Why Physicians Still Don't Have Access to Patient Data from Systems Outside Their EHR

 

It's 2018, a time when there is an endless amount of information available, multiple technologies to choose from, a 24/7 news cycle, and access to any type of information, in seconds, at your fingertips.

The results were not totally suprprising to most. The EHRs that have been on top, remained on top, and overall, the satisfaction scores went up, which is encouraging. However, there were still some significant areas where hospitals are experiencing angst with their EHR.
