Study: Physicians Practice Risky Habits With Electronic Health Records

“Some physicians practice potentially risky behavior when using electronic health records, according to a recent study published by the Society of Critical Care Medicine.
Researchers examined 2,068 electronic patient progress reports created by 62 residents and 11 attending physicians working in the intensive care unit of a Cleveland hospital for the study. Plagiarism-detection software was used to analyze progress notes for 135 patients over a five-month period.”
