I'm so sorry to hear this. I can't believe they're being so draconian about their data entry. Did you ask them why it's not an option for you to enter data on paper and have someone else enter it into the EMR? Are they concerned about the cost? What about other practices in your area, are there offices where they don't use EMR, or they'd be willing to accomodate you?

xraymd, I know you're a wonderful person, and I'm sure you're a wonderful doctor. My mom is a doctor, and she has had to change jobs several times, sometimes just because the place she was working wasn't making enough money, sometimes for other reasons. I know it's really hard, but maybe it would even be better for you if you leave and work somewhere else. If they can't be flexible enough to work with you, if they're just saying "Our way" without even being open to your point of view, I frankly think you deserve to be treated much, much better than that.

My mom switched to a different office in the past year, and because of better accounting and billing at the new place, she has been able to stop working Saturdays (which she is pretty happy about, and me, too). The change was initially scary, but it worked out for the best. You are such a talented and skilled person, I am certain that you can find another place to work, and hopefully it will be one that will treat you as a valued employee, instead of some kind of interchangeable part. :-(
