A majority of primary care doctors report frustration with how electronic health records have affected their relationships with patients and with the amount of time required by the systems, according to a Stanford poll commissioned from The Harris Poll. However, many also say EHRs have led to improved patient care.

At a time when technology is bringing the world closer together, the practice and potential of sharing patient data is beginning to blur the notion of “rare” diseases, and offer more options for identifying and treating conditions previously considered undiagnosed, panelists at a Stanford conference said.
