Debate continues over electronic records, paper charts

Ophthalmologists around the country continue to struggle with the mandate to transition to electronic health records. While there is great opportunity for added efficiency in the future as the technology improves, the implementation of EHR into a practice can come at a significant cost. Unfortunately, there are significant penalties for not participating as well. This has led to the dilemma: Should I adopt EHR or not? This month, Dr. Dee Stephenson and Dr. David Goldman (EMA Ophthalmology Team Lead, Anterior Segment at Modernizing Medicine) discuss the advantages and disadvantages of EHR and paper charts.
