There is a lot of stuff I found on google about your problem. Here are the results of one search:

You should note that some of the articles listed here discuss how to get physicians on board with an EMR and I liked some of these:

Lesson 12: Dictation is an effective way of bringing nontypers into the EMR fold. Although few physicians lack the computer skills to use a modern EMR, some cannot type quickly enough to efficiently document patient care, so we use an outside dictation service that interfaces with our EMR. Currently, about one-third of our outpatient documentation is generated by dictation rather than direct note entry. Although dictation increases costs and slows the availability of documentation, it ensures that physicians do not seize upon a lack of typing skills as an excuse for nonparticipation.

They need to get someone to input the information for you. Period.
