Hi! I’ve been away for a bit, but this is too shocking not to pass along. I’ve always been a proponent of choosing health care software carefully, but out in British Columbia, they appear to have hit a new low. ¬†Apparently, in Nanaimo, the EHR system chosen by the local health authority is SO BAD they have to pay doctors to use it.

Doctors will pay top dollar to use a high-end EMR that improves patient care and streamlines routine tasks, they will begrudgingly accept a second-line system (like the one being flogged by the NBMS) if user fees are subsidized by their peers but, apparently, you really do have to pay people to use one that is truly abysmal.

See for yourselves…
