PDF)

You can learn more by visiting CS-Link Central or by scheduling a training session with Lisa Masson, MD, (lisa.masson@cshs.org) Shaun Miller, MD, (shaun.miller@cshs.org) or Alex Bram (alex.bram@cshs.org).
