Hello, electronic medical records; farewell paper charts!
I have been using an electronic medical records system in my psychiatric
practice for more than three years. I have also been using an electronic
prescription program. Both are indispensible and cost-effective. Records can
be retrieved from any computer with an Internet connection. Moreover, the
initial cost of the programs is very doable.
Both systems have proven to be a robust and effective method of practicing
in a busy psychiatric office.
