EMR Use, Patient Goals, and EMR Data Quality


I always like to take into account all the EMR use percentages I can find. Although, I think most of them are just guesses.


This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Has any EMR vendor ever worked with a patient to develop an EMR? I imagine some did with the patient portal, but I can’t imagine many did it for much else. Although, I’m really intrigued by the idea of integrating patient goals into an EMR. However, I expect it won’t get much uptake until physicians start getting reimbursed for it.


Could the same be said about a paper chart? Although, I also can’t say I agree with Regina. I think every record I’ve seen of mine has been accurate. However, I don’t have a complicated medical history. I imagine Regina’s comment is true for those with chronic conditions and complex medical histories.
