Funny Physician Exam Room EHR Etiquette Video

I usually reserve the various EHR videos I find for the Healthcare Scene EHR video website. However, this one was too funny to not share with a wider audience. Here’s the YouTube description for the video:

Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) involves more than implementing an EHR. It involves interacting with patients and the computer in the exam room in a way that is productive and enhances the interaction between the patient and the physician. Learn about how Reliant Medical Group (formerly known as Fallon Clinic) uses Kaiser Permanente’s LEVEL technique to ensure a successful patient encounter.

While I’ve said that the video is funny, it also does bring out some really important points about physician exam room EHR etiquette. When I first started watching the video I was wondering how they were going to get physicians to actually take the time to watch the video. Then, about half way through I was laughing at the video which made me watch through more of it. I’m not sure if the humor was intentional or not, but I expect those reading this site will get a good laugh at the video embedded below while seeing some important points on EHR etiquette.

Thanks to Carl Bergman for pointing the video out to me.
