An electronic medical record is an indispensable tool in the work of health professionals today because, in addition to being more practical than medical records made on paper, it is much safer. When choosing medical software, in addition to the electronic medical record, it is necessary to observe the other functionalities that it provides to the user.
If you are a health professional in the field of orthopedics, we will introduce you to some of the features of the Ninsaúde Apolo software that are most successful among professionals in this specialty. Ninsaúde Apolo is a management software for clinics that, in addition to the scheduling and attendance modules, also has other tools that facilitate the financial and administrative sector, billing of health plans, patient prospecting, among others.
Based on that, we put together a list of features of Ninsaúde Apolo that bring more advantages to orthopedists, check it out!
Multiclinical and multiprofessional agenda
Ninsaúde Apolo's agenda brings several features that add even more when including an appointment. If the clinic has more than one health professional, the secretary can view all appointments between professionals, or if you prefer, you can view all appointments for all professionals on a single screen.
If the clinic has more than one branch, it is also possible to separate these appointments per branch. Also, you will be able to define which users will be able to view or not the agenda of a specific branch so that secretaries and receptionists from different service locations are not confused with the appointments.
Other scheduling advantages available at Ninsaúde Apolo are the registration of the room and the events. When registering rooms in the system, at the moment the patient is scheduled, the secretary will be able to define in which room the service will be performed. The calendar events can be used as a reminder or to block specific dates so that no patient can be scheduled in that period.
The agenda of Ninsaúde Apolo is also multi-procedures, that is, in the same schedule, it is possible to insert more than one service. Besides, in addition to the schedule of professionals, there is the schedule of rooms, where through this tool, whenever scheduling a patient, the secretary can inform which room in the clinic will be attended.

Electronic medical record
With the electronic medical record of Ninsaúde Apolo, the health professional can type or even dictate the evolution of the patient while viewing his medical history. It is possible to insert up to four cards at the top of the screen so that you can quickly view information about the patient, such as health insurance, allergies, CIDs, charts, among others. You can learn more about this tool in our article "Care cards: quick information about your patient".
Within the medical record screen, the health professional also has access to the telemedicine tool, in addition to being able to perform several other actions, such as:
- Prescribe medications;
- Print recipes, certificates, exam requests, among other documents;
- Make comparisons between the patient's evolution based on graphs;
- Attach PDF files, images, or videos;
- Use forms for anamnesis, among others.
Custom forms to generate SCORE
With the Ninsaúde Apolo form templates, it is possible to create anamneses or forms for other purposes, so that they can be used in patient care. You can include questions that can be answered with a short text, long text, date, numbers, in addition to the multiple-choice questions and calculated field where you can perform automatic sums and with your results generate scores.
The Ninsaúde team makes available in the system some templates of ready-made forms that the professional can import into his access account. Some of the ready models available for the area of Orthopedics and Traumatology are Score Lysholm (knee symptoms), Carter-Rowe score (shoulder instability), and AOFAS score (smaller fingers, hallux, midfoot, hindfoot, and ankle). If necessary, you can change them by deleting or adding questions, or even by changing the ones that already exist.
The charts are very useful for professionals in Orthopedics and Traumatology, this is because some patients usually consult with a certain frequency, and when this happens, the health professional needs to make a comparison between their evolutions. It is from this comparison that the professional analyzes the results obtained through the treatment that is being carried out.
The information can be viewed in graphical mode (which can be a line or column) or in table mode. With the answers and their respective dates on which they were inserted, just make the comparison and include your notes in the patient's evolution.
When assisting their patients, health professionals who use Ninsaúde Apolo can post their receipts directly in the finance area of the software, which makes it possible to monitor the financial health of the clinic. This action can also be done by the secretary on the scheduling screen, which makes working at the reception even easier.
In the finance menu, it is possible to post not only receipts and payments for single titles but also installment and recurring titles.
Recurring titles are those that are repeated for a specified or indeterminate period, such as the telephone bill, internet, rent, etc.
With Ninsaúde Apolo it is also possible to perform the automatic calculation of the commissions of health professionals. Simply and quickly, the clinic manager has access to the values per professional and can post the payment directly in the system. The software also has Income Statment, Cash Flow, Bank reconciliation, among other financial tools that are being launched, such as the Service Invoice.

Email marketing is one of the main digital marketing strategies, and with Ninsaúde Apolo you can schedule emails that will be sent on a specific date or from an appointment. These emails can be sent as a reminder for the patient to return to the clinic a few months after their last appointment, for example. Another option is to use the tool to send birthday and Christmas messages.
The e-mail marketing functionality also allows you to send the patient's registration form a few days before your appointment so that he can fill out the registration form at home. It is also possible to schedule an email marketing containing a satisfaction survey so that it can be answered a few days after scheduling. It is even possible to create these surveys within the software, and they can be sent in three different ways.
