That’s why electronic medical records haven’t turned out to be the panacea they were touted to be.

Doctors and nurses in hospitals hate them. They take up incredible amounts of time that could be devoted to patient care. Instead, everyone feels the pressure to “tend” to the computers first.

Don’t think patients don’t notice.

Yes. EMR vendors have their own special circle in hell.

Part of it is the result of government meddling and part of it is just sheer incompetence, but, as far as I can tell, all the EMR systems are just different flavors of craptastic. I feel sometimes like I’m living through the mid 90s again when it comes to medical software, and the good old days weren’t all that good in that respect.

I happen to manage technology for a rural health system so I have to live this stuff every day.
