AMIA2014 Workflow Poster (Tuesday) Attitudes Towards Electronic Medical Records in Intensive Care

(Quotes from 2014 AMIA proceedings that interest me due to workflow-related implications: Take me to my Workflow-Related #AMIA2014 Papers and Posters rationale!)

5:00 Tuesday

“The degree to which electronic medical record (EMR) systems fit into intensive care unit (ICU) workflows is not well studied. We conducted a survey of critical care providers to determine the degree to which current systems fit their needs. Generally, EMRs were perceived as containing useful information, but not presenting it in a user friendly way that facilitates patient care in this setting.


Overall, the majority of users thought the current EMR provided accurate information relevant to provider needs. However, fewer users were satisfied with the time required to use the EMR, with only 60% of users agreeing or strongly agreeing with the statement ‘I get the information I need in a timely manner using the EMR.’”
