Making Practice Fusion Stylus-compatible

Stylus pens with various apps have writing to text translation features but the various websites EMR need to be compatible with it. It would be so nice for us who love to write our notes and for patients (some how there is something more personal about writing with a patient present) if we could "write" with the stylus in our chart notes and allow the various technology already created to translate it to text.

    Yes, I would love to write my notes with a stylus directly into Practice Fusion! Sitting in front of a computer when the patient is in the room is just poor bedside manners, but taking notes, like one would have with a pen and paper once upon a time, that would be fantastic and reduce the amount of time spent on documentation at the end of the day (or the weekend). I was actually going to suggest that myself, but so glad to see that others feel the same way.

    I find I can write with the Google writing app with a stylus into PF. HOWEVER, it's not perfect. The box that I'm writing into for my SOAP notes is one teeny tiny box in one corner of my screen and the rest is taken up by other things that I don't need. I can't even see what I've already written, the box is so small. Please make PF more compatible with use for tablets.

    This will be great if you can make practice fusion stylus compatible. It will help those of us who still find typing cumbersom.
