Veteran IT exec envisions the future of EHRs – and it’s not even in the EHR
Voice recognition and natural language processing will enable doctors and nurses to interact with
electronic health record platforms in more comfortable ways.
By Michael Sperling – May 07, 2018
Along with a fistful of cutting- edge technologies, an interesting trend has begun to emerge that
may help predict a direction forward for the way users interface with electronic health records.
Hint: It’s not in the EHR. Instead, emerging technologies such as ambient listening, voice
assistants and natural language processing will provide a subtle buffer between EHR data and users.
Clinicians will be able to
access and contribute to data within electronic health records software or cloud services, in fact,
without having to touch the EHR itself.
