Digital Docs

Digital Docs: "Dr. Jim Little enters a patient's exam room at Family Physicians Group clinic in west Vancouver and instead of flipping open a paper chart, swings a computer screen and keyboard away from the wall.
With a few key strokes, Little pulls up the patient's electronic medical record, which gives him information from prior clinic visits, lab test results, notes on treatment and medications ---- everything organized for easy access.
Little and 16 other doctors, five physician assistants and staff at Family Physicians' two offices have been using the networked electronic system for three years. "
