With a computer in every room, including exam rooms, the system works extremely well. Her medical assistant was able to type in the notes, vitals, and reasons for the patient visit, and then in the exam room she could pull up the file and add her own notes. The software also allowed her to run searches or reports on patients taking a particular drug, or find out when they are due for their next mammogram. The EKG connected directly with the computer, read it for her, and allowed her to edit the reading, and then print or fax it.
It's short for "vital signs", which are measurements of temperature, blood pressure, pulse etc that indicate the body's general well-being, or otherwise.
