From a cardiac physician’s perspective, the encounter form is the most important part of a cardiology electronic medical records system. For fast and effective documentation, our EMR allows for all information to be displayed in a structured format on one screen, the patient encounter form.

This form automatically collects and exhibits all key aspects of patient care from other sections of the chart and efficiently summarizes the outcome. It not only allows documenting clinical observations and findings but also provides the ability to add specialized procedures, orders and prescriptions right from there. This eliminates the need to switch windows or move back and forth to other parts of the EMR system which can be a daunting and time-consuming task. Such an encounter form bridges the gap between paper and electronic media for physicians and clinical staff who might be fearful that an EMR system would radically change the way they practice.
