Abstract

Physician-patient communication is becoming increasingly complicated with the growing use of electronic health records (EHRs). While the EHR has shown benefits in some aspects of medical care, these improvements are often at the expense of patient-centered communication. Below are some reflections on this topic, as well as techniques to improve the clinician-patient interaction in the EHR era.
