Chaos—That is the word that comes to mind when Smith Heavner, BSN, MS, RN, PCCN, thinks about electronic health records (EHRs). And he is not alone. In 2019, a joint study by researchers at Stanford University, the Mayo Clinic, and the American Medical Association found that healthcare professionals graded EHRs with an F for usability.1 The researchers conducted a survey, to which more than 5000 physicians responded, giving EHRs a usability score of 45%.1 In contrast, in a similar study, Google received a usability score of 93%, while ATMs, GPS, and Microsoft Excel all fared better (82%, 71%, and 57%, respectively) by comparison.1
Critical Connections, the critical care industry's only newsmagazine, provides information on cutting-edge topics in critical care useful to the entire multiprofessional team.
