Thanks to congress, a simple trip to the doctor now means that an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is kept documenting your visit.   On one hand, having an accurate, up-to-date record of your health seems like it might be a terrific idea.  On the other hand, the doctor is now forced to spend much more time typing and documenting your visit, or he is forced to hire additional staff.  What do doctors think about EMR and has it impacted their ability to provide necessary medical care in a timely manner?  Hospital consultant extraordinaire John D'Alesandro joins us to talk about how doctors REALLY feel about EMR and to encourage you to go to to share YOUR story.
