Bloggered: Tried to post yesterday, but Blogger wouldn't let me for some reason. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, although it feels like it sometimes.
The EMR saga continues. I'm beginning to think the reader who emailed saying that adopting electronic records slows down a busy practice was right. Despite one good day last week, so far it's mostly meant more work for me. The medical assistant, who also happens to be the one employee least comfortable with computers, is constantly running behind and can't seem to keep up with her other work, such as stocking rooms, answering phone messages, and calling in refills. I remain optimistic and think that once we are completely switched to electronic records and don't have any of the work of paper records, it will get better. I just hope no one quits out of frustration in the meantime. posted by Sydney on
