I prefer a free narrative widget with autotext expansion and hotkeys 
"tagging" words / phrases in the narrative for database referencing. Like:
"hx cough*14d(tab)" 
-> expands to "history of cough for 14 days"
->tab key triggers parsing -> "cough" tagged as "presenting complaint", "14 
days" tagged as duration of presenting complaint. 
Takes a little while to get used to such a system, but it allows you to 
continue your narrative style as used to while at the same time collecting 
data in a suitable format for later analysis
