“A colleague of mine, a successful physician-entrepreneur in his late sixties, recently told me about a visit to his primary care doctor after a long hiatus. “I had seen him a few years earlier, and I like him,” he said. “But this visit was entirely different. This time, he asks me a question, and as soon as I begin to answer, his head is down in his laptop. Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap. He looks up at me to ask another question. As soon as I speak, again it’s tap-tap-tap-tap.” “What did you do?” I asked. “I found another doctor.”“
Don’t fall into the Administrivia trap being set by providers of Electronic HealthBilling Records (EHRs). Understand that the 2000 year old model of healthcare is broken forever, be prepared to let Patients help and get some proper training on how to use the tools of our time.
