A possible medical misdiagnosis could have devastating results

When one is sick or injured, Illinois patients must often rely upon doctors and other specialists to determine exactly what the problem is and where it is located. If an individual has injured his or her arm, it is a simple procedure to determine which arm has been injured and ensure that the correct body part is attended to. However, if the problem has to do with an internal organ, the typical individual cannot pinpoint exactly which kidney, lung or other body part is affected. In this case, the patient must rely upon the doctor to identify the problem. Additionally, the patient must assume that a misdiagnosis that could have devastating results has not been made.

Do electronic medical records increase the risk of injury?

A recent article highlights an unintended consequence of digital medical records: an explosion of administrative work. Rather than streamlining the intake process of documenting patient histories and current symptoms, it seems that electronic records create more work for doctors.
