Electronic Communication, comment

Electronic communication is a great idea. It saves all the patients information electronically which makes it easy for medical personnel to pull up and read. This is helpful when the patient cannot remember or is unable to tell you his/her medical past. Although this is a great idea, and I support it fully, what I do not support is how I have been seeing it work out. I have witnessed in multiple medical settings this technology working and once the staff has figured it out, they switch programs and have to start all over. Re-learning new systems over and over again is exhausting for medical personal. They tend to have problems finding what they are looking for because the system is always changing so they end up wasting time trying to figure out the current system. If the medical community can agree to one type of system/program and do simple updates once a year then this would really be an amazing tool.

    I agree, I think that constant change of the programs is a cost saving measure of the company.

    I also agree with you here as well.  Every time we learn a new electronic record at work, they are changing it and we have to go through a whole bunch of training all over again.  I think its a great tool.  In some cases there is even pictures of the patient on their record so that you have an identifier when they walk in.  It saves all their medical history and anything you would need to know medically about them.  I just wish that some hospitals would stick to one electronic record instead repeating and making us use different ones all the time.
