Physician champions play a critical role in driving EHR adoption in any setting, but particularly in behavioral health, says Jennifer D’Angelo, who talks about how her team is working to improve usability.
Although usability and clinician satisfaction still remain challenging for many organizations, it isn’t necessarily the technology that’s to blame, says Mike Davis, who breaks down KLAS’ latest findings.
The answer to improving EHR usability isn’t more alerts, says CT Lin, who believes we need to focus instead on designing a smarter EHR that guides and nudges a physician’s behavior.
The most effective method of EHR training doesn’t involve lectures, but rather hands-on instruction and constant guidance, says CMIO Lee Milligan, who shares what he learned as a Credentialed Trainer.
Although the industry still faces significant challenges in key areas like interoperability and usability – and relief often feels light years away – it’s important to remember that “monumental changes don’t happen overnight,” says Jared Jeffrey.
