For years, doctors had charts. Hospitals had charts. And charts sort of stank. Hard to read, hard to find, and chock full of, well, something, they were a frustrating part of medical practice. And now, we are entering a new computer age! An age of electronic medical records..which are, frustrating to enter, potentially alters doctor patient communication, and potentially allows everyone who matters to see that you really did end up in the ER as a sophomore in college because you over indulged on Margarita night. How do you balance all of these needs? Join me and Dr. Ann O'Malley at the Center for Studying Health System Change in Washington as we talk about the Electronic Health Records.
