2004 EHR WfMS Tutorial Slide 44-45: EMR EHR Practice Survey: Usability, Revenue, Expenses, Time & Quality

(Take me to the beginning of these slides!)

Well, I hope that I have made you interested electronic health record workflow management systems technology. It has a lot promise. But the proof is in the pudding. We conducted a survey of 200 practices. Thirty-six responded and of these twenty medical practices had preexisting operations so that we could ask them to compare before and after experience. The average practice was 2.7 years on the electronic health record workflow management system. A slight majority of them were pediatric practices, and then family practice, internal medicine, obstetrics-gynecology. Five percent were multi-specialty [which is why the percentages add up to 105 percent]. These practices had on the average 3.76 providers and a total of 17.5 staff.

The survey was a self-assessment survey that covered the categories of usability, revenue, expense, time, and quality.
