Pen functionality in EMR notes

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.

Re: Pen functionality in EMR notes

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.

GREAT suggestion!
