Lisa Rosenbaum, M.D .: Transitional Enduring or Chaos Harm? The EHR and the Disruption of Medicine A decade ago, a primary care physician I admired appeared to come undone. His efficiency had derived not from rushing between sufferers but from knowing them so well that his charting was effortless and fast. But instantly he became distracted, losing his grasp on the facts of his sufferers’ lives. He slumped around, shirt half-untucked, perpetually pulling a yellowed handkerchief from his pocket to wipe his perspiring forehead. Everyone concerned he was ill.
