Now on the iPhone!

Mobile Midwife EHR is now fully functional on all iPhones. It is custom designed to take advantage of the entire space available on each of these phones specifically. Now if a client presses on your client portal link from an iPhone they will be directed to fill out your forms and sign all your documents from the Mobile Midwife EHR app!

Client List

Below is the login and home screen of Mobile Midwife EHR. You can login to your practice from ANY iPad, iPhone or Mac. The first time you login you must have a Wi-Fi connection. Thereafter no Wi-Fi connection is needed to use the app.

From here you can see all of your clients. Pregnant and postpartum clients are under the Pregnant and Postpartum tabs. Lactation clients are under the Lactation tab and Primary Care, Chiropractic or Preconceptional clients are under the Primary Care tab.

Click here for a legend of what the different labels mean on the client profile pic.

Client Sign up

A client will be able to visit the client portal from any device to create their client record and sign your consent forms. Alternatively you create the record yourself and even hand them your device. Tap the "Add Client" button to see the welcome screen to the right. Tap the lock button to keep the patient from exiting their record and view other patient data.

Once the client taps the Start Here button they will be asked to take a picture of themselves.

Basic Information

After the client takes their picture they will fill out their basic information as seen in this picture (Click the picture to enlarge it). Once they are done they tap the "Next Step" button.

Current Pregnancy

Now the client will fill out information about their current pregnancy and their gynecological history.

Note, when adding a new client the toolbar will show "Step 1 of 5", "Step 2 of 5" and so on. As the client fills out the forms they will press the "Next Step" button at the bottom of each screen until they finish signing all of your consent forms at the end of the process.

Past Pregnancies

This is where past pregnancies are entered. The client's GTPAL that is shown elsewhere is derived from this information.

Health History

Here the client will fill out their family and personal health history, medications, allergies, surgeries, life style details and Gyn history. Keep in mind you can request the Mobile Midwife EHR support team to add or remove any fields you like. We can change almost anything on any form within minutes and have the change automatically pushed to your devices.

Gynecological History

This is the rest of the Health form. Note, the Mobile Midwife forms are very interactive and there are many fields you do not see that only appear when other selections are made.


Now the client will be presented with a confirmation page where they will review all the information they entered and sign.

After signed, a copy of this summary page with the client's signature will be saved as a PDF and attached to this client record.

Document Signing

This is the last step of the sign up process. With this feature your practice can finally go totally paperless! The patient will write their signature on your documents on the iPad itself using their finger or a stylus.

You can import any PDF you like into Mobile Midwife EHR as a template. You then drop check boxes, text boxes, signature and initial boxes in all applicable areas on the PDF document. Then anytime you create a new client, an instance of these documents will show up under their Documents tab as ready to sign.

Document Templates

With Mobile Midwife you can go totally paperless because your clients are directed to sign all of your consent forms during the sign up process! Mobile Midwife comes with eight generic consent forms. However you can import any document of your own choosing and make it interactive with check boxes, text boxes and signature boxes.

There are many ways to import a document. Most users however email the PDF to themselves and then open that email on their iPad. Then press & hold on the attachment and chose to open it in Mobile Midwife. Then press "Add Document" on the toolbar from within the Documents tab and touch the name of the file that was just exported to Mobile Midwife.

Creating a Template

Once a document is imported you can began dropping text boxes, check boxes and signature boxes anywhere to make the document interactive. Set the document to be a "Standard Document" and place it in the "Pregnant Client" category to have it automatically be added to each new client record during the sign up process.

From the Prenatals tab you can record prenatal visits. This includes inputting their vitals, measurements, lab work, internal exam info, physical exam, comments and more.

Note : Tapping the Show Details button will show all of the details for each prenatal visit instead of just the basic vitals.

Adding a Prenatal

When adding a prenatal you can choose to chart with SOAP or without SOAP.

Prenatal - Subject & Objective

If "Yes" is pressed in the "had pregnancy symptoms" field then additional fields will appear so you can capture which symptoms the client experienced.

Note, when viewing the Prenatal later in "show details" mode or printing, only fields that have been answered will appear. This makes your charting easier to read and more professional looking.

In SOAP charting the "Subjective" section is where you gather feedback from the patient. The "Objective" section is where you gather your own information by capturing vitals and performing exams and so on. The "Assessment" section is where you document your diagnoses and the "Plan" section is where you document your prognoses or plan of care.

Prenatal - Physical exam & CPT codes

In this screen you can see part of the physical exam section that appears when "Yes" is pressed for the "had physical exam" field. Many fields are not shown in the screenshots such as the internal exam and urine test sections.

Notice the popup in the second screen shot that lists the ICD10 codes. This appears when the "diagnosis codes" button is selected. You can navigate to a specific ICD10 code by drilling down through the correct categories, or by typing any text in the search box such as "edema" or "mastitis".

Prenatal - Diagnoses Codes

This screenshot shows what happens when a search is performed in the diagnoses code popup. The second screenshot shows how the diagnoses codes are captured in the Prenatal Visit form after various diagnoses codes are chosen from the popup.

Prenatal CPT Codes

This screenshot show the Procedure Code popup that displays ALL the CPT codes and works in the same way as the diagnoses codes popup.

Prenatal Reminders

Pressing the reminder icon will cause the reminders to display. This features is different from the tasks feature because it is a static list that is the same for every client. This static list is configurable under the Settings->Reminders tab.

If a prenatal or postpartum visit is being edited and a reminder item is checked off then that reminder item will be recorded under that visit. As a reminder item is tapped multiple times it will cycle through 4 different status. They are Performed, Discussed, Declined and N/A.

Appointment scheduling

Mobile Midwife will integrate with any calendar you have by letting you view upcoming appointments and schedule new appointments. Integration is seamless whether you have Google, Yahoo or something more sophisticated like Acuity or Setmore that provides online booking and appointment reminders. Many practices will have different calendars for client appointments, staff meetings, consults, room bookings and conferences.

You can add all of your calendars by going to the iPad settings app and then to Calendar->Accounts->Add Account. Then open the Calendar app on your device to ensure they all show up properly. If everything appears in order then go to Mobile Midwife and press the calendar icon on the toolbar while under the prenatals, visits or postpartum section of a client record. You will be able to see all your upcoming appointments and schedule new ones by pressing the plus button. Mobile Midwife will populate the appointment with the client contact information, EDD and other important information.

Contacts Integration

Press the phone icon to add a client to your iCloud, Google, Yahoo or Hotmail contact list. Mobile Midwife populates the contact record with the client's photo, phone numbers, EDD, email, address, partner name and more!

Choose "Map Client" and their home address will be located using Google maps.

Lab Results

Recording lab results is easy and flexible especially now that we integrate with Quest Diagnostics, LabCorp, CPL, BioReference, Interpath, RML and more! Abnormal results will automatically show up under the Client Core Information that appears at the top of most screens.

The screenshot on the right shows all of the various results that can be entered. The "other lab results" section can be used to record any lab result. The attached documents section can be used to attach the actual lab results documents. Any PDF can be imported into Mobile Midwife and attached to a client record.

If you would like your Mobile Midwife account to integrate with your lab company then contact your lab representative and request integration with your Mobile Midwife account. Lab integration can save you many hours a week and can improve the integrity of your charting by reducing human error. Never get caught again during a hospital transfer without knowing where your labs are. With Mobile Midwife lab integration, your lab results will automatically and seemlessly flow into your account under the appropriate client record. An email will be sent to you when new lab results are received so you can know to login and and view that client's record.

Labor - Admissions

The Admissions tab is the first tab under the Labor & Delivery section of Mobile Midwife. This tab is used to chart admissions and discharging of clients. It is also used to measure the length of labor which is displayed in the birth summary tab.

Labor Flow

After admitting the mom under the Admissions tab you can tap on the Labor tab and begin charting their labor.

Adding a Labor Flow entry

To add a new labor flow entry, press the "add labor flow" button on the toolbar. The Labor Flow form shown in this screenshot completely changes based on what "labor status" option is selected. The screenshots here show what the form looks like for the "active" and "delivered" status options. There are five different status options that can be chosen which include "1st Stage - Early", "1st Stage - Active", "Membranes Rup.", "2nd Stage" and "Delivered".

Newborn details & newborn exam

Once baby is born the newborn tab is used to enter APGARS and details such as their name, gender, measurements, medications administered and their feeding status.

Also on this screen is where the newborn exam is documented. There is a brief NBE and an extended NBE. In this screenshot the first part of the extended NBE is shown. The next screenshot below shows the rest of the exam.

Newborn exam continued

This screenshot shows the rest of the newborn exam. This NBE is also available under the infant postpartum visits form.

Immediate Postpartum

Once baby is born and APGARS charted in the Newborn tab the IPP tab will be used to chart the remaining birth events. When adding a Mother Immediate Postpartum record one of the following status will be selected which will drive what the rest of the form looks like: 3rd Stage, Placenta Delivered, 4th Stage, Laceration Details and Discharge.

Birth Summary

This is the tab that brings together all of the key points of the birth. Everything on this screen including the labor duration summary section is automatically populated for you based on all the previous entries made in the Admissions, Labor, Newborn and IPP tabs.

Postpartum Tab

As we move on to the postpartum section we first want to step back and show the labor flow timers that appear in the Labor tab during labor. These timers keep track of the last time mom's and baby's vitals were taken and how long mom's membranes have been ruptured.

Adding Maternal Postpartum Visit

The postpartum visit form operates in much the same way as the prenatal visit form does. You can choose to chart using the SOAP methodology or keep things short and sweet.

The visit location field allows you to choose from Home, Birth Center, Office, Hospital, Phone, Email, Text or Other.

For more information on how the diagnoses and procedure codes and completed reminders work please read about the Prenatals feature above.

Printing, Faxing and Emailing Client Records

Located at the top of every screen on the toolbar is a button that has a box with an arrow coming out of it. This button allows you to export data from the client record to an email, printer or password protected PDF by pressing the Email, Print and Open In buttons respectively as shown in the screenshot.

Exporting data

After the Email, Print or Open In button is selected from the above screenshot this other screenshot titled "Export Data" will appear. This is a powerful little form that allows any part of the client record to be exported. Any combination of categories can be exported. You can choose to export no documents here but then later go to the Documents tab and open whichever documents you want to print and print them from there.

Note, it is not against HIPAA policy to email client records, however they encourage practitioners to password protect private health information whenever reasonably possible. So, if you are emailing or exporting this client data as a PDF then enter a password in the "password protect PDF" field and then contact the intended recipient in a separate email or text and provide them the password.

Professional Print Out

This screenshot shows how professional your exported client record will look. It includes a page header and footer and well formated body content that Mobile Midwife arranges specially just for printing. The header includes your practice name, patient name, EDD or delivery date, client record number (although not shown in this screenshot), and page number.

Note, any comments you place in [brackets] will not be included in these exports. Take advantage of this feature when typing comments that are too personal to share with other doctors for consults or transfers.

View sample export here!

Import Documents Feature

Any PDF or image can be imported into Mobile Midwife under the Templates tab or under a client's Document tab. In the case of Templates, this means you can create your own consent forms and drop text boxes, check boxes and signature boxes on them so that your clients can sign them. Importing a document into the Documents tab is very useful for importing labs, ultrasounds, charts from another care provider and so on. Pictures can also be imported from the camera roll or be taken directly from the Mobile Midwife app.

There are many ways to import a document. A PDF can be dropped on the Mobile Midwife app from iTunes or Dropbox can be used. Most users however email the PDF to themselves and then open that email on their iPad. Then press & hold on the attachment and chose to open it in Mobile Midwife. Then press "Add Document" on the toolbar from within the Documents or Templates tab and touch the name of the file that was just exported to Mobile Midwife.

Attach document to prenatal visit, postpartum visit, lab or ultrasound

On nearly every from in Mobile Midwife is an "attach documents" field. Pressing Yes on this field will cause an "Add document" button to be displayed. Pressing that button will cause a popup to appear with options to "Take Photo" or "Select Document or Photo" which then allows you to select a document or photo that is already attached in the client's Document folder.

Tasks Feature

Want to be sure you don't forget to draw labs at your next appointment, or to speak with your client about an important issue at the next visit? The new Tasks feature can give you peace of mind by helping you never forget important tasks.

Adding a Task

With the tasks features you can create a task and assign it to yourself or a staff member. You can choose to have it displayed in the Core Client Information box and also have it popup whenever you open the client record or even a specific tab such as the prenatal tab. The task will follow a workflow such as New, In Progress, Waiting for Sign Off and Completed. That task can have a due date or be open ended. All outstanding tasks can be view at the client level or practice level for ALL clients.


Notes are like tasks without a due date or workflow. Notes are great for placing important bits of information such as who the client's doula or IBCLC is, or what birth preferences they may have such as "Dad must cut cord". The "show as popup in" field can be set to IPP, if you want the note to popup when you open the IPP tab. Notes can also be used for logging text messages, emails or phone conversations.

Client Billing

The billing tab tracks charges and payments or adjustments to charges specifically.

Client Invoicing

Generate a professional invoice.

View all client balances and tasks

The practice-level Billing tab shows all clients with a balance. Past due payments are highlighted in red.

The practice-level Tasks tab shows all outstanding tasks, who they are assigned to, status and more.

Insurance claims

Create and submit insurance claims to insurance companies either electronically or by paper.

Mobile Midwife will generate both professional and institutional claims and print or electronically submit them. Easily copy billing codes from a visit record and print and mail the claim for reimbursement.

Mobile Midwife prints onto they industry standard CMS-1500 or UB-04 paper that can be ordered from anywhere. Place it in the mail and wait for the checks to come back from the insurance company. Record payments, appeals and denials in Mobile Midwife and keep track of insurance balances.

Medications & Allergies

The medications tab is used to keep track of a client's medications. After a client enters their medications and allergies in the Client Info->Health tab, they automatically get copied to this screen. Medications can be managed in great detail here as each record has a detailed comments section, discontinued on, prescribed on, prescribed by, dosage details field and more. A clients active medications and allergies are also listed in the "Core Client Information" box.

Problem management

With so many areas on the client intake forms that a client can indicate a problem, it would be hard to constantly refer back to all those forms to find out what gyn, health or pregnancy problems your client reported having. The Problems tab is a centralized location where all client problems/issues are managed by the Midwife. After the client fills out their initial intake forms under the "Client Info" tab, all of their problems from the various sections are copied to this Problems tab. Thereafter any new problems that arise or any existing problems that change or become resolved will be updated here by the Midwife. Also, if the client comes back in the office even an year later and adds some new problems under the Client Info section, then those new problems will also get copied here.

Just like with Medications, Problems are also listed in the "Core Client Information" box.

Charting Ultrasounds

The Ultrasounds tab operates much in the same way as the Labs tab. Fields are provided for the most important fields and the Ultrasound can be attached to the record so you can reference all the results by simply tapping on the thumbnail(s).

Customizing Reminders

The reminders feature described earlier can be customized here in the Settings->Prenatal Reminders tab.

Managing Users

All Mobile Midwife plans come with at least 3 user accounts. This is because we encourage Midwives to use separate accounts for their students and assistants. Doing so makes it easier to track who charted which records. Users can be added, edited or inactivated using this tab. Passwords can be changed and privileges can be modified also.

Account settings

Account settings are modified here. The default calendar can be set, and many other options can be modified to change how the forms look and what fields appear. Mobile Midwife can even be configured to support Male clients, if you practice also happens to offer primary care services.

Data security and synchronization

Mobile Midwife automatically synchronizes your data with the Mobile Midwife cloud and other Apple devices in your practice every five minutes when a Wi-Fi connection is available. This feature also serves as a data backup service. If your device is lost, stolen or falls in a birth tub without a waterproof case then you can easily login from any other iPad. You can even borrow your client's iPad if they have one, download the free Mobile Midwife app from the appstore and login to your practice.

Lactation Client Feature

Choosing "Add Lactation Client" will present you with a whole different set of forms and features made just for clients you provide lactation consultation services to. If a client is already in Mobile Midwife as a Postpartum client then it would be more advantageous to use our "Add Lactation Visit" feature under the Visits tab rather than create a completely new record for the client.

Health Information

Now the client will fill out information about their family and personal health history. Any medications, allergies or problems they add to this screen will get automatically populated to the Meds, Allergies and Problems sub tabs under the larger Visits tab. These forms in the Client Info tab are designed primarily for just the client to fill out.

Baby Information

Here the client will fill out information on their last pregnancy, labor & delivery and the baby.


Now they will be presented with a confirmation page where they will review all the information they entered and sign.

A copy of this signed summary is saved as a PDF so that even though you may modify information in these tabs later on, you can still reference the original summary with their signature.

Lactation Visit

From the Visits tab you can add, view or edit patient visits. You can press the show details button to see all the information on each visit. Notice the "Core Client Information" box at the top. This holds fields that are frequently needed and keeps you from having to go back to other areas of the app to find information you commonly need.

Add new visit

Pressing "add new visit" will display this form. This form not only helps you record your visit information but it also guides you through the process. First you obtain subjective information from mom, such as her chief concern, how she and baby have been doing and so forth. Further down in the Objective section there are also fields for performing a Maternal, Infant or Breastfeeding exam and more. Then below the Objective section is the Assessment and Plan sections where you provide your assessment and plan of care.

Lactation Visit - Objective Information

From this part of the form is where you can see the Objective, Assessment and Plan sections. Notice the Reminders popup that appears after the reminder icon on the toolbar is tapped. Any reminders you select from this list will be placed under the "completed reminders" field in the Plan section. So, if you provided the client with education on "Pumping methods" or "Nipple care" then you can select those items from the list.

Lactation Visit - Assessment

Notice here you can select from the entire list of ICD 10 diagnoses codes. You can search "Mast" to find all the CPT codes related to Mastitis and so forth. Once you select one or more codes they will appear under the "diagnoses codes" field of this visit just like reminders do.

Gynecological & Primary Care

The Visits tab supports Gynecological, Primary Care, Preconceptional and any other visit. Mobile Midwife can even be configured to support Male clients by setting "Include support for male clients" in the Settings->Account tab.

SOAP charting

The Visit form support SOAP charting and has a robust ROS (Review of Systems) and exams feature. The Subjective section also provides support for PMH (medical history) and the clients chief complaint.

Exams and CPT coding

Full support for ICD10 and CPT coding and a reminder system separate from the Prenatal or Lactation reminders is also available. The consent form document templates for Primary care clients are also separate from the Prenatal and Lactation clients.

Messaging & Chat

All emails and messages between you and your client are now all recorded under their record in a secure HIPAA compliant manner. Our new Chat feature replaces texting. Instant messages from clients will not wake you up in the middle of the night anymore if they are not in the third trimester.

Client Portal

On Thanksgiving Day 2013 we released the new Mobile Midwife EHR web-based client portal, accessible from any PC or Mac. Every practice has its own unique URL that new clients can go to and fill out their paper work prior to the first in-person visit. Once the client completes their paperwork from the comfort of their own home, their record will automatically appear on your iPad(s) and you will receive an email notification.
