Our Surgeons would love to see a pen functionality in EMR notes. They love writing with their pens on the tablets and if we could get that in EMR notes it would be incredible.
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS to this! There is a reason "a picture is worth a thousand words."
I was working this morning on a request from my doctor to convert a paper Neurosensory template into an EMR note template that, frankly, becomes more complicated and cumbersome when I have to convert "circle the pain site/best option" pictures and tables... into a strictly verbal representation. It loses clarity and brevity, and is now FAR less user-friendly. Not to mention, it is harder for the patient and referring doctors to understand than this old-fashioned paper copy, if and when they request the patient records.
Even if it would allow for a PDF or image to be in the background, that the doctor could then circle or mark, that would streamline a LOT of our EMR notes.
