Satisfaction lacking in electronic health records

Electronic health records might be more efficient than paper-based systems, but doctors and their patients aren't exactly satisfied with how they work. The American Medical Association is actually calling for a complete overhaul of EHR systems in federal agencies and hospitals around the country. The Association has a new framework it claims addresses the eight top challenges with EHR systems, and offers a solution for each. For example, many of its members complain the time they're forced to sit in front of a computer prevents them from interacting face-to-face with their patients. Pop-up reminders and hard-to-navigate menus can even make them less efficient than a paper-based system. The Association would like to see the technology integrate with the actual appointment with a patient.
