I posted the following video on EHR videos, but I thought that many readers of this site would find it really interesting as well. The video has a bunch of physicians talking about their training for the Cerner EHR. I’m sure many of you have heard doctors just like the ones in the video before. Here’s a little background on the EHR implementation:
Via Christi is part of Ascension Health, and it’s the largest health system in Kansas. It has about a dozen hospitals across the state, several more clinics and senior centers. They had 15 different EHR systems they turned off when they switched to Cerner’s EHR. The Kansas paper reported that the new EHR cost $85 million.
I love to listen to all the doctors talking and think “and what’s the rest of the story.” If you listen carefully you can see how many of them are very careful with their wording.
