re: U.K. Cancer Doctors Stop Lugging Suitcases Of Documents
IG«÷m surprised it took them this long to start digitizing their patient records. With what Dr. Griffiths said about spending almost 40% of his time on admin and documents, I would assume that they would have wanted to change that long ago. With this system they will now have much more time available to dedicate to the patients and thus will be able to provide even better quality healthcare. The ability to search for a patientG«÷s information and access it remotely will surely improve their healthcare system, and I donG«÷t really see a reason why any doctor will be opposed to this idea.
