Despite mounting role in med student ed, barriers to EHR use remain
As more medical students gain access during clinical clerkships to electronic health records, the educational benefits and challenges of using this technology are coming into ever-sharper focus. "Wherever there is an EHR ... it helps me to be a more proactive about my learning," said Diana Tucci, a fourth-year medical student at the University of Pittsburgh. On inpatient rotations, she accesses the EHR each day to see what's on the schedule, what new lab information is available and what she needs to review before rounds.
