Why some doctors don't lean on EHR

InformationWeek, May 29, 2013

A new study argues that some doctors make only minimal use of electronic health records (EHRs) not because they're Luddites, but because their style of practice "absorbs" clinical uncertainty rather than trying to minimize it through the use of IT. If this is true, the widespread adoption of EHRs may not change how some doctors diagnose and treat patients. The study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), used interviews and direct observations of 28 physicians in a Texas multispecialty group to explore the reasons why some doctors used the practice's EHR more than others did.
