Episode Description:

Medicine has seen the rapid advance of information technology in recent years, affecting both physicians and patients. The adoption of electronic medical records has been swift: some 90 percent of physicians in Massachusetts now use some form of electronic medical records. But the road to EHRs for physicians has been rocky, and the reception by patients seems mixed, with concerns about physician attention and confidentiality. What is the state of electronic medical records today? Are they improving medical care for patients? Do they facilitate or impede the physician’s role? Should patients be concerned about privacy and access to their confidential medical records by parties other than their physician? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this new technology, for both physicians and patients?
