Very well stated. For those of us that have switched to EMR, we find the industry not just to be inadequate, but generally obsolete. The programs are not updated to be compatable with the updates of standard operating systems ( like Windows 7). My EMR lost its cursor with the last update (try keeping track of where you are w/o a cursor!) and we are told it is not fixable until the next update comes out (at least 6 months away). Part of the issue is that the programs are very expensive and therefore difficult to change without a very great loss of money. Since the government did not require the EMR companies to comply, only the dactors, we are stuck.
