Technological impact on physician documentation, workflow

by Carolyn Riel
With most patient charts now housed in EHRs, technology has become a standard part of the healthcare industry. Growing technological adoption, however, means physicians spend an increasing amount of time on computers and using technology. Physicians sometimes meet this development with hesitation, as their main concern is providing patient care, not pressing a long series of buttons to input or acquire information. While physicians may be reluctant to use technology at first, there are many ways that its adoption can improve their workflow and patient care.
