Alumni team crafts electronic medical record that cuts down paperwork and saves time

It’s the stuff of Star Trek: a doctor pulls out a tablet computer and begins to examine a patient. Instead of typing or writing, the physician touches the screen to record observations, make a diagnosis, consult a medical book, send a lab order, print a patient handout, and file a bill. Recordkeeping and paperwork that once took 10 minutes now take 60 seconds or less.

That science-fiction scenario is reality, thanks to a group of enterprising Yale School of Medicine alumni who have added computer coding and entrepreneurship to their skill sets.
