Taming the EHR: Relieving Physician Administrative Burden
9:30am - 10:30amMonday, March 5
Las Vegas - Wynn Convention Center
EHRs have profoundly changed the practice of medicine and are perceived as both a blessing and a curse by the clinicians who use them. This session will discuss evidence regarding the impact of EHRs on time allocation, cognitive workload, physician satisfaction, and will illustrate tactics organizations have deployed to maximize the benefits and minimize the pain. Finally, there will be a call to action for multiple stakeholders, including physicians, regulators, payers, measure developers, technology vendors, and institutional leaders to contribute to solutions, for better patient care and professional viability—solutions that promote greater joy in medicine.
