re: Dictation And EHRs Don't Play Well Together
I've watched doctors use EHR systems. One actually walked me through everything he entered. Ignoring the mediocrity of the system (in that it asked a hand surgeon questions about his male patient's 'female parts'), he went through piles of checklists - carefully, and entered in notes by hand, and confirmed that the attached xrays were appropriate and properly interpreted. The system had issues, but I was quite satisfied as to his use of the system, including the level of detail and the accuracy. I've listened to other doctors do dictation and watched it being transcribed - end result is a complete lack of precision and lots of errors, and nothing that a diagnostic support system could use.
