Study: EHR beliefs tied to gender, personality
from By Pamela Lewis Dolan
It's an established fact that for technology implementation to be successful, there needs to be some flexibility in order to meet the individual needs of those learning the new systems. Researchers at the University of Florida conducted a survey of 126 third-year medical schools to determine which personal characteristics related to their perceptions of electronic health record systems. Among their findings was that men were more likely than women to report that EHRs were easy to use. But some officials caution that it would be bad to place people in groups based on gender, culture or personality.
