Why Patients, Not EHRs, Deserve Our Undivided Attention
We cannot earn patients’ trust and respect if we are tethered to a computer in the exam room, navigating the EHR concurrent to a visit or otherwise in a hurry to finish so we can return to our office where data entry to the EHR awaits us.
Not long ago, during one of those long evenings of charting, I thought to myself, if I can use Alexa to place an order for my favorite shaving cream and have it delivered the next day, surely there has to be a better, easier way of doing this.
We need technology that helps physicians rather than hinders them, and I believe technology like this is going to make a huge difference in the lives of physicians and their patients.
