Privacy and Blockchain Technology – Does It Exist In Healthcare?

Think back for a moment about your life in the healthcare system. Over the years, you’ve visited a lot of different medical practitioners for a variety of different things. You’ve seen:

A general practitioner for general care
Specialists for specific problems along the way
An x-ray technician when you thought you broke your ankle
The lab when your doctor requested blood work
A pharmacist to pick up your medication
An ob-gyn when you started your family

In and out you’ve weaved through medical facilities and doctors offices as you worked hard to stay as healthy as possible.

EHR: Is It Your Biggest Strength … or Weakness?

A new survey shows the state of how medical practices view their electronic health records (EHR) system.

According to results from The Harris Poll:

59 percent of the physicians surveyed think EHRs need a complete overhaul
40 percent think there are more challenges than benefits

What’s more, more than half of primary care physicians believe it detracts from their professional satisfaction, contributes to longer working hours, and is the cause of professional burnout within their lives.
