Here is a full transcription of the video:
I was on a PC based EHR that was hardwired in the room and it was really even though it was state-of-the-art 15 years ago, obviously things change and things become outdated very, very quickly. It was very, very frustrating sometimes to take so long to fill screens and to basically move through the patients. And so very, very slow. It would not be unusual for me to finish in my office and then come home and work for charts for three and a half to four hours to complete them.
And in doing so, that pretty much destroyed my family life. And I told my wife I was a prisoner of my own practice. We’re so happy to be on board with Modernizing Medicine. We have never looked back obviously, and it was not even a difficult choice when we saw the efficiencies that were built into the EMR with Modernizing Medicine even though I was tied to a lease. In fact, I still have two years left on the lease and I’m paying almost twenty-five hundred dollars per month in lease fees. So you have to kind count it as the cost of doing business. So that’s what we did.
Our profitability in our practice has only increased, and more importantly, my family time has been restored. I still enjoy the fact that my work, which is very, very enjoyable, doesn’t take over my life. And I don’t find myself missing things that I should be able to attend to as a part of the family because of my work.
