Electronic Medical Records efficiency:
Financial cost is a big component of switching to an EMR, but there are other "costs," such as the cultural change required when any change in normal operations occurs, and the additional time that may be needed when entering information on a keyboard rather than in scribbled doctor notes and dictation. One way to reduce the keyboarding time is to integrate voice recognition software
into the EMR, so that the dictation is an automatic part of the EMR. Pretty good idea.
Of course, there are other reasons
for physician pushback.
