EMRs Cutting Doctor-Patient Time

A recent article in American Medical News "Don't let EMRs cut into your doctor-patient time" describes a situation where the interaction between a physician and his patient is diminished and less intimate because he was stuck behind a computer screen trying to document the encounter.

That's what DRT - Discrete Reportable Transcription is all about. Why force a doctor to type his or her own note or search for the right diagnosis on a computer screen. Physicians should be focused on their patients, not their keyboards. DRT allows physicians to dictate their patient visits, leaving more time to improve their patient's health. The transcribed information is delivered directly into the system as discrete data.
