Forms PDF Improvements
So…it was an awkward conversation, but we finally sat down with our forms and broke the news to them that they needed to lose a few pounds. There were tears. There was denial. But in the end we convinced them that all of the extra padding, larger margins, and bigger fonts they were using lately […]

We've Improved Charting Sealants

Since Fred Flintstone first scratched an “X” on a limestone tablet when buying a cave, the signature has been an important part of our society. Actually, that is probably historically inaccurate. It might have been a granite tablet. Nevertheless, we all know that a handwritten signature has been the standard proof of identity and intent […]
