Though Im new to the electronic health-record arena, Id like to say that its not exactly scientific or even fair to make blanket statements condemning all EHR systems as bad, especially considering how many there are on the market today. Lets see some usability study data to back up this condemnation.
Also, the implication that the one real thing wrong with all EHRs is their apparent inability to present both current and historical data in a way thats useful is another statement that, if made, should be backed up with usability study data or at least something other than opinion.
