The Health Technology Forum, Health 2.0 Dallas, Health Wildcatters and the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs are partnering up on October 23 for an important discussion on Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems, led by Fred Trotter.
The event will “focus on the variety of challenges in designing an EHR, and some of the issues and frustrations that users currently experience.”
A 2014 survey of the American College of Physicians revealed that family practice physicians spent 48 minutes more a day on EHRs. Ninety percent reported that “at least 1 data management function was slower after EMRs were adopted, and 64% reported that note writing took longer. A third (34%) reported that it took longer to find and review medical record data, and 32% reported that it was slower to read other clinicians’ notes.”
Fred Trotter is a noted software security expert, open source advocate, and early crusader for using IT to improve healthcare.
