The difference is that a traditional medical recording chart uses a story form, but the problem oriented medical recording chart uses an outline form. The first is what a lot of television shows use: a sheet that has a lot of writing that can’t be glanced over quickly if you’re looking over someone’s shoulder. This is because the format requires full sentences and a lot of information. The most recent item written is always on top, so it’s easy to see what is going on at that moment.

However, the POMR (or problem oriented sheet) allows the use of fragments by requiring a diagnosis and a plan of action. That’s all that’s needed on a basic level. Of course, both are more complicated than I have made them sound.

The answer here for this question would be the first option and that is that the traditional way of medical record charting has an abbreviated story where the problem oriented version of charting shows everything done in an outline form. The traditional medical record charting would have a small summary of how an incident happened on up to what the patient was treated with and what doctors were used to treat the patient.

The problem oriented way of medical record charting is done in outline form and breaks everything down right to the smallest details. The traditional way was one that has been done for years and years and it really made it easier for the doctors to explain things especially to family members. The problem oriented medical record charting method breaks everything down in detail and it really helps cover the tracks of the attending physicians to make sure that the treatment protocol has been followed right down to the most exact of details.
