“Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change.” – Confucius
We are in the midst of a lot of changes with our electronic health record. And to be honest, I want to throw myself on the ground and pound my fists into the floor while screaming like a two year old: “I WILL NOT CHANGE because your changes suck!”
We have been told by the powers that be that a ton of extra work is necessary with each office visit to have the functionality we need. The function everyone else has with their superior electronic health records.
In the end, having the functionality will be worth the extra work. I hope. It is embarrassing that we have not had these capabilities long ago.
But add that to the clinic roof leaking for the umpteenth time, getting stiffed on the rent and screwed over on a subsidy, having spotty Internet access and EHR instability, and feeling that the people who need to care don’t actually care…
Why can’t it just be easy to focus on the patients?
Alright. Rant over. Moving on.
