New research out of Mayo Clinic showed that the clerical burden placed upon physicians directly contributed to professional burnout and decreased job satisfaction. The hours of data entry, which take time away from patient care and add to a long day, were to blame. The specialties most affected were family medicine physicians, urologists, otolaryngologists and neurologists.
Physician burnout has been proven to negatively affect patient care, including medical errors, as well as doctors actively seeking to decrease direct patient care hours. Combined, these two consequences harm our health system.
Electronic Health records can pave the way for coordinating care within departments and facilities. However, in its' current state, EHR impairs the very people who provide services.
