EHR & EMR

 

Medical scribes in charge of electronic health record (EHR) documentation could reduce physician burnout and restore joy to practicing, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.

Researchers have developed a natural language processing (NLP) system capable of measuring the quality of heart failure inpatient care by analyzing data collected from electronic health records (EHRs), according to a study published in JMIR Medical Informatics.

Choosing an electronic health record (EHR) vendor can determine a hospital's ability to improve performance based on meaningful use criteria, according to a study published in the Journal of Informatics in Health and Biomedicine.

A survey conducted by HealtheLink asked participants on their view of the safety of electronic health records (EHRs)—finding 51 percent of respondents believed EHRs by physicians and hospitals makes healthcare “more safe.”

Although the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) has grown, evidence of how hospitals are using advanced EHR features is lacking. In a study presented at the 2017 American Medical Informatics Association Annual Symposium, researchers analyzed EHR utilization to assess evidence of digital divides between health systems.
