To continue with Jacob's topic on EHRs, there's a wide range of opinions among clinicians on their use in the clinical setting and the sometimes negative effect on the doctor-patient relationship. This conflict was poignantly made by a 7-year-old girl when she drew a picture of her doctor staring at a computer with the family on the other side of the room (printed in JAMA: brown.edu/about/administration...).
What can we do, as physicians, to best utilize our digital EHR platforms to help treat our patients and maintain strong connections? Should we be relying more on automated algorithms to manage routine tasks (home med reconciliation, ordering routine lab work) or will new technologies such as speech-to-text or video recording lessen the burden of online documentation?
