Report: Many Ophthalmologists' EHRs Don't Meet Their Needs
A new report by the American Academy of Ophthalmology noted that many electronic health record systems used by ophthalmologists do not meet their needs, according to an AAO news release.
The report by the academy's IT committee specified the areas where these EHRs, designed for primary care physicians, don't mesh with ophthalmologic practices and described how they could be improved.
EHRs designed speciﬁcally for ophthalmologists tend to be made by small companies that may not have the resources to upgrade software to meet federal Meaningful Use standards.
