So much of the focus on Electronic Health Records (EHR) has been on primary care practices and hospitals, leaving many specialists struggling with systems that simply weren’t designed for their needs. That, according to a 2014 study published in the Journal for Healthcare Quality, is one reason that obstetrician / gynecologist practices have lagged behind in adopting EHRs. In short, the researchers noted, many existing systems don’t address the unique needs of ob-gyns, including the fact that they focus on both the mother and the child; practice in the office and in hospitals; and have practices that are medically and surgically based.

Each field requires a different approach, and a unique interface (templates) pertaining to how they diagnose, chart and treat patient conditions.
