re: Physicians Prefer 'Best Of Breed' Emergency Department EHRs
Whenever an organization uses more than one EHR system there is going to be communication problems between the systems. Most systems arenGt interoperable so itGs hard to transfer data to other departments. Even though the BOB systems deliver a better system tailored to the needs of the ED systems, they have to look at the big picture for the organization. I think it is up to enterprise solution EHRs to try to provide tailored portals for specialties instead of trying to force fit their generic workflows in order to provide a better quality of service for all physicians.

The only thing nearly as bad as an ED not having a good EHR is having one that does not communicate and work well with every other department in a hospital, including admissions, labs, radiology, pharmacy and far more.
