Improving the Experience of Digital Health Care
You know what, I was one of the early adopters in ehealth. I designed an EMR which worked pretty well. But over the years, what I’ve seen is a real downgrade in most of the applications I use.
The problem, as I see it, is that these programs weren’t written by people who understand the users. Our EMR had validity because fellow physicians wrote the templates. We made things work because we knew what to anticipate.
In my opinion, the physician experience with digital health will not improve until we get back in the driver’s seat and produce some decent code.
