Abstract

This chapter addresses some of the negative aspects of both electronic medical education and the electronic health record. This includes the dilution of the doctor/patient interface, the emphasis on documentation rather than on learning the healing arts, and the intellectual dishonesty that arises from the use of templates and automated fillers. The authors address concerns about the dehumanization of medicine, starting with the style of medical education carrying through to the style of function within the clinical environment.
