BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 11, 2013) - ABELMed EHR-EMR/PM v12 (local solution) has been approved for handwriting recognition on tablets and slates running Windows 7, 8, XP and Vista Operating Systems as a data input method as part of the OntarioMD Funding Eligible EMR offering. This is an exciting development that is set to enhance productivity and improve the work-life balance of physicians and staff. It will make documentation such as patient charting significantly faster, saving valuable time for physicians, staff and patients. ABELMed Inc., manufacturer of ABELMed EHR-EMR, is pleased with this approval as it will encourage EMR adoption by physicians who prefer writing over typing.

"ABELMed EMR works seamlessly with the handwriting recognition functionality on slates and tablets running Windows OS so health care providers can continue to write their notes at their usual pace, but still enter the necessary documentation into the EMR.", said Dr. V. J. Kulkarni - Medical Director, ABELMed Inc. "ABELMed also works seamlessly with voice recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking and provides hundreds of templates that are customizable for specific specialties, simplifying and speeding up the charting process".

Recent models of slates and tablets running Windows OS are significantly lighter and come with a screen that can be flipped, which facilitates handwriting. Their portability makes it easier for physicians to carry them from one examination room to another and chart during the visit without losing the face-to-face contact with their patient. Real time synchronization with other users such as the front desk avoids duplicate charting, saving time and effort. For many practitioners, investment in a slate or tablet is all they need, saving thousands of dollars in hardware.
