"Doctors can use our online portal to create macro buttons that
appear in SOAP note screen," said DrChrono.com COO and Co-Founder Daniel Kivatinos. A macro simulates keystrokes, allowing

The feature, according to Kivatinos, lays
the foundation to address a larger problem in the industry. "Many doctors tell
us that they struggle to figure out how to bill certain kinds of visits and
treatments," he said. "As such, we intend to build a social network-style
interactive community into DrChrono.com’s online portal that will allow
physicians to share knowledge about how to document cases and treatments, as
well as how to more effectively bill insurance companies, or anything else that
they may want to discuss with colleagues around the U.S."
