Why doctors are getting their asses kicked by technology
“Physicians have terrible technology, but they refuse to recognize high-tech as a medical specialty. They must integrate technology as they do laboratory science.
Physicians are certainly suffering from poorly-designed electronic medical records (EHR), but they are also guilty of wilful blindness in abdicating responsibility for technology in medicine. This must change.
Physicians have a higher suicide rate than post-combat troops in the military. A lot of this is due to widespread burnout from poorly designed EHRs. Yes, it sucks, but who is really at fault?
What if this problem was a consequence of a professional stance medicine can choose to reverse? What if it won’t go away until we do?”
Drea Burbank is a physician-entrepreneur.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Why doctors are getting their asses kicked by technology.”
