How Mayo Clinic is combating information overload in critical care units
from Harvard Business Review
Healthcare teams depend on electronic health records (EHRs) to compile important medical data from innumerable lab tests and medical devices, observations, treatments, and diagnostic codes. We rely on it so much that we consider the EHR to be a team member. But in fast-paced critical care units, where even small errors can have big consequences, this digital team member can overload physicians with information. The sheer volume of data in EHRs creates a staggering challenge in complex environments such as intensive care units (ICUs) and emergency medicine departments.
