Dr. Dale Alsager, osteopathic physician and surgeon, a 1994 graduate from the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, Kirksville, Missouri, has been notified of the acceptance for publication of a 3000-word manuscript chronicling his ten years of research and development experience with electronic medical records. Physician’s Practice, a division of CMPMedica, is a peer review journal that has published multiple articles on electronic medical records targeted at medical practitioners. Dr. Alsager’s article will be published in the June issue of the Physician’s Practice Journal in addition to a special 2008 Annual Technology Guide which the Journal puts out annually.

Dr. Alsager was a member of the AOA/AAO committee chaired by Dr. Sleszynski during its inception when the osteopathic profession was working on the incorporation of the OMT SOAP note into electronic format. Dr. Alsager has put his ideas into action and, has adapted electronic medical records to document OMT in his practice.

“I am pleased that over ten years of experience using electronic medical records in an OMT practice is going to be published. I have survived an expensive learning curve which I am pleased to share with my colleagues, saving them from the same mistakes that I made”, says Dr. Alsager.

His article is entitled “My EMR nightmare…and why I’d do it again”. It is a frank dissertation on both the good and the bad of electronic medical records and pitfalls to avoid.

Dr. Alsager is a 1994 graduate of the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, now known as AT Still University. His practice is located in Maple Valley, WA.
