Pros: " I am a physician and I like to document my patient's notes while I see them. This software is very intelligently designed with a ton of functionality. I have customized it to my practice needs. It has reduced my documentation time, cut down typing errors and made my notes look very professional.

Cons: It is a hard question. Perhaps more functionality in text formatting and ability to insert tables with formulas or calculators can enhance the features.

Overall: EXPLAINED IN DETAIL IN MY REVIEW

Great tool to decrease time spent doing what I like least about medicine...the paperwork.

Cons: Would be nice to see a feature where numbers can be assigned to variables that are then usable in math expressions.

Overall: Time saved in completing patient charts and other correspondence.

Thanks for the review, Nathan. You can actually assign numbers to variables and use them to calculate scores. We have some examples to do that on our website. Please feel free to write me with some specific situations you want to address and I'll help setting up the appropriate phrase for you.

Pros: Very stable (unlike others I tried)
Easy to add your own word lists from e.g. excel list
Fast
Good implementation of macro and forms.
And last but not least: very fast and personal support from the developer when needed.

Cons: There is a learning curve (but help is good)
Seems te depend heavily on the developer, that may prove a vulnerability in the future.

Overall: This software saves me a lot of time, especially since I'm not the fastest typist on the planet. I imported a large list of (long) medication names and all I have to type now is three letters. I also created some standard letters with the macro/form function. Fill in a few words in the form and presto! the letter is complete.

PhraseExpander is a great tool!

Pros: * Saves me about ten hours per month in typing, looking up numbers or phrases, flipping clipboard snippets, and switching apps/windows.
* Data: Keeps detailed statistics.
* Interface to the shortcuts is very detailed and flexible, allowing user to group and sort in many different ways.
* I like the ability to toggle Auto Expansion on or off with a lightning bolt icon, for each and every snippet.
* Easy to duplicate an existing snippet and tweak it for another use, another state, another facility...
* Provides automatic inline search, a great help if I haven' t memorized an assigned keystroke yet.
* Can easily set up a few expansions to start... later when you're more familiar with it, go back and organize the interface or flesh them out.
* Customer service is very responsive; the developer has personally helped me a couple times.

For Mac users: PhraseExpander is like a strange marriage between TextExpander, Alfred and Keyboard Maestro. It has greatly improved my workday relationship with Windows.

Cons: *Could be used as a Launcher, except it doesn't index commands or locations automatically; must be set individually.
*There was some learning curve the first two weeks; I definitely had to look some things up online or in the manual.
*Would like to be able to sort the statistics data, I could mine it for more ideas.

Overall: -Saves me time: about ten hours per month, demonstrably.
-Keeps my right wrist healthy: the more I can use PhraseExpander for input or switch to different windows or applications, the less I use the mouse.
-Cuts down on "menial" activity like typing, tracking, file renaming.
-Makes work more interesting because I think of ways to use PhraseExpander to speed up my projects.

The software itself is very helpful, easy to use. The customer support was very helpful.

Pros: The commands and transcripts are very easy to set on your account. It made my typing faster and easier. The customer support was extremely helpful with us while using the trial version and they help us transitioned to the paid version.

Cons: When I upgraded to the paid version or the free trial expired all of my commands were removed. Due to this, I had to type everything again.

Overall: On a regular basis as a customer support agent, I had to sent almost 40 emails per day, with Phrase Expander I was able to save time and send more than 40 emails daily. Andrea, the CEO was extremely flexible with the free trial period.

Thanks for your feedback and nice words, Eduardo. I'm sorry you had problems when moving to the licensed version and that you had to reeenter your phrases. Not sure of what happened but DATA IS PRESERVED when registering the product. PhraseExpander also automatically backs up your data so you are always be able to restore your phrases. If you had got in touch with me, I could have helped you out and restoring the information.

Pros: I use an AWESOME EHR (Elation Health), but it does not support full visit templates, so PhraseExpander is a lifesaver. It allows me to set up shortcuts that would otherwise force me to type repetitive phrases, paragraphs, procedure notes, advice given, and forms over and over and over... and over again.

PhraseExpander saves me 30-120 minutes a day of time, but incalculable frustration. I would call that priceless.

Cons: Maybe the price, but considering how much time it saves, totally worth it.
I do wish it handled graphics, but my EHR doesn't support imported graphics, so maybe a moot point.

Overall: see review

Pros: Amazing capabilities.
Ability to sort shortcuts into folders (Glossaries, and sub-glossaries).
Awesome template functionality
Excellent customization

Cons: Advanced features are difficult to understand implement. I'm sure I'm only using about 25% of the software's potential. I would love to see more downloadable templates, and a community forum for sharing templates, ideas and general problem solving. (maybe a Google group, or hosted forum)

Overall: Saves me time (I can't type). Makes my documentation/ correspondence more accurate, and intelligent, Especially when I'm tired or just just don't feel like elaborating on a topic. Helps me organize my thoughts.

A product that can be helpful in improving productivity in multiple settings.

Pros: Portability , I can use it on different computers and share the glossary,
easy to make templates and convert list into phrase.

Cons: sometimes it gives an error that the file format is not valid and it could not save the work
The window from phrase expander interfere with the drop down box of some application and I am not able to open phrase expander away from what I type
features specially saving are very slow when I open the Dragon dictation software
You should have an auto learning feature like android to give you a list of the common words you use when you type the first letters of the world
you should incorporate a medical dictionary and update the list of drugs
there is no way to find a saved phrase unless you remember the abbreviation,
you should have a feature where if you type one word you get a list of templates which contain this word
auto correction feature do not work well
You should have a feature where you design a template with a check list with radio buttons

Overall: save time

by Nagarsoft on July 11, 2017

Thanks so much for your feedback, Adel. I'm happy to hear that PhraseExpander is saving you a lot of time. We are fixing the file format issue you mentioned (that happens in very rare conditions) in the upcoming v.5 Regarding the suggestions window popup, you have the option to set it to open below or above, so it will not interfere with your other applications. And we are working on the autolearning feature as well. Regarding templates, you can actually design templates with radio lists, grids and checked buttons (this is available in the Professional edition). Once you build up your library, it can be hard to find the phrase that you want. That's why we have Quick Find. Press ALT+space to pull that up. From there you can search for the contents of any phrase you have in your library.

Pros: Flexibility. Having multiple options for forms, choice options, custom phrases, on-the-spot corrections and updates... This list of the options that I like "the most" is innumerable. This application is essential to capturing correct and complete data every time I sit down to record provider documentation. The icing on the cake is that the PhraseExpander developers truly want and listen to their client's feedback and desires. New functionality is coming based upon this constructive feedback and the commitment to creating an outstanding application!

Cons: Although the base functionality is simple to learn, there are a few nuances that have taken a few weeks to adapt and adopt into my workflows.

Overall: Efficient Time Management. I have the ability to use and customize phrases, paragraphs, and forms in a fraction of the time it would take to type out responses every single time I am recording my documentation. My documentation is more comprehensive since I am using my custom prompts so I don't leave out key points, but I also use the application for the mundane entries, like my business addresses, passwords, and ID numbers. Total game changer!

Love it. Easy to use.

Pros: I've tested all of the text replacement programs I could find for PC. A couple of them I used very extensively, and got very proficient in programming macros with them, but I reached the limit of what they could do, and needed a better option. PhraseExpander gives me features that no other program has. For example, no other program has 3-state buttons, or answers "yes", "no" and "n/a", letting me create custom wording for each of the situations. I can create long medical notes that look just like they would if I had typed or dictated them with few clicks. This way I can see patients without the distraction of typing excessively, or having to cut their time short so I can go dictate a note before seeing my next patient.

Another feature that is extremely useful is being able to edit the "canned" responses I prepared from the form, not having to go into the program again.

Another thing I like is the preview boxes, that concatenate my answers in real time, and I can click in the text and edit it at any time, without having to execute the whole macro. This is a huge feature that no other program I tested had.

My favorite is the grid forms, that let me write notes for very specific scenarios that were a nightmare to template for with other software, but with the grid form, it's easy to program the macro and to use it.

Remembering macros was hard with other programs and since I have over 1000 macros to choose from that's nearly impossible. PE has auto-complete. EASY!

Cons: I'm told version 5 will help with building gender-specific forms, and more "logic" features to program macros that are more advanced. I'll welcome those changes.

Comments: PhraseExpander has helped our Rehab team to improve the overall efficiency of our documentation, while also making it easier to maintain compliance when requirements change. We are able to make quick changes to the phrase templates as needed, allowing for easy customization without the need to go through our IS Department.

In use, it just takes a few clicks for a therapist to enter what they did and the patient's response to the treatment. This has saved therapists a significant amount of time while also improving the content of our documentation.

You wouldn't be able to convince our therapists to go back to documenting without PhraseExpander. The other great thing about the software is that it can be used alongside any electronic medical record (EMR), so we don't need to worry about what software our organization may change to in the future. Our phrases will always be accessible.

The price is worth it in time saved though and version 5.0 will make the note templates very easy to create making this a easier to use very good template software rivaling that of some of the big EMRs (without the need for IT and multiple committees).

Overall: As a physician, I type the same thing over and over again in multiple notes. It was very easy to program and create my own note templates using PhraseExpander and save a ton of time letting me use my own personalized templates. It lets me bypass IT and multiple committees and gives me the ability to create all my own personalized templates with ease, saving me lots of time typing.

Comments: I have used PhraseExpander for just over a year and love how quickly I can access my 3MinuteClinic medical templates in ANY EMR! With a simple dot-phrase, I can access templates for HPIs, care plans, patient summaries, and web links; and I 've only begun to scratch the surface of Phrase Expander's capabilities. Thanks to the Nagarsoft team, I can rapidly complete clinic notes so I can spend more time with my patients. My only complaint is that it's not currently available on the Mac platform. Overall, this app is a MUST HAVE if you want to significantly increase your productivity. I can't imagine running my clinic without it.

Very useful and a real timesaver

Pros: Easy to use
Feature vs costs
Time saver
Many boring tasks are simoplified

Cons: Sometimes creating macro's is difficult (if you are not used to it)

Overall: The software really helps to speed up work. We use the software to assemble emails, forms and Word documents and this process has really improved when we started using PhraseExpander. Some workflows (that needed to be done en couple of times every day) used to take about 5-10 minutes where now it is done in 1-2 minutes with the help of PhraseExpander. We also use it extensively for correcting spelling in all our software applications and online this feature also is a real time saver. Instead of maintaining spelling corrections in Word, Google, etc. we now have it centralised.

Recommendations to other buyers: Would be nice to have grammar checking, automatic learning and sometimes les steps in executing (for instance spelling correction are several steps that could be more simplified). But these are no deal breakers for us.

Couldn't live without it!!

Pros: Excellent and keeps getting better

Cons: Learning curve but very well worth any minute spent getting to the advanced level

Overall: This program makes the difference between a professional healthcare note and one that is lacking. It takes the agony out of writing excellent notes and allows us doctors to focus on the patient as much as possible. Truly one of a kind, as I've tried other "look alike" programs and this one is in a different league all together. The program feels like it was made just for us and anticipates what we need as far as features and ease of use. Technical support is unbelievably good and responsive. You feel like your business is truly important to the company, and I believe this product will just keep getting better!

Recommendations to other buyers: Reach out to tech support if you want to get into the advanced features (the more deeply you delve into the program the better, it will amaze). I've never waited more than a couple hours for a personalized and effective response.

Amazing software for doctors that write notes all day

Pros: ease of use, depth of options and ability to modify templates.

Cons: unable to do algorithmic templates. (ie. if this box in a list is clicked then do this series of functions and text)

Overall: This program has changed every aspect of my daily clinical workflow for the better. The customer support is unparalleled and the frequency and value of the updates are the envy of any other program. I cannot recommend this program enough. The depth of options continue to impress me and I continually find new ways to tweak my charting each day.

Recommendations to other buyers: Your daily flow will be improved in every way by this program.

PhraseExpander: Speed, consistency, reliability, ease-of-use; it has it ALL!

Pros: Ease of use. Having to train hundreds of providers, nurses, and support staff on yet another product is never a treat... until PhraseExpander. I was able to teach my organization quickly and effiently.

Power. Think outside the box. I set up phrases for ICD-10 codes, provider names, and commonly prescribed medications.

Cons: Nothing yet.

Overall: Hundreds of uses! Working in a healthcare facility we not only use PhraseExpander for the obvious stuff (templates for visit notes, standardized forms, etc.), but we also use it for searching through 70k+ ICD-10 codes to quickly help staff order labs and document in their notes tremendously faster. Imagine quickly searching through thousands of codes with lightning speed and with a keystroke entering that code into an order field. PhraseExpander has proven to be a huge asset to my organziation and we look forward to continuing to use it for years to come.

Recommendations to other buyers: Think outside the box. Not only does this softare finish your phrases, but can you used to search lists quite easily by pressing Alt + spacebar.
