Why physicians aren’t buying the EMR Kool-aid

Physician’s don’t care about making the EMR the centerpiece of the patient encounter:

“You have to realize that physicians have been trained four years in med school, then three to seven years in post-graduate training. The funny thing is that they want to take care of patients. They don’t want to become specialists in creating medical records. They look at the medical record as an incidental cost of doing business. Many EMR programs act as if the medical record is the whole point of the patient encounter. It is just not.”
