I have used PowerChart, Epic, Citrix, TDS and Meditech... and paper charting of course.
Of these, Meditech is THE WORST! (actually TDS was but thankfully the facility quickly changed over to EPIC after I arrived) The facility I am in is still using Meditech 5.3(something like that) and its inadequacies are so frustrating. We've been promised 6.0 for some time but the date keeps getting pushed back.
Among my complaints:
This DOS-based format is absurd
You have to close everything you're doing to look up something else
It's difficult to track past orders, therefore we still do half-half paper orders
It's impossible to view data trends
Have any of you worked with this particular EMR?
