A3. I see a lot of new tech coming to challenge the "old guard". EMR technology was never built to actually treat patients, they are glorified accounting systems which is why we are seeing physician burnout because of the required documentation to create a bill.

Wow, what a great, and candid answer! "Glorified accounting systems" sounds about right!
my point too, EMRs are often expensive paper with little benefit, Drs didnt go to med school to be data entry clerks

Amen! And their resistance to change is nuts. And there's the fact that many health systems are millions of dollars in so they feel stuck. Blow up those legacy EMRs and let's get patient data to work for physicians so it can work for patients! . #eWEEKChat
@HarmonyHIT, we develop a medical record storage platform called @HlthDataArchive that includes single sign-on from the active EHR to make historical medical record lookup quick and easy for doctors. This helps relieve some of the frustrations
@suzanneclough Blow up is right. Too much risk lingering in legacy EMRs. Prime targets for data breach.
