It depends on the total size of your hospital. One iPad may be sufficient for smaller clinics with 1 or 2 technicians performing treatments. Larger facilities may benefit from the use of multiple iPads. Using the iPad to record treatment is convenient, you have the opportunity to utilize it for filling out of documentation on the patient’s side.
We usually recommend that Doctors use the web version of Smart Flow, while the iPad is preferable for Technicians. When it comes to admitting a patient, a Doctor can say for example: "Fluffy is staying, please start Vomiting/Diarrhea template for her, but remove the Cerenia". In this case, the technician can quickly admit the patient with appropriate treatment template on the flowsheet! In order to optimize your workflow, it is also possible to customize the templates so that each Doctor can have their own personal template.
NOTE: That when entering procedures, all iPads are synchronized, so you can always access any patient and continue their treatment from another iPad. This can be very useful, especially if you need to charge the device during the day. Thus, the total number of iPad depends on the size of your practice and staff preferences.
