B: Specific Features of Electronic Medical Records

How does a doctor interact with an electronic medical record? I have had encounters with several over my time as a student and later as a trainee, in particular:

  • Medical Director (GP software)
  • MOSAIQ (Elekta's EMR)
  • ARIA (Varian's EMR)
  • CAS (an older text-based database)

I will attempt to discuss how individual areas can or should work.

i: New Patient Consult

ii: Requesting Treatment

iii: On-Treatment Review

iv: Treatment Summaries

v: Follow Up
