“Studies continue to be released that decry the time physicians spend on computers rather than patients. These studies do our field a disservice because they don’t focus on the many ways EHRs have helped physicians do better for their patients.
A few weeks ago I saw a patient Friday afternoon after 5 pm. It was unscheduled and unexpected (someone scheduled for someone else who was running very late), and it was a simple acute problem, so I was asked if I would handle it.”
