release survey results
March 5. 2013 -- Survey results released today indicate that
satisfaction and usability ratings for certified electronic health
records (EHRs) have decreased since 2010 among clinicians across a
range of indicators. Overall, user satisfaction fell 12 percent
from 2010 to 2012. Users who are "very dissatisfied" increased 10
percent during the same time period.
The American College of Physicians (ACP) and AmericanEHR
Partners revealed the findings in a presentation, "Challenges with
Meaningful Use: EHR Satisfaction & Usability Diminishing," at
the 2013 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition. AmericanEHR Partners
provides comprehensive information to support clinicians in the
selection and use of EHRs to improve health care delivery. It was
founded by ACP and Cientis Technologies.
"Dissatisfaction is increasing regardless of practice type or
EHR system," said Michael S. Barr, MD, MBA, FACP, who leads ACP's
Medical Practice, Professionalism & Quality division. "These
findings highlight the need for the Meaningful Use program and EHR
manufacturers to focus on improving EHR features and usability to
help reduce inefficient work flows, improve error rates and patient
care, and for practices to recognize the importance of ongoing
training at all stages of EHR adoption."
The findings are from 4,279 responses to multiple surveys
developed and analyzed by ACP and AmericanEHR Partners between
March 2010 and December 2012. Of the clinicians who responded to
the surveys, 71 percent were in practices of 10 physicians or less
and 82 percent of respondents intend to participate in Meaningful
Use incentive programs, up from 65 percent in 2010.
Additional key findings from the surveys include:
