Versaform kindly informs us their electronic medical records program, EMR Basic, is available for download. Their site looks like it has a few bugs in it, but we assume their software is more robust.
VersaForm Systems Corporation announced that its new Electronic Medical Records (EMR) program- VersaForm EMR Basic Edition- is available free to health care providers. With VersaForm EMR, clinicians can quickly create patient and visit records, track problems, medications and labs, and create progress notes. All aspects of a patient’s visit can be recorded electronically. VersaForm EMR can significantly reduce potential medical errors due to incomplete, illegible or lost handwritten records and charts. The program can be downloaded over the Internet from www.versaform.com.
…VersaForm EMR includes a set of pre-defined templates that address frequently seen conditions. Templates can be customized or created by any user to suit the practice, and can record all aspects of an encounter, including the billing.
VersaForm EMR also allows for existing paper records to be scanned into the system virtually eliminating the need for paper charts. VersaForm EMR runs on computers using Windows 2000 or XP and can be networked for multi-user environments.
Some of us are now working in a paperless emergency department, and can’t imagine going back to handwritten orders, transcribing lab values, bulky paper charts and manila folders (except when the systems goes down, once every few months, and we do just that).
