Mark Kontos, MD, speaks with Richard Awdeh, MD, and Robert Weinstock, MD, regarding the evolution of digital health care and how it affects surgical practice. The three surgeons discuss the implementation of electronic health record (EHR) software and the challenges they face. Dr. Weinstock says there is currently a poor marketplace for EHR software, leading to increased complexity and a substantial cost burden for physicians. Dr. Awdeh suggests a potential solution to these challenges by outlining how the EHR marketplace could evolve in the next few years.
