EMR frustrations

Professional burnout, particularly among doctors and nurses, has garnered more attention recently.  One common contributing factor involves the electronic medical record.  A 2017 study from the Annals of Family Medicine found that primary care physicians spend almost 2 hours on EHR tasks for each hour of direct patient care.  This accounts for nearly half their work day, and is often done after clinic hours.

One anonymous East Coast physician is using humor to vent some of his frustrations.
