A constant complaint of physicians is the difficulty of using electronic medical record. Far from contributing to the patient experience, EMRs often prevent effective transparency, decrease the “inter-subjective” connectivity of the healthcare encounter, and have low levels of user-friendliness.
EMRs could be so much more, if designed with care and thoughtfulness. We aspire to create an EMR that informs the patients, enables physicians’ diagnostic thought process, and is a collaborative effort between patient and doctor. Our Re-imagined EMR will have all of these facets within a framework that is as intuitive as an online social network.
