I was asked the other day about the impact EHR's will have on provider productivity. Not in terms of improvement, but the loss of skill set. The rationale was that EHR's "spoon feed" information. Therefore, providers will lose some of their analytical skill sets. Was this just an excuse not to use an EHR, or maybe just the comments of a technophobe? I guess I am just one of the guys waiting for the Star Trek system...just speak to the computer.
