#OTalk my trust only has dictated letters on an electronic system to read. Have used lots of different examples in different places though
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@Life_4_Living What do you use the systems for? #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood Rehab optima is what we use mostly. It's for our daily documentations and reports. #otalk
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
@PaulSugarhood Electronic patient records to record therapy notes and to share important information with the MDT team in real time #OTalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@Scrumpess So, are most of your records on paper? #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood Some nursing home rehab companies in US use different systems. #otalk

Hannah Silcock @scrumpess
@PaulSugarhood #OTalk most of ours is on paper. I find it frustrating, especially after coming from places further on with electronic records
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood @Scrumpess In my setting, though buildings that got started (as well as select small buildings) still use paper documentation. #otalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@shelleyamybeth #OTalk how digital care records help or hinder occupational therapy practice
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schot
@PaulSugarhood where I work we don't have any digital records.. all paper based #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@Scrumpess @PaulSugarhood I find that way too. But I was glad I got transitioned into electronic records at my job rather than dive into straight away. #otalk
Hannah Silcock @scrumpess
@PaulSugarhood #otalk although I have never seen, what I would consider, a fully integrated MDT electronic patient record
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
A lot of paper still used! RT @kerri_schOT @PaulSugarhood where I work we don't have any digital records.. all paper based #otalk

@PaulSugarhood @shelleyamybeth Now our documentations most of the time look like it is coming from a cookie cutter... at least from what I am using. #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schot
@shelleyamybeth digital care records! #otalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@Scrumpess #OTalk There are many different systems in use in the UK e.g. RiO, EMIS, Carefirst

RT @PaulSugarhood: @Scrumpess #OTalk There are many different systems in use in the UK e.g. RiO, EMIS, Carefirst
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schot
@KwakuOT slightly if 2+ people are wanting the same notes at the same.. can hinder work #otalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@BillWongOT @shelleyamybeth Interesting, do they force you into recording certain things in certain ways, which may not fit OT? #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood @shelleyamybeth We are given options to type in the billing categories. But most of the time we just click what is available to us to bill. #otalk
Molly Harris @mollharrisot
I used RiO when on placement in settings in Berkshire, my first placement setting was paperless but second was nearly all paper based #OTalk
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
#OTalk I've experienced both paper based+electronic. I prefer electronic as I can edit+condense notes more efficiently+always have access
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
Seems like there is a lot of variation, with much paper! #otalk
Erin Cullen @erinotstudent
#OTalk I was stunned by the primacy of paper on my acute physical placement
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@shelleyamybeth @PaulSugarhood For me if I have to co-sign for assistants and write reports, that can be a bit time consuming. #otalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@ErinOTstudent In my experience, acute settings seem to have more paper than community #otalk
Louise @norwoodthreads
Evening everyone. Lurking tonight as on family holiday but looking forward to catching up via the transcript #OTalk
Hannah Silcock @scrumpess
@mollharrisOT #otalk how did you find it going from one to the other? Did you have a preference?
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
Shall we move to Q2: in what ways do digital care records help your occupational therapy practice? #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@shelleyamybeth @PaulSugarhood And I often am a little afraid if I am not there to supervise the assistants at such facilities physically. #otalk
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
@PaulSugarhood #OTalk I had no idea so many workplaces still used paper based notes! It's 2017!!!
OTalk @otalk_
#OTalk Q2 https://t.co/6kh6aGJelI
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@AmyStringerOT @PaulSugarhood US there are still some! So not alone in U.K. #otalk
Chloe Woodley @chloewoodleyot
I've experienced both, but find electronic easier & quicker to be more concise. I found that I rambled a bit using paper notes! #OTalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@AmyStringerOT Recording on paper has some advantages - more flexible, less rule / drop-down box driven? #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood For me in writing reports, having all the available notes in one place is great! Also, no need to fight for charts w/ departments! #otalk
Life for Living Ltd @life_4_living
@PaulSugarhood #OTalk notes are quick to complete, easily accessible and more portable than paper copies. I am in the community so electronic is best
Hannah Silcock @scrumpess
@AmyStringerOT @PaulSugarhood I have 1 computer in my room with 6/7 clinicians. Resources need to be improved before we can even consider going electronic #OTalk
Molly Harris @mollharrisot
@Scrumpess preferred using RiO it was so much easier and efficient! However second placement was on a ward so it was different using care plans #otalk
Celia Bentley @celiabentleyot
@AmyStringerOT @PaulSugarhood #otalk crazy isn't it? Paper notes get lost/fall out of files but the main problem is being unable to read other professionals handwriting!
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@BillWongOT Instant access to info seems to be a benefit? #otalk

Chloe Woodley @chloewoodleyot
@PaulSugarhood @AmyStringerOT That's true! Sometimes it's hard to fill the all the boxes if it hasn't been observed etc. But then it does help with thinking.. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood In a setting where productivity is king, instant access helps a lot! #otalk
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
Electronic patient records mean more efficient, timely, accessible patient notes. Also, handwriting legibility isn't an issue #OTalk
Louise @norwoodthreads
@AmyStringerOT #OTalk Ditto!
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schot
@PaulSugarhood @AmyStringerOT think there's pro's and con's .. it's very time consuming to write, but don't have to wait for an available computer etc .. #otalk

@PaulSugarhood @BillWongOT Only a benefit if there is access to the technology can be a problem e.g. lack of computer terminals. #OTalk https://t.co/MBEUgFl7tO
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@kerri_schOT @PaulSugarhood @AmyStringerOT A con is that if you come at same time as everyone else, now you have to fight for computer access in rehab room. #otalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@mooartdotcom @BillWongOT Access to a computer seems to be common problem, backed up by recent surveys #otalk
Chloe Woodley @chloewoodleyot
@kerri_schOT @PaulSugarhood @AmyStringerOT And when electronic systems crash, nothing can be done as notes cannot be accessed! #OTalk
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
Yes you have to wait or a computer, but you also have to wait for and locate patient folders when it's paper-based. #OTalk
Erin Cullen @erinotstudent
@PaulSugarhood True. Interested in this topic - my instinct is digital=better but in hospital ppl with experience are so wary I started to doubt it #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schot
@PaulSugarhood on placement i've experienced both and found digital care records easy & quick to access, enabling making goals/plan easier #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood @mooartdotcom In my company, usually is one computer per licensed therapist (assistants don't count even though they have to chart too). #otalk
Hannah Silcock @scrumpess
@PaulSugarhood #OTalk everything is in 1 place. You don't have to ask a patient the same question 5 other different professionals have already asked them
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
I also don't think paper based is the most hygienic, but maybe that's just me! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@AmyStringerOT That's why I am coming super late. I guarantee will have a computer to me for part of the day! #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schot
exactly, very frustrating.. at least you can write anywhere and everywhere #otalk https://t.co/8tbMb7xhS6
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@AmyStringerOT If everyone comes at around 7-8, coming at 10 or so has its advantages. #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@kerri_schOT In my documentation system, you can write anywhere too if you have a PC or someway you can get on Windows with a different OS. #otalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
Q3: how do you work around digital care records if/when they do not support your practice? #otalk
Celia Bentley @celiabentleyot
@AmyStringerOT True #otalk. Either way there's a lot of wasted time but in 2017 I would have thought tablets would be used more to increase efficiency.
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schot
@ChloeWoodleyOT @PaulSugarhood @AmyStringerOT argh nightmare! when you lose all your work .. #otalk
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
I think in terms of confidentiality and data protection, while both ways have associated risks, electronic seems to be more secure #OTalk
charlotte dunkley @charldunkley
@PaulSugarhood #OTalk sorry I'm late to the discussion. We use nervecentre electronic system for obs and task lists otherwise we still use written notes.
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood Good thing about my system as I said earlier is that you can always type in instead of using its builder. #otalk
Dr Janice Jones @janicej6873404

Hannah Silcock @scrumpess
#OTalk a con=less personal. In outpatients if i was typing into a computer looking away from a patient it's harder to build rapport

@PaulSugarhood On my mental health placement, you used the same system to read/write notes from the CMHT & inpatient wards #OTalk

@PaulSugarhood @mooartdotcom In my case, sometimes that can be complete rehab notes... if it's from a facility I am familiar. #otalk
Amy Stringer @amystringerot
Just out of curiosity, which do people prefer overall? Knowing that there are clearly pros and cons for both #OTalk
Paul Sugarhood @paulsugarhood
@mooartdotcom Great! Any luck with local authority and social services records e.g. care packages, major adaptations? #otalk

@PaulSugarhood When we are working in a rehab team, communication is still key- no matter you are full time, part time, or just helping out! #otalk

@PaulSugarhood #OTalk Not so far! :-D https://t.co/4XFgEbi98u

#OTalk another challenge w both forms of notes is the abbreviations used by diff staff! I felt like it was a foreign language at first!

Also, do ya'll realise how many trees we would be saving by everyone going electronic!? #TreeHugger #OTGreen #OTalk

@PaulSugarhood And if you are helping out one time or occasionally, sometimes it's better to be cautious with electronic records. #otalk

Completely agree! And abbreviations used between services is even worse #OTalk https://t.co/avwBPrQrgL
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood Yes- because sometimes all it takes is one bad note in our setting to set chain reaction. #otalk

@PaulSugarhood @OTalk_ Having awareness of patient needs/involvement in other areas would be great and would provide an improved patient journey/experience #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@PaulSugarhood And it's tough when a therapist all of a sudden drops the patient's performance by multiple levels. #otalk

So, we seem to be a long way from fully interoperable and accessible records. Any final thoughts? #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTRL @billwongot
@AmyStringerOT And also communication too. I always encourage my assistants to talk to me about patient progress. #otalk
