“ As a primary care clinician my time is precious and I felt under constant pressure to make the best decisions for my patients in the shortest time possible. Those demands are not going away so I designed PatientLeaf to give me breathing space and to make better decisions about my patients’ care. It has made a big difference in how my clinics run. GPs, nurses and HCAs will all benefit from PatientLeaf because you get better clinical information and more quickly.”
Dr Raza Toosy - Co-founder
Every clinician directly responsible for the care of their patient at the point of consultation in the surgery.
You have a site-wide licence which means that once you have purchased PatientLeaf any of the clinicians in your practice can have PatientLeaf installed on their PC.
We are currently working on adding numerous modules, covering major conditions including asthma, diabetes, heart disease, CKD etc.
PatientLeaf is an application that views EMIS’ current patient information on your screen. It presents a patient’s medical record in a more succinct way and no data leaves the surgery.
