Video: How Does a Doctor Really Use EMR?



WSJ Video: How Does a Doc Really Use An Electronic Medical Record? A primary-care doctor in Ohio using an electronic system he bought about five years ago.

I have an extensive experience with Epic EMR, which is used system-wide at the Cleveland Clinic, and I have found it quite useful although the interface is far from intuitive. The Clinic has customized most of the Epic EMR applications and different templates have been created at department and section levels, and by individual physicians and residents. There are "super-user" courses available that teach you to how make your own templates and "smart phrases" to take a full advantage of the system. Epic EMR obviously can benefit from interface improvement but I find it more user friendly that VISTA EMR used at the VA hospitals and clinics.
