Aaron Neinstein, M.D., writing in Medscape, lists eight tips for patient-centered EHR use:

1. “Ensure proper set-up of the exam room.

2. “Use a widescreen monitor.

3. “Let the patient see your screen.

4. “Get a quiet keyboard.

5. “Make sure that the EHR is ‘teed up’ to the right page before you sit down with the patient in the exam room.

6. “Work with your healthcare organization to determine what makes a good note.

7. “Invest in an ‘optimization’ half-day.

8. “During the patient visit, stop typing and look your patient in the eye.”
