Paper Records vs. EHRs: The Final Showdown

You have to keep records on all of your patients if you want to be a doctor. That’s a given. But whether you use electronic health records (EHR) software or paper-based medical records is (and has always been) a huge decision that every practitioner has to make for themselves.

You already know what you have to do to securely store paper medical records and the pros and cons for both paper and electronic records systems according to doctors who use them.

Now, let’s pit paper against electronic medical records for one final showdown to see which one truly offers better functionality for users.

Round one: Time

The challenge: Doctors have a need for speed when it comes to locating records and taking notes.

The winner: EHRs.

The why: Electronic health records are, hands down, the faster option—once users learn their way around them. That important caveat has kept a lot of practices from making the switch because the process of learning an electronic system after using paper charts for so long is inevitably going to take a while, but practices that power through the transition are able to operate a lot more efficiently.
