    Dr. Doina Sitaru, Family physician
  • I have been using Dilato from the start. I regularly add templates, so that nothing is missing in my questionnaires and exams. This can seem automatic, but my records are thorough. A tool I cannot do without. With the exponential amount of medical knowledge nowadays, it's expected physicians know everything perfectly. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. Dilato can help close this gap, if we put some energy into adapting templates to our needs. We can also share templates with friends.

It's fast to get started, so you save time right away. The process of creating templates is easy. I love their dropdowns and boxes I can check. My EMR also has templates but I prefer to use Dilato, because it's simpler to build templates and I can insert dot phrases in any fields in the EMR.

Dr. Charles Tanguay
Many physicians spend hours charting every day. I’ve been there, I know what they feel. EMR documentation has become a leading cause of burnout. That’s why I built Dilato — to help you complete your notes on time. You will save 5 hours every week, which you can spend the way you want it. I’d love for you to give it a try.
