Medical records

The failure of current systems

Current electronic medical record systems fail to address the basic needs of the physicians.

Lack of interoperability

The systems are built by different companies and are incompatible with each other. 

Offline first approach is needed

If the network connection goes down the medical record should still be accessible locally. 

Patient and physician need to be in focus

Current systems are not made with the patient or the physician in focus. Systems are hard to use and mistakes are easily made. 

Paper records still have a lot of benefits

Electronic medial records have both benefits and drawbacks, and the drawbacks are often greater than the benefits. 

Physicians not happy with the current situation

Many physicians are still longing for the good old days with pen and paper, but feel, sadly, that the technological development is now out of their control and that there is nothing they can do about it. 

Documentation overkill

Physicians should not be forced to become data entry specialists. 

Satire tells the truth

Sometimes parody is necessary to reveal the true sentiment.

The issue very clearly stated
