OfficeMate/ExamWRITER now supported on the iPad!

Have you ever wanted to check your appointment schedule from home or from a coffee shop or review patient notes conveniently at home? Thought about using an iPad in your exam room to improve your patients’ perception of technology in your practice? Now you can. Eyefinity® today announced that it supports use of OfficeMate/ExamWRITER on the iPad. 

Using an iPad allows the eyecare professional to enter information right into their practice management or electronic health records system as they talk with the patient rather than turning away to use a laptop.

Through the offering, clients will be able to use their iPad to access a computer running OfficeMate/ExamWRITER in their practice through a remote desktop protocol (RDP) app. For more information, visit the Eyefinity booth (#1857) at the 2012 International Vision Expo East. OfficeMate/ExamWRITER clients can login at www.officemate.net/ipad.aspx to learn more.

  1. I just tested the app out and love it! Thanks for the information, I am going to set everything up tonight and use it in my office! I hope to buy some more iPads, and when I do, I am going to put OfficeMate on them!🙂

  2. If this application is using the RDP, are the mouse actions adapted for swiping?

    • The RDP app is actually responsible for translating taps and swipes into clicks and scrolls. We recommend that you use iTap Remote RDP not only for its security features, but also because it uses a variety of multitouch gestures to manipulate on-screen controls. Since ExamWRITER was designed with tablets in mind, it is fairly easy to tap through an exam. OfficeMate, on the other hand, requires a lot of free-form data entry, and so the iPad may only be useful for checking the schedule or reviewing orders. For information about the requirements, setup, and multitouch gestures, review the “Using OfficeMate/ExamWRITER on an Apple iPad” document.
