Effect of electronic charting on the patient-psychiatrist relationship.
The impending implementation of an electronic medical record (EMR) within Behavioral Health facilities at the University of New Mexico (UNM) offers a unique opportunity to study the effects of EMR usage on a psychiatric patient population. A pre-test and post-test design using a satisfaction survey will test for changes to the patient-psychiatrist relationship before and after implementation. To date, 48 subjects have participated in the pre-implementation portion of the study.
