Your Opinion Matters?

A recent 2018 Deloitte survey gathered responses from 624 primary and specialty care physicians across the country to gain insight into clinicians’ opinions about interoperability, clinical workflows, EHR optimization, and clinical documentation and found that 66 percent of surveyed physicians were not asked to provide feedback to inform EHR optimization decisions.

And you wonder why things aren’t getting better?  Maybe the issue isn’t so much about EHR’s but the bigger issue is that those who employ doctors don’t care what they think….about anything?

Chew on that for a little.

    It is simply this:
    EHRs are not designed for physician- patient interaction at all. They are not likely to ever have interoperability, and institutions DO NOT CARE, as long as they can use them for reimbursement.

    “the bigger issue is that those who employ doctors don’t care what they think….about anything?”

    And an even bigger issue is why do doctors voluntarily work for employers who don’t care what they think about anything?
