As you can see from a review of the physician interface, there are many exciting potentials that exist for the future of the EMR. None of these will happen unless we change the focus of the system design process and start by making the physician a key and primary player in this equation. To get a proactive physician following is the most important step forward and should be a primary focus for the large investments that are planned. We need a company or organization that sees the need for a future product that will accomplish these goals. We need funding for that process and a prototype development effort to perfect the design. We need the construction of a relational database of medicine with a professional staff to support its operation. Are there entrepreneurs still out there that can see this challenge and are willing to invest in its accomplishment? I sure hope so and I would be delighted to hear from you by email.
