I've expanded my latest blog post into a new Forbes column: "Are Mandatory Electronic Medical Records Causing Doctor Burnout?"
In this piece, I discuss why both doctors and patients are frustrated with electronic medical records (EMRs), drawing upon good reporting from the Chicago Tribune and the Wall Street Journal. I also discuss some ways patients can act to protect the quality of their health care, despite the problems caused by the EMRs.
Thanks to Dr. Matthew Bowdish for alerting me to the WSJ piece.
Bonus: I managed to violate Betteridge's Law of Headlines!
