doctor walkingDr. Eric M. Reed (EMR) skipped out of clinic a few minutes early this afternoon, looking forward to an exciting evening of completing charting from the comfort of his own home.

“I work hard all day taking are of complicated patients, speaking with insurance companies, and returning urgent phone calls,” Dr. EMR explains. “It’s great to be able to come home, relax, kick my feet up, and spend another 4-5 hours in front of my computer clicking drop-down text boxes.”

Dr. EMR used to sloppily complete his paper charting at the office, and enjoy evenings with his friends and family. Now, thanks to electronic heath records, Dr. EMR is able to carefully craft the perfect notes for his colleagues to copy and paste.
