I’d like to hear the health IT industry acknowledge that we have yet to actually help physicians, and commit to doing so. In first-generation EHR systems, the industry took various ideas about how to improve medicine and workflows for the physician, and we imposed those adjustments on them. Everyone had their own views about how a doctor should work, but the one person we didn’t consult was the doctor. We added technology and reduced the productivity of healthcare’s most precious human resources. This is not the way it was supposed to work.
