Medical Communication

Doctors draw with Wacom pens to describe patient conditions


dth 2242medical in use 600 f

To provide the highest level of patient care possible, leading doctors prefer to ensure that the patient fully understands their condition, diagnosis, and recommended treatment plan. For years, doctors have relied upon drawing on the paper patient chart with a pen, to diagram the region of interest, show how symptoms are progressing, and to clarify how the patient will be treated. As the patient has questions, the doctor engages in a natural method of interaction until the patient fully understands their situation and options. This process of communication and education is effective and comfortable for both the patient and the doctor.

With the introduction of electronic medical records, operated with a keyboard and a mouse, many have felt that this visual method to communicate with patients was lost. This is not the case. By adding a Wacom pen display and software that provides drawing tools, doctors can again use a pen and digital ink to visually describe medical conditions and procedures with drawings and handwritten notes.

Drawing and writing with the pen directly on the Wacom screen is like drawing on a traditional paper chart. Updates are quick and efficient. Consultation sessions are dynamic and interactive.

An electronic medical record system combined with a Wacom pen display offers greater patient understanding, efficient use of doctor’s time, and overall higher quality of care.
