Hi xraymd,

This EMR sounds like a truly nasty system for detailed charting. Does it have sections where you can just type your impressions w/o having to search codes for tests or diagnoses ? If you are a fast typer, maybe you could record the zebras that are hard to look up or the extra details there. Also, would the system be compatible with a voice-recognition software that types dictations ? If you skip on the details like the others in the main application, maybe you could still somehow attach a file with your own detailed dictation for future reference.

Set (who wishes she could help)

PS. I know that this is a serous issue and you are not in a kidding mood, but if you would ever consider coming back to Quebec, there are many beautiful places there that are desperate for MDs (especially family docs and internists) and will do everything to make a newcomer feel welcome ;) On a more serious note, spending as much time on charting as you have been describing is excessive. I wish you best of luck with your future decisions whatever they will be if the situation does not improve.
