Abstract

We report the development and implementation of an electronic inpatient physician documentation system using off-the-shelf components, rapidly and at low cost. Within 9 months of deployment, over half of physician notes were electronic, and within 20 months, paper physician notes were eliminated. Our results suggest institutions can prioritize conversion to inpatient electronic physician documentation without waiting for development of sophisticated software packages or large capital investments.
