Panic not, we can get Jeremy to copy those GP records

Comment

I am lucky enough to work in health IT with some really talented people, some of whom specialise in designing user interfaces. But when they see the records we have to deal with, they just shake their heads in disbelief at how awful they are. I just saw a patient this morning who is a software designer - she just laughed at the electronic record I am using - and its a market leader! It's not the electronic part, it's the design and usability that's so bad.
