Doctors can store notes online by using cloud note-taking applications such as OneNote, iCloud Notes and Evernote. The applications require doctors to sign up for Microsoft, Apple ID and Evernote accounts, respectively.
Microsoft offers three versions of its OneNote application: an online application that works on Internet browsers, a simplified standalone version downloaded from Windows Store, and the advanced version that comes as a part of the Office 365 bundle.While the first two options are free to use, the Office 365 version requires a monthly subscription. All three versions upload the notes to your location. As such, you can begin taking notes on either of the desktop applications and access the note on the browser version.
Apple provides a browser-compatible version of its Notes application at iCloud.com. Compared to OneNote, the application offers less features. Similarly to OneNote, the application synchronizes notes between the online and the desktop applications. The desktop version comes pre-installed in all Mac OS X systems.
Available for both Windows and Mac OS X computers, Evernote is an online note-taking application that offers both free and paid edition. The free edition allows clipping content from Web pages, sharing notes and synchronizing notes across devices. The application also works on mobile Web browsers. Some of the features offered in the paid editions are: turning notes into presentations, scanning business cards and saving emails to Evernote.
