Clinical Documentation Specialists

Physicians are frustrated with electronic health records (EHRs). Data entry is time-consuming (and well below physicians’ skill levels), user interfaces don’t match clinical workflow and templates don’t match medical record needs, and face-to-face care is compromised, they say. In addition, at the same time that EHRs run the risk of creating information overload, there are too often insufficient health information-exchange capabilities. This is nothing new — yet high levels of frustration remain, and are growing.

We can’t tear up EHRs and start over, so the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have taken a top-down approach, creating federal policy requirements that force providers to maximize EHR use while pushing EHR makers to step up interoperability and make user interface improvements. Darius Philon Womens Jersey
