Interviewed for an interesting job last week. The practice (a specialty group) does NOT use an EMR and still has giant, thick paper charts. I currently work in primary care with a fully-integrated EMR. The more I think about going back to paper charting, the more I think "eek!". Not being able to read other providers' handwriting. Not having the system do drug-drug and drug-condition interactions. Not being able to send Rxs electronically. Not getting lab results electronically. Not being able to easily print out instructions for the patient. Lost/missing/disappeared charts. Etc., etc. The more I think, the less appealing it is. Has anyone gone back to paper charting after using an EMR and if you did, what was your experience like?
