I heartily agree that this is an area that could be improved. When we as senior citizens go to our doctors and PA's who are 30 to 40 years our juniors, they do spend a considerable amount of the time reviewing data and entering responses to questions, probably more than time actually spent on exam. Of course, I realize they are also thinking about our responses, but I agree they could and should be relieved of the busywork. Our regular GP does in fact have a person to do the initial questioning and data entry, but then that person leaves the exam room when the doc arrives.
I recall 30 to 40 years ago introducing business people then in their 50's and 60's to the old dumb terminals, well before there were cell phones and PA's so they had absolutely no background for technology. And they did not even have past experience even using printed reports. We went from totally manual systems to interactive querying. This was definitely a struggle for them, and for us as their technical mentors, which consumed too much of our time also.
We are currently re-watching the TV series called ER ( Emergency Room ) and it stands out that when patients are transported by paramedics, they are technically and visually collecting lots of data that they they 'spout' quickly to ER doctors and technicians.
Obviously we should not make many professionals overly dependent on another person for their data, but there is probably a middle ground we could improve.
