ObamaCare Fail: Downside of EMR

THE DOWNSIDE OF ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS: Interesting op-ed by internist Dr. Anne Marie Valinoti in the Wall Street Journal today, in which she asserts:
At first I thought EMR sounded like a good idea. Then our practice started using one.
Tasks that once took seconds to perform on paper now require multistepped points and clicks through a maze of menus. Checking patients into the office is an odyssey involving scanners and the collection of demographic data—their race, their preferred language, and so much more—required by Medicare to prove that we are achieving “meaningful use” of our EMR. What “meaningful use” means no one knows for sure, but our manual on how to achieve it is 150 pages long.

These guys remind me of how great the computer was supposed to be and how we were supposed to go to a paperless office. If you look at any contract or lease from about 40 years ago, when people used to have to type it by hand, it was 12 pages, max. Now with word processing, it isn't uncommon to have to wade through a 40 page commercial lease.
The same thing is going on with EMR. Instead of jotting down a couple of notes on a chart, the doctor has to enter a gazillion things into the computer. My doctor's office was backed up all summer dealing with this garbage.
Again, this shows why you don't put people who have never done anything in real life in charge of stuff!
