We nurses want the EMR to do more than display patient data #NurseITchat

Seems fitting to start off our Twitter roundup with a nurse related tweet for Nurse Week. Lisa makes an interesting comment in this tweet. Unfortunately, most of the EHR effort is focused on the doctors and not nearly enough time on the nurses. When you look at the nurse interface of many EHR, it feels like an afterthought. It’s too bad since they spend so much of their work life in the EHR.

I wrote this post over on EMR and HIPAA, but I wanted the readers of EMR and EHR to read it as well. I think this is an important question for all of us. What good can we do? Can we do more than we’re doing today?

The concept of Good, Better and Best EMR is a really interesting question. We all know that there are good, better and best EMR, but there’s no really good way to know which EMR falls into which category. Plus, it changes based on an individual clinic or hospital’s environment. I wish I knew an easier way to tell the difference.
