"I can make much more informed decisions and provide better quality of care," said Dr. Navarte, who began using electronic records a few years ago.

Before the switch, for example, if a patient of another doctor called with a medical question on the weekend, and Dr. Navarte was on call, he would have few choices about how to help that patient.
