shannonFNP, BSN, MSN, RN 1 Article; 263 Posts Specializes in Pain Management, RN experience was in ER. Apr 19, 2011 We started using Meditech at my current job... the "windows" looking version (blue and pretty). It's much less user friendly than the texty, MS-DOS version. Before I could do my assessment in about 30-60 seconds. Y or N to the questions, tab takes you to the next page, etc. Then you have your area for notes. Now they want everything to be point and click and narrative less than 75 words and only when necessary. This new meditech doesn't let me tab over or use arrow keys. I have to take the time to click on each box which seems like a small problem, but it takes much more time to do my assessments. Plus it's SLOW. It takes FOREVER to pull up when you click on the icon. After I do an assessment, I have to give it about almost a minute before I can click on another intervention to chart on. It says something like "assessment has not completed processing." ARGH.It would be a good program if it weren't slow and if it let me do everything from the keyboard.
