Robert M. Wachter, M.D., in “Why Healthcare Tech Is Still So Bad,” writes:

”This means training students and physicians to focus on the patient despite the demands of the computers. It means creating new ways to build teamwork once doctors and nurses are no longer yoked to the nurse‚Äôs station by a single paper record. It means federal policies that promote the seamless sharing of data between different systems in different settings.

”We also need far better collaboration between academic researchers and software developers to weed out bugs and reimagine how our work can be accomplished in a digital environment.”
