Computers or clipboards? AMA addresses electronics in exam rooms
Abstract: A recent American Medical Association (AMA) report provides encouraging news, along with helpful tips, for hospitals that are incorporating exam room computing in their electronic health record (EHR) processes. This article looks at the report’s findings, which conclude that EHRs are expected to improve the quality and efficiency of care delivery, with only minimal negative effects. But doctors themselves play an important role in furthering the success of EHR processes.
