If we want to get an accurate read on how EHRs impact physician satisfaction and efficiency, we need to take several factors into account, including whether the tools have been personalized, says Mike Davis.
As care extends further the hospital walls, the need increases to convert traditional IT support from help desk services to proactive rounding services, says Mike Davis of KLAS.
The best way to ensure physicians can successfully utilize EHRs is by not only introducing the technology in medical school, but offering follow-up training, says Mike Davis of KLAS.
There’s bound to be some variance between instances of the same EHR system at different organizations, says Mike Davis. But if the workflows are dramatically different, it means clinician input isn’t being incorporated nearly enough.
Rather than acting as a barrier during patient encounters, EMRs can actually help improve engagement — if physicians receive the right training, says Mike Davis.
