Hospitalist Perspectives on Electronic Medical Records

SHM’s Health Information Technology Committee diligently analyzed survey results that captured hospitalists’ attitudes towards electronic medical records, resulting in a white paper now available. The purpose of this paper was to effect change on EHR systems by informing conversations with decision makers and to provide hospital medicine a definitive voice in the landscape of the tumultuous world of electronic medical record systems.

By sharing these results, SHM hopes to raise awareness of the unacceptable performance of existing systems that contributes to slower-than-desired improvement in quality and safety as well as increasing provider frustration. SHM strongly believes that healthcare needs a renewed focus on initial goals of technology adoption in healthcare.
