Electronic Medical Records (EMR) – Part 1
In a time where speed and accessibility are ever-growing priorities for businesses, it’s hard to believe that the healthcare industry has only recently made use of the electronic medical record (EMR). Healthcare has always been about information management, but only recently have hospitals recognized the value of the EMR. Listen in as David Rich, MD, Chief Medical Information Officer at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Jeff Hoffman, MD and Jim Menke, MD discuss why it’s taken so long for the industry to adopt this new technology and how Nationwide Children’s Hospital is among the top ten percent of hospitals throughout the country leading this transition. Be sure to listen in on part two of this podcast, as we continue our discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of the EMR.
