Using a pen to control the cursor within electronic medical record software is fast and easy. Your eye guides your hand and pen to the precise point on the screen where you want to go. The electronic pen is a much more natural and intuitive method to operate your software than a mouse or a track pad. The technologies inside Wacom pens are advanced, but the use is as natural as writing with a pen on paper.
Wacom pen displays, when combined with software that adds drawing capabilities to your electronic medical record system, allows doctors a natural way to draw diagrams, make handwritten notes, and annotate directly into the patient record.
Drawing and writing with the pen directly on the Wacom screen is like drawing on a traditional paper chart. Updates are quick and efficient. Since the information is all digital, doctors can be consulted remotely to offer their expert advice by viewing the digital records. Electronic medical records can also be sent directly to pharmacies for quick filling of prescriptions. An electronic medical record system combined with a Wacom pen display offers better patient satisfaction, greater use of doctor's time, and overall higher quality of care.
