Electronic Medical Records - The Reasons That
Make Doctors Feel Apprehensive
With most of the medical practices and clinicians opting for the universal and
interoperable Medical information infrastructure with accurate medical records,
the future is set to stick to the modern Electronic Medical Records Software
What Doctors Feel about Electronic Medical Records (EMRs)?
Not just the several advantages that EMR Software brings with it to the
medical industry, governmental requirements and compliance regulations
also demand adoption of this innovative medical records management
system. Yet, physicians and medical facilities are waking up to the call in a
lethargic manner. This scenario is fast changing, with practices realizing the
various benefits and efficiency of the digital records maintenance system.
This new-found health IT has taken the medical industry by storm, changing
the way of patient record management dramatically, and to the better.
Although most of the practicing physicians are tech-savvy and avid Internet
users, they do not take to the idea of sitting in front of the computer and
typing data into varied forms and pages necessitated by compliance
requirements. Moreover, being unable to empathize or sympathize with
computers as they do with patients is considered to be a hindrance.
Reasons behind Doctors’ Apprehension about EMR Software
Comfort Zone: The significant change that is being introduced by
EMR Software into the traditional mode of practicing is a factor that
make doctors resist the idea – human beings are averse to breaking
out of their established practices and comfort zones- doctors are no
Initial Complexity: EMR Software, no doubt, is a boon to practices
and helps them simplify all their routine processes – however, the
initial hiccups and confusions in implementation that is common in any
software in any field, are not all that pleasing to doctors, making them
wary of the technology
Fear of Failure: Having been used to their own conventional methods
and processes developed over years of practice, physicians may find it
tough to accept the fact that EMR Software offers all the benefits and
ease needed by them in a quick and revolutionary manner – they are
concerned about whether the new system will work- without disturbing
their existing set up
Doctors had better consider the pros & cons of EMR Software
A major number of practitioners have started using Electronic medical
records software. However, there are those who still choose not to adopt this
novel technology for a number of reasons such as resistance to change, cost
fears, and security concerns. As with any new technology, it is better to
check how the system works, what are its different pros and cons, and how
it would help practices in the long term.
Increasingly more number of Physicians and Practices are
implementing EMR Software
Realizing the benefits and ease of use, several physicians and facilities are
starting to adopt this medical information technology.EMR Software has
been developed with the help of medical professionals and is filled with
diverse needs of different specialties and departments.
The future success and fast implementation of EMR Software across the globe
depends on doctors’ direct participation in its design and implementation.
