What We Like About Our EHR

What We Like About Our EHR

Cynicism seems to be the preferred flavor of physicians when it comes to their EHR systems.

You've heard the complaints. The systems are clunky, too many clicks, unusable, they make you answer irrelevant questions, alert fatigue, etc. This year's Physicians Practice Technology Survey revealed that 67.9 percent of practices say they have not gotten a return on investment from their EHR system.

This begs the question, is there anything practitioners like about the EHR. We asked members of our editorial advisory board what was the one thing they liked about their EHR system. Here's what they had to say.

Can anyone recommend an EHR or Practice management system for a solo practice?

Overall I disliked EHR. It hastened my retirement.
Medical Records are one instance where we, doctors, are guilty until proven innocent. If it is not in the note it did not happen, hence needless clicks and unnecessary information. Just look at an eight page orthopedic referral note.

But it is much easier to follow lab work, referrals and follow up visits. Prescriptions are readable and built in dose checks and allergies result in fewer mistakes.

Too much time invested per pt, robotic crap!. I can write a complete legible note, check meds, do everything ACA wants us to do with my own hand written notes, be complete and faster, no work taken home in a tenth of the time. I wish EHR's were a nightmare that we will wake up from and be happy again.

Any benefit is far outweighed by the wasted time
