Dr, Chris Russell – CMIO and Founder, NoteSwift

You will definitely want to listen in as Dr. Russell provides many great “golden nuggets” from his experience as a physician and as founder on NoteSwift. Here’s a few to get you started:

  • “Sometime physicians feel that the people in #HIT think that a doctor’s job is to enter data into the IT system” (versus to treat patients).
  • “40% of physicians are burned out. The single biggest reason for physician burnout is the increased administrative overhead requirements of physicians.”
  • “Our system (NoteSwift) has been proven to save physicians approximately 3o minutes per day in generating patient visit notes.”
  • “The purpose of #MeaningfulUse was to get physicians on EHRs.. What #MU has become is telling physicians what to do with the EHRs.”
