It has: Most of the physicians and nurses spend more time on the computers than with patients. Patient care may not suffer as much but I am afraid patient dissatisfaction will increase. The physicians are not only to learn emr but also cpoe(computerized physician order entry) which become a nightmare for us. These are all governmental/ medicare/ guidelines.
