Description

EHRs were designed and adopted to make care more efficient for clinicians and safer for patients. However, some EHR layouts and designs referred to as usability have contributed to inadvertent patient harm, drawing concerns from providers, vendors and policymakers. Additional oversight and testing, and the establishment of a multi-stakeholder initiative to foster collaboration among providers, EHR vendors and government could help detect problems before safety errors occur.
