60% of New York patients don't think providers spend too much time on computers, survey finds

The majority of New York residents — 60 percent — said "no" when asked whether their physician spent too much time on a laptop or computer during their medical visit, according to a HEALTHeLINK survey. Thirty-seven percent said "yes."

For the survey, HEALTHeLINK asked 1,000 consumers in western New York about their attitudes toward electronic sharing of patient information.

Eighty-two percent of respondents agreed electronic access to patient information is beneficial for healthcare. Fifty-one percent of respondents also indicated they believe EHRs make healthcare "more safe," compared to 18 percent who said "less safe" and 24 percent who said "no impact."
