Palmedic was designed to allow for the use of plug-ins
for data entry and reporting. This basic design allows
Palmedic to be infinitely expandable. Many plug-ins exist
for Palmedic already, several are in the works at any given
moment, and JRAd consulting can create custom plug-ins
according to a user's specification. Contact plug-insat jrad
for details on custom plug-ins.
Sets are combinations of plug-ins considered to work
together or be common enough to be included in a group. Due
to memory constraints on the Newton family of devices, it is
preferable to use a set of plug-ins instead of a great
multitude of individual plug-ins.
The standard set comes complete with the admissions,
allergies, medications, notes, problems, procedures, tests,
and to dos plug-ins. It is the set that is included in the
Palmedic 2.0 program file as the 'PInstall.pkg' and
Tracks your patient's admissions, including dates of
admission, chief complaint, location, and code
Maintains a list of your patient's current allergies,
including reaction/allergy manifestations.
Maintains a list of a patient's contacts, including
physicians, family, emergency, pharmacy, etc. Can link to
the Newton Names file for rapid access to a contact's
Tracks a patient's medications, keeping them separated
into current medications and a medication log if desired.
This plug-in allows for the printing of scripts and
interfaces with K2
consultants' LexiDrugs for fast drug information
reference. Medication information can be added and edited
directly by the user.
Allows for the entry of patient notes, be they as long as
a full history and physical or as short as a reminder.
Anything that can be entered into the Newton Notes
application can be entered into these notes- handwritten
text, shapes, sketches, etc. A "macro writer" feature allows
for the fast entry of other patient data into written notes,
including current/all medications, problem lists, to do
Documents a problem list for patients including problem,
problem type, and dates the problem was
Tracks any procedures a patient has undergone, including
date and description of each procedure.
Enters notes in "segments" which allows for greater
manipulation of note contents by sharing information across
notes, macros, etc. Integtrates with Transcriptionist for
even greater flexibility in note creation.
Allows for the entry and tracking of patient test
results. The plug-in is designed to allow either straight
text entry (a la notes) or entry in fields/blanks. Test
templates can be designed by the user and may include fields
for calculating results.
Maintains a list of to dos for each patient including to
do category (used for selective filtering) and to do
description. Allows for the designation of ASAP or due date
and time. Includes the capability of setting alarms based on
the due date so that the user is reminded of important to
dos before they come due.
Specialty plug-ins are modules that require third party
applications or which were written with specific purposes in
mind. These plug-ins may not be ideal for the average
customer, either because they do not need them, or they do
not have the necessary tools to use them. JRAd consulting
can produce specialty plug-ins on a contract basis. Contact

Tracks billables using standard ICD-9 and CPT codes.
Adds a module to the To Do section of Palmedic allowing
one to check off and date health maintenance items to be
performed on patients. Includes preventive medicine
recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Medicine Task
Integrates with and requires the third-party,
note-writing application Transcriptionist.
This plug-in allows for "automatic" note writing by
incorporating data already entered into Palmedic with
Transcriptionist's robust note writing
This plug-in requires Palmedic 2.2 or later and
Transcriptionist 1.8 or later.
An evolution of the standard procedure plug-in that
incorporates the user's role in the procedure. Reports added
by the plug-in allow for reporting of procedure and role for
applications like residency program or accreditation
