How NextPen Works
A tiny camera in this pen's tip captures everything as it is written or drawn. Simply place the pen in a USB docking station, approve the data, and NextPen automatically fills the structured data fields in a patient's record. A perfect image of the form is also captured and can automatically be attached to the record, making it ideal for signatures and drawings.
Using industry-standard laser printers with ordinary copy paper, NextPen prints a nearly-invisible "fingerprint" on the background of the page that identifies the form and the patient, meaning that records can't be misfiled when stored in your EHR.
