Another medical encounter, another clipboard of paper forms

November 5, 2014

I can vividly recall being told that if we spent billions on EHRs and HIE that the days of patients being handled clipboards would be over.

Nope.

I had two specialist visits in the last two weeks. Both handled me clipboards filled with paper forms. Each asked for the same stuff that was on all of the other forms from every other provider.

What a waste of taxpayer money.
