Penn Medicine moves beyond using EHR as an administrative tool
The University of Pennsylvania Health System, also known as Penn Medicine, is working with clinicians on an overhaul of EHR systems so they can become a more intuitive and interactive tool to relieve administrative burdens, enhance clinical efficiency and boost patient outcomes. "Ultimately, we need to move past the idea that the EHR is just an administrative tool and see it as a clinical tool -- like a scalpel, or a medication, or an X-ray machine," says Dr. David Asch, executive director of the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation.
