Both Haiku and Canto provide easy access to chart review, patient lists, schedules, and messaging. Specific functions of both applications include:

  • Search the database for patients not on your list or schedule
  • Review and update patient information
  • Keep up to date on medications, allergies, immunizations, medical history or the problem list
  • View reports about outpatient encounters including diagnosis and orders
  • View reports on inpatient encounters including admission notes, vitals, active orders and discharge.
  • Review previous encounters
  • Review patient results including labs and imaging; and see new or abnormal results immediately
  • Read and reply to Staff and Results messages from InBasket

For Canto users, you'll have more tools to complete workflows you could previously only complete in Hyperspace:

  • Use system or personal SmartTools such as SmartPhrases and SmartLists to complete notes
  • Epic Monitor: a flexible, inpatient review tool that condenses critical parts of a patient's chart for a quick and intuitive review workflow.

Safe and Secure

Haiku and Canto are completely secure and confidential. All data transmitted to and from the server are encrypted using SSL.

Because 2-factor authentication is embedded in the app, you will not need to use a fob to access Haiku or Canto. Additionally, Haiku and Canto are assigned to specific devices; therefore you cannot access the apps from someone else’s device.
