    The EMR system at our medical center is very useful as it is quite logically organized. It is invaluable in allowing me to notify my doctors on health matters and ask questions. But, and this is a big ‘but,’ I cannot imagine lots of people my age (75) comfortably using it. This is a shame in many ways, not least because knowing and feeling comfortable with an EMR allows one to go in and find errors and see they are corrected, as well as asking straightforward health-related questions that can then be dealt with by doctor, nurse or P.A., whichever is appropriate. Saves time for our health providers and at the same time keeps them up-to-date on health concerns/issues.
