“Amidst the wide-spread ‘digital transformation’ of healthcare, physicians are the forgotten users of hospital electronic health records (EHR) systems; their oft-reported frustration with EHRs, and the well- documented linkage between EHRs and physician burnout, are testimony to this all-too-familiar reality. But does it really matter in the grand scheme of things? Does physician frustration and their overall user experience with EHRs negatively affect patient care and outcomes, or other aspects of a healthcare provider organization’s operations? And, if so, what can be done about it?
In this HIMSS editorial webinar, sponsored by PatientKeeper, Inc., Dr. Charles Alessi, HIMSS Chief Clinical Officer, and Dr. William Gregg, Chief Clinical Transformation Officer & Vice President, Clinical Informatics at HCA Healthcare, one of the largest healthcare provider networks in the U.S., will discuss these timely and vexing questions. HIMSS insights will be shared, along with on-the-ground experience and strategies to address the health IT needs of 38,000 physicians across HCA’s 180 hospital system.”
