A U G U S T 2 0 1 8 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y. N E T • 8 1 E lectronic medical records get a bad rap, don't they? Perhaps you're one of the naysayers who'd rather write with a pen than click with a mouse, assumes launching an EMR is more complicated than getting a rocket into orbit and believes staff who chart electronically spend more time staring at screens than caring for patients. The facility lead- ers we spoke to who recently went paperless debunked those com- mon complaints and say newer EMRs are easy to set up, easy to use and easily one of the keys to more efficient patient care. Mike Morsch | Associate Editor Have You Tried EMRs Lately? Going paperless isn't as painful as you might think. No, really. • EASY READ EMRs let staff and surgeon access clinical data without having to constantly duplicate previous documentations. Pamela Bevelhymer, RN, BSN, CNOR
