This experience left me wondering: How often are good clinicians being turned into distant, vexed and struggling professionals who barely acknowledge that the patient is there twiddling their thumbs? And how can the health system afford this kind of timewaste and error-prone user patterns? I don’t know the answer to either question but I think we should find out.
Working as a Healthcare IT professional I have seen this scenario one too many times. Usually this is due to a poorly designed EMR, system workflow and lack of training.
