4 Your Health: Doctors spending more time on paperwork; injuries at football practice.

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- A new study sheds light on which practice drills may be risky for young football players.

Researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center measured the head impacts suffered by nine players during one season of practice. The largest number of blows occurred during contact drills with multiple players. But the hardest hits took place during open field tackling drills.

Experts say these findings could help coaches determine which drills should be modified or eliminated during practice.

Doctors overwhelmed with paperwork

Primary care doctors spend more than half of their work day doing paperwork.

New data shows physicians spent nearly six hours a day logged on to the electronic health records system both during and after clinic hours. Most of this time was spent on patient documentation, clerical tasks and communicating with co-workers.
