We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 12/1 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Gabe Charbonneau, MD (@gabrieldane) on the topic of “Using Technology to Fight EHR Burnout.”
We live in confusing times. The marriage of technology and medicine is on the cusp of game changing breakthroughs. There is so much promise with deep learning/AI, big data, and the exponential growth in processing speed and storage, just to name a few. So, how is it that we are yet to get out of the dark ages when it comes to the EHR?
Physician burnout is a real problem. It seems like there is a new article put out weekly on the topic. Study after study points fingers of blame at the EHR. The pain from data entry and systems that don’t flow for clinicians is at an all time high. “Too many clicks”, and too many docs spending “pajama time” charting at home.
It has to get better.
While tech has been identified as a top contributor to the problem, it also has the potential to be a huge part of the solution.
Join us as we dive into this topic during this week’s #HITsm chat using the following questions.
