We now live in a computer-oriented world, and the healthcare area is no different. Long gone are the days when your doctor writes down a few notes on a piece of paper in a manila folder, then scribbles out a prescription. When you arrive at The Pain Management Group you will notice from the time you walk into our treatment area that you will be greeted by a Medical Assistant who carries a tablet style computer and enters your current problems, medical history, vital signs, medications and other pertinent information.
From that point your provider will use their own tablet computer to document your physical examination and then enter his or her plan of care and electronically produce prescriptions that will be either printed out or sent directly to your pharmacy. They may also enter orders for procedures or diagnostic tests such as an MRI, CT or X-ray directly from their computers. The providers communicate and send tasks to other team members who will answer back, indicating that these tasks have been completed.
