Chart Review

What a mess!

Cannot tell what is going on!  One has to dig to find data.  So we now round and see patients by opening Epic because we have to write note, and in the mean time also keep the institution's old medical record open to look up data.  All this defeat the purpose of an integrated electronic medical record.

Incidentally, ideally one should be able to use 2 screens; one where we document the visit, the other where we review the data on Epic.  Some hospital staff is doing exactly that, but they monopolized the screens and limit hardware access, thus even when all other computer terminals are occupied, these special terminals maybe not accessible to all.
