New EMIS system will listen to and ‘interpret’ GP-patient conversations

Comment

"..concentrate fully on the patient rather than retrieving information from the computer". Sounds great, but unless consultation times are made longer allowing the retrieval of vital information to evaluate the patient comprehensively before the patient enters the room, this is just a step towards even more superficial practise, with the focus on "feel good" bullshi~, rather than clinical medicine.
