The information for this article was collected at the Department of Veterans Affairs Domiciliary in White City, Oregon. The intent is to show the transition from a paper record to an entirely computerized patient record system and to show the impact on nursing practice at the Domiciliary. Clinicians using the paperless record have verbalized positive experiences and derived much benefit because of easier and quicker access to patient records, thereby allowing more time for direct patient care.
