Informaticians Propose ‘Essential EHR Reforms for This Decade’ – Healthcare Innovation

Read article - Andrew Gettinger ’76, MED ’79, a professor emeritus of anesthesiology, is featured in an article about his recently published proposal for reforms in electronic health records. “Although addressing shortcomings in EHRs will not cure all that ails our current healthcare system, implementing these recommendations should positively affect patients and clinicians and move us toward the original vision of a patient-centered, technology-enhanced healthcare ecosystem that is designed to significantly improve outcomes at a lower cost, with more satisfied patients and clinicians,” Gettinger writes.
