Question special

One big change from medical school to residency is the need to maintain accurate and timely documentation in the electronic medical record (EMR). Interns often spend a lot of time learning how to navigate the EMR just to write notes, write orders, and communicate with other providers.

- Are there ways to prepare for this shift in responsibilities related to documentation and the EMR?
- How can Interns avoid making errors in the EMR?
- Should Interns be worried about legal liabilities and malpractice claims?
