Paper files are reliable, medical legal standard and ultimately recyclable. How about your computer? They look bad and are toxic to landfills for a thousand years. Your old hard drives when discarded may still be accessible to piracy. By the way, I support your right to keep medical records in any way, shape or form that you and your patients see fit. The government HITECH HIPAA ACA/Obamacare violates my right to record keeping systems that might benefit my patients, yet force me to comply, and make me subject to penalties when the mandates system fails. #EpicFail
