Patient Access to Medstori from home or physician’s office:

An email invitation to fill out an Initial Psychiatric Evaluation form can be sent to patients through a menu in Medstori. The patient receives a link to open the Psychiatric Evaluation app questionnaire. This link carries only an invitation. It does not carry any patient’s information. The patient does not download any information on his or her computer, iPad or smartphone..

When the patient fills out information from home, using the link, patients will hit the Submit button at the end of the questionnaire and this information will be stored in a database on a server. This information is no longer accessible to patient once submitted. This information becomes instantly available to a physician’s office for review.

If the patient fills out the questionnaire on an iPad or PC in the physician’s office in a separate room that device has no access to any other patient’s information. Once a patient hits the Submit button, this patient will also not have any access to any information that he or she filled out. Only the physician or and physician designated staff will have access to it.

Physician Access To Medstori:

When the patient is seen in a physician’s room for psychiatric evaluation, the physician pulls up the information that the patient has submitted on his iPad or PC. The physician can click on a sidebar view record which will pull up a complete list of all patient names. The physician can choose the patient’s name by double clicking on the name which will open the questionnaire that he or she filled out. Once this is opened, an edit button will appear on the top. When the edit button is clicked, it will change many parts of the questionnaire to a red color. All these are editable fills so the physician can change the information related to depression, anxiety, number of years, etc. There are also red boxes at certain locations where a physician can click in the box and type freehand or even use the iPad or PC's speech recognition capabilities to input additional information.

The physician will go through the history of present illness, past history, alcohol and drug abuse history, family history, personal history and edit answers.

The Mental status examination is followed by personal history, which pops up automatically with some default answers. Default answers can be modified depending on your style of practice. Default answers can also be edited to the accuracy of the patient’s mental status presentation. For example if the patient is coherent but not logical, the physician can click on logical or change it to paranoid if appropriate. As another example, if the patient is able to spell “WORLD” but not able to spell it backwards, this can be clicked and changed.

After the mental status examination, clicking on diagnosis will open many common diagnoses. This can further be customized according to the need of your practice. Labs, treatment plan, names of the medications, and types of psychotherapy fields are all self-explanatory.

Clicking on the refresh button in the browser ensures that all information entered is refreshed.

This document can be printed or saved as a PDF file by clicking on the printer icon on the top right hand corner of the screen. The PDF document can be saved and printed later and put into a paper chart or imported into an electronic medical record.
