Computerising care units often causes problems. Even today, many doctors and carers have expressed their reservations about its real contribution to daily work. Aside from technical failings, they wonder whether it really is easy to use or helps organise treatment. The number of criticisms is never-ending: it’s imposed more than wanted, the work is overloaded due to the information being automatically processed, it’s complicated to use, etc. Indeed, 50% (9) of the time staff would be spent managing patient information or paperwork in one way or another. We can see that making patient medical data processing easier is clearly a priority.
“Physicians are overloaded with administrative work that they often view as pointless, enforced and time-consuming and which takes over their ‘real work’ with patients.”
Jean-Baptiste Michon, Product Marketing Manager, Biomedical Interoperability Expert, Enovacom
“Technology must speed patient care up. It must enable the physicians to focus on carrying out treatment and caring for patients by getting rid of pointless tasks as much as possible – anything that wastes their time.”
Yannick Michel, Organisation and IT Systems Director, Nouvelles Cliniques Nantaises (Groupe Confluent)
