We are pleased to announce that Mobius now supports split screen functionality and appointment ticklers. To use these features now simply update the app on your iPhone Plus or iPad.

Why use split screen?

Mobius turns your smartphone or tablet into a remote control for the EMR. The app includes built in efficiencies at every phase of the patient visit – from intake to documentation – so you can spend less time on the computer and more time with patients.

“The #1 benefit of using split screen is to reduce app switching so you can stay focused on the task at hand.”

Split screen (or “multitasking”) is an iPad and iPhone Plus function that allows users to open two apps at once. For example, you might want to type a note in the EMR through Mobius while also researching a clinical question on UpToDate.

The #1 benefit of using split screen is to reduce app switching so you can stay focused on the task at hand. Fewer taps and swipes mean less distraction and a smoother patient encounter.

Opening apps side-by-side also means you can use two Mobius features – like Scribe and Capture – at the same time. Want to dictate notes into the EMR without closing a relevant X-Ray image? No problem – just split the screen and record the note.

How to use split screen

Your iPad or iPhone Plus Dock makes it easy to open two apps at the same time. Simply drag an app from the Dock to the right or left edge of the screen to make a split view.

Apple calls working with two apps at the same time “multitasking.” See Apple’s iPad instructions to learn more about switching between apps and opening two apps at once.

Appointment ticklers

Providers using athenahealth are already familiar with appointment ticklers. Mobius now supports this function directly in the app on your mobile device. With the latest update all it takes is quick tap in the app and staff will be notified to schedule a follow up appointment.

Mobius Clinic is the revolutionary app that’s proven to eliminate up to 90 percent of keyboarding and computer distraction from every patient visit. Not yet a Mobius user? Sign up for a live demo and we’ll get you started with a 14-day free trial.
