Topic: "Using a Laptop Computer to Collect Information During Patient Interviews in the Office, at the Bedside, and in the Emergency Room"
About the Event
Peter Kaufman, M.D., will present his method for using computerized patient records in gastroenterology. Similar methods can be applied for creating databases for technical documentation and working with documentation teams. Writers can apply this technique to getting information from recalcitrant engineers and others. Enter information into a database, then extract and manipulate the information for documentation and other reports.

- Quality of Care—improved record keeping, prompted questions, expert systems, allergy and problem lists, drug interactions, etc.
- Patient Education—automated handouts
- Legibility—improved documentation and decreased time reading other's notes
- Cost—eliminates transcription, improved coding with automated billing entry
- Research—database format allows rapid searching and recall of all aspects of the medical record; also allows protocol triggering and can prompt for Rx
- Specific—Remote Use
- Printer availability
- Formats for printing on charts
- Data transfer between remote and office computers
- Specific—Data Entry
- Typing—Most MDs don't/won't type
- Pick Lists—Require attention
- Voice Recognition—Slow
What to Look For
- Intuitive use
- User modifiable
- Data integrity
- Integrated features
