Problem List Design

  • 99% of physicians do not know the difference between a "Diagnosis" and a "Problem". None of the EHR vendors understand this differentiation.
  • As a result - Problem Lists are cluttered with symptoms, diagnoses and social issues, often inaccurate, and poorly maintained.
  • Inactive "Problems" are perpetuated.
  • Proprietary EHR vendor designs result in differing Problem Lists for the same patient at different hospitals and doctors' offices using different EHR software
The cost to the system in terms of quality of care, consistency of care, and financial consequence (Problem Lists drive Discharge Summaries and Billing) is enormous
