Clear and sound clinical thinking

In 1971 Dr. Larry Weed articulated how well-organized problem lists and medical records are essential to clear and sound clinical thinking. Now more than 40 years after publication of Dr. Weed’s seminal "Medical Records that Guide and Teach" (N Engl J Med. 1968;[11]278:593-600), we believe his message is more relevant than ever. If electronic medical records are to support accurate clinical decision making, they must have a standard structure and format based on many of the principles that Larry Weed articulated so many years ago. We encourage today’s CMIOs, clinicians, residents, and medical students to watch this video.
