FACTS AND STATS

Doctors who receive training in a technology-rich environment but transition away to less modern facilities to practice after graduation say they feel less able to provide safe and efficient care, a new Vanderbilt University Medical Center study shows. Nearly 80% of those who responded to the survey had transitioned to environments with less health information technology and reported "feeling less able to practice safe patient care, to utilize evidence at the point of care, to work efficiently, to share and communicate information, and to work effectively within the local system".
