Lim of the UC Davis Eye Center. “In a perfect world, EHR systems would help providers deliver efficient patient care and include a positive, user-friendly interface,” but, “EHR technology is evolving, and we will end up with such systems if stakeholders … and those who design them work together.” invmag.us/021806
