Contemporary Issues in Child Psychiatry Practice: EMR and Integrated Care
The modern practice of child and adolescent psychiatry is in the midst of a historic sea change. Dr. Gregory Fritz, the President of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, will address two major, vexing issues confronting the field during his April, 2016 visit: the Electronic Medical Record and Integrated Care (with Pediatrics and Family Practice).
Child psychiatrists (CAPs) lack knowledge about the rationale, processes, and likely impacts of pediatric integrated care. While the majority of CAPs are now familiar with the EMR, they struggle to find a way to make it an ally, instead of an obstacle, in daily clinical practice. Skills and attitudes may be a greater hindrance than knowledge base for CAPs in relationship to the special demands of the EMR.
