Developing medical record keeping software

The need for keeping short, comprehensive, useful medical records has become so acute that the electronic medical record keeping has become s important as water. The issues are easy user friendly data entry formats, easily transferable information codes,security, standardisation, insurance accessibility and above all completeness of examination and history taking. With the advennt of tele medicine as part of medical care we have to focus on good history taking and physical exam.I have developed a software as part of EMR to use these important inputs.
The culture of meticulous record keeping has to be encouraged especially in Pakistan.
