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.

It will benefit you: Some health workers don't like electronic records, but they benefit patients. You can get electronic copies of your records. Is a law, and your right, although they can charge for this. http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/understanding/consumers/medicalrecords.html. Electronic records also can remind doctors to do things that need to get done.
