from Clinical Innovation + Technology News
Interruptions in clinical workflow, occurring during electronic medical record (EMR) documentation and direct patient care, could have adverse effects on patient care, according to a study published March 9 in the International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction. For nurses, answering a phone call or a coworker’s question while otherwise busy could affect patient care. In this study, researchers evaluated the impact of such interruptions in the emergency department.
