For medical records, yes, pretty much. A notepad, a biro, a thick envelope and one of those big filing cabinets are all you need.

Computerisation adds nothing except the ability to sell records to Google.

X-rays and other imaging a bit different, but they don't need a massive system and importantly don't need to be part of the same system as patient details, history and notes.
