I got sent this interesting article that starts by talking about a doctor who leaves his medical practice because of the 3 physician group’s EHR system. The complaint being that patient wait times were 1-2 hours. The major problem seems his inability to type and to learn the new system.
Did no one offer this doctor a scribe or voice recognition (although this would have probably even been harder for him) to make his EHR use easier?
Reminds me of the opposite side of the coin as well. A medical student friend of mine hates when he has a rotation in a practice that doesn’t have an EMR. Mostly because he can type so much faster than he can write.
