If this video doesn't constitute a need for a physician using a Tablet PC, I don't know what does! This is absolutely the last thing I would want to see as a patient interacting with a physician! The tablet is just like carrying around a patient chart, only electronic and has a format much easier to read and locate the desired information. BD

Most EMRs don't work on a tablet very well.ReplyDelete
What was so bad about the computer setup ?
I say it's not that bad ???
She is very cold! I think the tablet can be held in hand just like a chart and it is a much better experience for all and the distraction of the keyboard is gone, plus the patient doesn't have to see how bad a doctor's typing is too.:)ReplyDelete
I'm guessing that this doc would have been staring her tablet (or a paper chart, for that matter) instead of the "conventional" computer setup in her room. The method of data recording does not change the "warmth" of the physician.ReplyDelete
