After a 10 year search, one doctor finds that ChartWare is the only choice

"I searched for an electronic medical record program, EMR and EHR for more than 10 years and found nothing suitable until I came across ChartWare's EMR. It is the only electronic medical record system I know of that can meet my needs as a busy primary care physician." So says Dr. David Chan, a busy health care provider in Nevada, who started using the ChartWare EMR five years ago.

"Knowing that I wanted the accuracy and efficiency that an electronic medical record, EMR could give me, I researched a whole range of EMR and EHR systems. Some EMR and EHR systems were good at this, some that. But none of the electronic medical record systems that I saw could do the entire job satisfactorily. Some clinical health care electronic medical record-keeping systems were too cumbersome, others had been written by programmers who didnít have the clinical experience of dealing with real life primary medical care." Dr. Chan took a 2 Ĺ day course at to learn ChartWareís EMR/EHR. In two or three weeks of practicing with ChartWare's electronic medical record system he reported being confident enough to use the Chartware electronic medical record, EMR/EHR during clinical encounters.

ChartWare's CEO Dr. David Tully-Smith agrees. With computerized electronic medical record-keeping, EMR and electronic health records, EHR the same health care providers who prescribe a drug can now order it directly using ChartWare's electronic medical record, EMR/EHR a computerized electronic medical record-keeping system. The health care provider no longer asks a medical assistant, who may not be familiar with the the drug, to try to read their writing and their personal abbreviations and call it in to a pharmacy. Even if there is no mistake with clinical data on paper medical records at the time, future problems often occur when the paper medical record cannot be found. When a medical provider using ChartWare's electronic medical record system, EMR/EHR prescribes a drug, it is automatically entered not just into the prescription medical record but also into a list of medications the patient is taking and the clinical treatment log too.

ChartWare and early entrant into the EMR and EHR market was an early adopter of the CCR and EHR concept, which allows a patient's electronic medical record, the EMR to be exported to create and encrypted and password protected EHR, viewable with a browser such as MS Internet Explorer. ChartWare pioneered and was the first electronic medical record, EMR company to introduce a fully compliant EMR and EHR solution.

Heralded as giving patients the opportunity for better treatment, this module puts patients in control of giving their medical history to anyone they choose.
