Going Paperless! My Journey Into the Realm of Electronic Health Records

I finally did it! I got new software that allows me to keep your records digitally so that I don’t have a bunch of paper files. The advantages are great but the learning curve is killing me. It is so much easier to hand write a few sentences, that only a few select people will probably ever decipher, and call it good. Now, however, I have detailed, thorough, professional notes in typewritten print that I can pull up with the click of a mouse.

So, the next time you come into my office and I am cleverly toting around my iPad and slowly trying to figure out how to input your concerns, taking more time than you or I am used to, just remember, when I get it all figured out, you will have pristine records… that no one will probably ever read.
