Anybody using this suite or other PalmOS Rx/CPRS solution?

I would be interested in a review from a user of this or another Rx program. Personally, I find the PalmOS screen to be far too small to do any practical charting/pt management and long for the days of the Newton OMP & 110. So far all of the "solutions" that I have seen have been more tech for tech's sake, less about making my job easier.

With this solution, I still have to write the Rx in the chart so it doesn't save me a step. What I would like is a handheld system that lets me do the H&P, record it, write the tests[ lab, x-ray, sono...], write the Rx, write the RTC timeframe and send the patient on their way to schedule the next appt, lab and pharmacy where the techs already know the patient is coming have what needs to be done. I've seen and used the VA's VISTA system and this is great except that it requires Linux [server] and Windows [client] and isn't handheld.

Anyway, I'd like an independent review of this or any other electronic prescribing system.
