From a reader: “Saw this and just had to send it along. This EHR will prevent burnout and save our families!”
So let’s get this straight. Your life as a doc sucks and you are losing your family so go ahead and invest $100,000 or more into an EHR system and get an hour back of time. All that is bullshit except for the cost part. In actuality, the EHR will drive you nuts and the quality metrics and insurance hurdles will make you work even longer. It won’t change your work-life balance but it will give you better work-work balance, which means you can work more at home.
