Why We Don't Use Electronic Medical Record :
If there is one element in our practice that we are proud of is private record keeping. Digital records are easy to transfer and download in a fraction of time. Even the government has lost its own classified record by Wikileaks In November 2010/ Wikileaks was able to retract hundreds of thousands of documents digitally. PornWikileaks released STD history and diagnoses and real name of 14000-plus porn performers in 2011 from electronic database managed by a clinic. This event led to FBI investigation, however, the record was already out and confidentiality was breached. Although we respect and obey local and state law and department of health, we will continue to keep our patients record on paper which will be physically destroyed after specific time. It is harder and time and space consuming and more expensive to keep record on paper, however, it is difficult if not impossible to get searched and accessed by a trivial hacker.
