Recently, an opinion piece in the New England Journal of Medicine described a program for getting clinicians engaged in EMR redesign. The organization solicited ideas for getting rid of processes that didn’t make sense or did not add value. It acknowledged that many of these processes seemed like good ideas at the time, but may no longer be helpful. If you feel that there are things you do in the electronic medical record that don’t add value, let us know. We may not be able to change everything, or it may have to wait for the integrated EHR, ┬ábut we will definitely look at it.
