Standardizing documentation with fill in the blank with dropdown tabs forms included on HIS interfaces. The HIS steer nurses and physicians to the same questions and assessments for all patients. Less waste is produced by nearly eliminating the need for any paper charting. Another benefit to electronic charting is that the same information can be stored with much less space used. HIS increase productivity because all staff can do their jobs better and in less time. This also removes the stress of all the paperwork that was handwritten before.
