Opinion: EHRs must solve real problems
Someday I hope to have an Electronic Health Records (EHR) system I can believe in -- one that helps me practice medicine better. When doctors express dissatisfaction with the software they use, it's not because of an aversion to technology or resistance to change. Medicine has been on the cutting edge of technology for years. There are journals full of ongoing research that regularly change the way we care for patients. I treat many conditions differently now than I did when I graduated from medical school 15 years ago. We now use robots, lasers, and endoscopes in surgery.
