Nurses can spend as much as 50% of their professional lives in
data collection and management. - Some of you out there I'm sure
will say that estimate is low :) so I get excited when I find a
data management tool that speeds and simplifies the process.
Syncplicity from Cognitive Root is just such a tool.
Syncplicity requires no programming skills of any
kind to use - heck you don't even need to know how to type to create
Palm documents with ease!
Syncplicity is a Windows based desktop application
for your Palm.
If you've ever wanted to transfer information from
your word processing program, a web page or an email to your Palm,
Syncplicity is the answer. You install the application on your Windows
based PC, and use it to create a Palm OS document by simply cutting
and pasting data from any electronic text source into the Syncplicity
You can then specify where on your Palm to insert the data:
Date book, Address book, Memo, ToDo or create a Palm Document.
Another great example of the ease of use was supplied
by Susan K Newbold. Susan is a Nursing Informatics Consultant and
maintains an excellent resource of Nursing
Informatics and Health Informatics Conferences on her
The Nursing Informatics and Health Informatics Conferences
web page lists all the the upcoming Informatics Conferences. In
the past if you wanted to record and keep any of this information
you would have to either print the entire page or manually transcribe
the information you were interested in.
With Syncplicity all you need do is highlight the
conference information you want.In this example it's the AMIA conference
on Nov. 4-8th, 2000 in Los Angeles, where a paper on the Implementation
of Mobile Computing System in Clinical Environment: MobileNurse(TM)
is being presented.
...paste it into the Syncplicity window and click
on the Date Book icon...
...and the next time you do a HotSync all the information
is there for you!
You can use the same simple process to cut and paste
your patients lab results that have been sent up to the nursing
station PC, then HotSync it to your Palm and you've got info to-go!
