Survey: Doctor burnout tied to perceived poor EHR usability
from Health Data Management
A survey of U.S. physicians finds that the lower doctors rate the usability of their electronic health records, the higher the likelihood that they are experiencing symptoms of professional burnout. The study, a joint effort by researchers at the American Medical Association, Mayo Clinic and Stanford, revealed that dermatologists, general surgeons and orthopedic surgeons rated their EHRs especially poorly. Results of the survey also showed that older doctors found EHRs less usable than younger physicians.
