Abstract

The electronic medical record (EMR) is changing the landscape of medical practice in the modern age. Increasing emphasis on quality metric reporting, data-driven documentation, and timely coding and billing are pressuring institutions across the country to adopt the latest EMR technology. The impact of these systems on the patient-physician relationship is profound. One year following the latest EMR transition, one resident reviews his experience and provides a personal perspective on the impact the EMR on patient-physician communication.
