There are three major components to medicine: art, science and business. The art of medicine is the relationship between patients and physicians. The science is the research and treatment. The business is how money is exchanged.

The health system seems a bit disjointed. The provider is currently disengaged because the business side is focused on productivity and transactions. Relationships and interactions with patients are the reasons providers went into healthcare.

Meaningful relationships with patients lead to higher satisfaction, lower costs and better results. Electronic health records should focus on the patient, not on making business transactions easier.

Patients need to be engaged partners in healthcare.
