What issues with the EMR that make practices unhappy to use it is Flatiron Health hoping to fix?

As a practicing physician myself, I want my technology, in this case, EHR, to make my patient care more effective and more efficient. Unfortunately, many physicians find there EHRs fail to do either. At Flatiron, we take a 10-seconds-count product design philosophy. Meaning that anything bring built for physicians has to take in conversation the sufficiency principal. Really the goal of that is giving time back to doctors and their patients.

On top of that there’s a lot of data tracked inside the EHRs. So, we are really trying to unlock the value of the data inside the EHRs and so that we can start learning from the experience of every patient ultimately to get more effective treatment options for patients.
