re: EHRs, Communication Can Co-Exist For Doctors, AMA Says
If a physician never really had great communication with a patient when using paper charts, they will also tend to do the same when they have electronic records. Also if the physician is reluctant to accept and adapt to the changes, their attitudes towards the EHR will be reflected onto the patient and will lead to these unsatisfactory patient reviews. The training of the physicians and the setup of the exam rooms also play a major role in physician patient interactions when it comes to EHRs.
