  • Loss of flowsheets and viewing current labs first Apr 27, 2019

    By peteramd
    With the new updates we lost flowsheets and labs vital signs and also lost viewing only current labs first and the ability to pull up old labs now the laboratory screen is filled with The clutter of old laboratory results that Are of no importance to the current day placing orders are slower constantly verification of patient physician relationship and is slow. Microbiology not available such as cultures and sensitivity, all charge after discharge not accessible, medication history dosing scheduled of current inpatient orders not available. All this should be available just like they are on otherPrograms. Can’t believe it’s not done.
  • Getting worse Nov 13, 2017

    By Kcbarry
    This used to be a really great app, but it just keeps getting worse and worse. It seems as though you are trying to make it obsolete. Starting today it now logs out after about 10 minutes, even if I’m using the app. The display for lab results is basically useless as you can no longer look up just by the most recent labs. If I leave the app to go to another app, when I come back it goes back to the patient homepage, not where I was 30 seconds ago. When I log in for the day, it is still on the previous day. Please restore this to the functional efficient app that it previously was.
  • Very impressed Jun 29, 2020

    By TheCaliDoc
    The functionality of this application is great. It is very user-friendly providers are able to check a patient’s vitals, labs, documents, imaging reports, medications before they walk into a room. Something that needs improvement is the ability to create patient list within the mobile device. Currently there is no way to create a patient list on my phone however it would be a great addition to this application.
  • Even more disappointing than desktop version Oct 2, 2020

    By fbiskzbfjeks
    Very slow, clunky, not intuitive... took me 5 minutes of searching for patient’s contact info before I decided my time would be better spent warning others of this disappointing app.
  • Becoming more useful, still slow Nov 24, 2018

    By Jtshark
    I tend to use the iPhone app more, however my biggest issue is with the slow loading speeds. This must be improved! Otherwise, I am happy to see more ordering features and it is great for tracking labs during hospitalization.
  • Clunky Nov 11, 2017

    By Donald Mansell, MD
    Very light version of Power Chart. Voice recognition is stellar! Helpful for phone calls from patients to look up labs and imaging. Unnecessary haptic steps. Real estate taken up by useless options like on the opening page: checkbox for remember user. Not necessary because the user is always remembered anyway.

  • Not sure if it is really practical to use !! Apr 26, 2017

    By Eks.
    There are many flaws and errors and of course positive developments in the app. 1- pretty slow and ask password all the time if it becomes inactive for a while 2- it don't pull up labs, family history, social history , medication list despite being in placed in power chart in windows and Mac version 3- it don't place current vital signs 4- very strong and accurate voice recognition software attached . I would say almost 100 accurate but there is no detail instruction how to use it under help 5- placing the orders and seeing patient list are amazingly easy. 6- it don't pull up or load any template from the server. Not sure if it is practical to use in busy clinic settings. Eks

  • No microbiology, clunky, poor UI Jun 1, 2018

    By mountain_exposure
    Desperately needs Microbiology interface. Who are you kidding? Microbiology data is >50% of inpatients. You cannot make a decision on many patient’s without knowing culture results, ID and sensitivities. So rounding with this in the hallway is limited. I’m quite facile with technology and figured how to use this with forced patience and perseverance. It is not intuitive to place and edit orders. Good luck those who claim to be luddites, then again you may not be trying this anyway. It’s so slow migrating from one patient to the next, and between patient lists. Last update seemed to help slow things more. Good job. Allow to see patients who have been discharged or in a list of discharged patients. That is important if you need to search to contact someone or follow up with them. Currently d/c’ed patients disappear from all lists. Need MAR tab to see what meds have been given and when. This helps deciding if you need to order that extra potassium or magnesium among other things. Feel free to reach out to me if you really want more feedback.

  • Keeps getting worse Oct 7, 2020

    By orthodoc05
    I cannot express how frustrating it is to go through each round of Cerner “upgrades.” Just last week we were treated to a “new look” with less stability, reliability and functionality. After spending the last 6 months improving my efficiency with the old app to the point I could side-step frequent errors and reboots, I have a brand new app to start from square one. Let’s list a few problems in two days: dictation inexplicably not recording despite appearing to be “on”, errors filling auto data fields, errors loading documentation from previous encounters, random log outs and shut downs, etc... I know that this review is pointless, because each of you reading this will be required to use this software because your clinic or hospital system already invested tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars and this is the only crappy app you can use to try to improve your workflow. Just know that the rest of us are out here feeling your pain.

    What a terrible app?
  • Old version preferred Oct 19, 2017

    By TaStreet
    When the new update came we lost an important trend review for data. For example, when a lab was selected a double tap would open the details of the lab and include a graph trend of the measured value over time. This was very valuable for many types of measurements including, vitals, specific blood pressure trends, heart rates, and important lab values. Now with the update, vitals are not available in a trend view, nor labs. Labs are only listed by dates, and not easily accessed like before. Our team rounds appreciated the ease of data access and mobility throughout the hospital on our service and power touch expedited our rounding, now since the update the data is not as timely/accurately updated, and the trending capabilities are absent. Very disappointed in the updates. Please bring back the trending graphs and detailed views of vitals and labs that were available before. Dictation is spot on 100% and a time saver, but not used anymore by our team since graphing trend review was taken away.
  • Still lacks even the most basic features Mar 16, 2021

    By Mac_User_01
    This app completely lacks the ability to perform even the most basic and frequently performed functions, such as **ordering medications.** As a physician who works with two different mobile EMR apps, Cerner’s PowerChartTouch highlights glaring feature disparities that are emblematic of the long-standing deficiencies inherent to the Cerner’s parent EMR. Of note, these deficiencies are a solved problem in other EMR apps. For example, Epic’s Haiku app has supported basic functions such as ordering medications for years. It is remarkable that — despite this profound feature disparity — Cerner’s PowerChartTouch app has made no apparent progress towards integrating even the most basic features within the past 12 months. I recommend that physicians seek out alternative EMRs when possible and avoid Cerner’s languishing platform altogether given the seeming lack of active development.
  • Major stability issues Dec 19, 2019

    By mmcdoc
    App routinely crashes resulting in lost work. Would be so convenient for charting if it didn’t crash at least once every note.
  • If I was in charge, would fire the team that made this app Feb 29, 2020

    By prtiei sjwirb
    To have a multi billion dollar EHR company coming up with such a third rate app is quite astonishing. Who designs your app?! Clicks don’t work, power plans are ill conceived,. Don’t believe me? Try using restraints or medications that create interaction alert. You will throw your phone in agony. I have used this app for years and each improvement falls short of basic software principles...
  • Accurate dictations Nov 29, 2017

    By Armrod50
    I use this app to dictate and then transfer dictated sections into the PowerChart office note. Unable to dictate social history, family history or past medical history. Useful to look at results otherwise practically worthless. As are most Cerner products which have great potential but the company seems to go out of its way to ignore customer feedback in order to improve its offerings. Such a shame!
  • Schedule viewing: open slots Apr 13, 2020

    By Archi-amateur
    Why can’t I see my available slots on my schedule? I don’t see any settings that I can adjust so it must be within the app. Also agree with previous post about being able to view other schedules - fix both issues please!!

  • Working well overall Jul 25, 2017

    By Lae883
    Very useful for review of data quickly. The most recent updates have lost blood pressure and weight data to show but still helpful and very efficient for rounds.
  • Doc pleaser Jul 14, 2016

    By hutt1995
    Overall the app continues to improve and physicians have adopted PC touch with favorable reviews. Here are a few recommendations: 1. Include a detailed list of all upgrades for new releases on the App Store. Most users are not UCERN members. 2. Allow collapsible sections such as problem list that can be saved by the user. 3. Allow tagging 4. Custom notes are needed. 5. Micro and path sections missing.
