The article and the lecture both deal with electronic medical records. Whilst the author claims that electronic databases are better than paper-based for three reasons, the lecturer contradicts his arguments respectively.

First, according to the reading, electronic records helps decrease cost for storage and transfer of medical records. In contrast, the professor argues that electronic records cannot actually save space because doctors usually keep the paper version as a backup or in case signatures are needed for legal reason.

Second, the writer states that by using electronic records doctors can avoid making mistakes. However, the lecturer questions his argument by saying that doctors still use pen and paper to write down patients' information by hand during medical examination. Then those information is entered into the system by other staff members, who may make errors at this stage.

Last but not least, the author posits that electronic records are helps for doctors to collect useful information for research. As opposed to the writer, the speaker points out that there are restrictions on using patients' medical information required by privacy law. doctors have to follow many strict steps to ask patients for permission, which usually denied by patients.

The article and the lecture both deal with electronic medical records. Whilst the author claims that electronic databases are better than paper-based for three reasons, the lecturer contradicts his arguments respectively.

First, according to the reading, electronic records help decrease cost for storage and transfer of medical records. In contrast, the professor argues that electronic records cannot actually save space because doctors usually keep the paper version as a backup or in case signatures are needed for legal reason. Therefore, the electronic version does not reduce cost at all.

Second, the writer states that by using electronic records doctors can avoid making mistakes. However, the lecturer questions his argument by saying that doctors still use pen and paper to write down patients' information by hand during medical examination. Then this information is entered into the system by other staff members, who may make errors at this stage.

Last but not least, the author posits that electronic records are helps for doctors to collect useful information for research. As opposed to the writer, the speaker points out that there are restrictions on using patients' medical information required by privacy law. Doctors have to follow many strict steps to ask patients for permission, which patients usually deny offering as it is not used for the therapy.

As we can see, the author and the lecturer hold very different views on electronic medical records
