WSJ: Can Technology Cure Health Care?

There is more mounting evidence that EMR technology has it's share of shortfalls and unintended consequences.  Jacob Golstein of the Wall Street Journal recently wrote an interesting article called "Can Technology Cure Health Care?"questioning if technology is the end all, be all for health care.  He noted that physicians and users of EMR technology state that the technology is often difficult or time consuming to use.  It brings a new class of errors as physician workflow changes and is disrupted.

Keep in mind that Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT) addresses many of these gaps.  It is important for physicians and other users of such technology to know that there are technologies and services which can integrate with their EMR/EHR to bring greater productivity, ease of use and a second set of eyes for quality.
