It was a typically cold and wet spring day more than nine years ago when I entered the e-health world. As a solo practitioner, I wanted to maximize the time I could spend with my patients, reduce costs through eliminating the rows of paper charts, and get myself ready for what I thought was inevitable.
I’d like to tell you that my journey since then has been nothing but smooth sailing and beautiful sunsets. I’d like to say that I never doubted the choices I made. Everyone who knows me knows that is not the case. But when I look back over these past nine years, it’s without hesitation that I can say that I’m a better doctor, I’ve been able to spend more time with my patients, and I know whatever the future holds, I’m prepared.
