To login to the Fisdap Mobile App, use the username and password from your Fisdap account.
The Fisdap Mobile App allows instructors to complete the following tasks on their Android or iOS device:
- See students associated shift data with saved patient information and attachments
- Complete Preceptor Sign Off on a student's shift or patient (Your ability to complete Preceptor Sign Off depends on your program settings)
- Add Quick Shifts for students
- Add attachments with notes to a student's shift
Once you have logged in and downloaded your shift details, you can assist your student with entering patient data and save attachments locally while you are offline. Once you are connected to WiFi or cellular data, your changes will be saved to your account.
Note: You can only use the Signature option to complete the Preceptor Sign Off while you are offline.
When you are offline, you will see one of two notes:
- No Internet Connection. No new items to sync.
This note indicates that you do not have any information to sync and you can start documenting a shift.
- No Internet Connection. New items to sync.
This note indicates that you have started to document the shift and clicked save, but need to sync once you have an Internet connection.
Once you have a connection, click the sync icon to save your information. Once you see the "Sync Completed" message, click OK. The shift is now saved and can be edited if needed.
If your program gives you permission to add shifts to student accounts, you will see the plus icon under the student's Shift List. Click the plus and choose Lab Shift, Clinical Shift, or Field Shift. Follow the steps, adding the correct Shift Site, Base/Department, Date, Start Time, and Duration of the shift. Click Save or Cancel at the top of the screen.
You can see where a shift is located on the Map feature. To see where a shift is located, select the shift and click on the Map icon .
To upload a document to a student's shift, click the plus icon next to Attachments. You will have the option to add an attachment from your gallery, using a picture saved on your phone/tablet, or to take a new picture using your camera. If you are a first-time user, you will need to all the Fisdap Mobile App to access your camera. You can name the attachment, select a category, and add notes. Avoid including patient information that could violate HIPPAA.
Depending on your school's Program Setting, the preceptor can signoff on a student's shift or patient using a unique Fisdap username and password or an electronic signature. The Preceptor Signoff page includes a Shift Summary, an evaluation for the preceptor and/or student to complete, a Plan of Action, and the Evaluator Signoff box.
In the Evaluator Signoff box, preceptors also have the option to lock the shift or specific patient, which will prevent the student from making any changes to the shift data that the preceptor has already reviewed.
