EMR Town Hall, Tuesday, 6/20 at WBUR

June 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

“They are the medical equivalent of texting while driving, sucking the soul out of the practice of medicine while failing to improve care.”

Three leading Boston doctors wrote that line about electronic medical record systems in a CommonHealth post headlined “Death By A Thousand Clicks.” The post went instantly viral.

Now, you’re invited to help keep the conversation going. Join WBUR’s Carey Goldberg, host of CommonHealth, as she moderates a panel discussion about what electronic medical record systems are doing to health care, and what is to be done about it.

This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
