Efforts to ease clinician burden through EHR design often focus on reducing the number of workflow clicks. But while responses like using smaller font or longer lines of text onscreen save users' physical burden, they can actually increase cognitive burden. UXpert Ross Teague (Allscripts) describes how this influences a user’s workflow and impacts overall performance. Part 1 of a two-part series.
As systems can store more and more patient information for both individuals and populations, healthcare is uniquely positioned to leverage the “big data revolution”. Dr. Fatima Paruk (CMO Analytics, Allscripts) discusses using big data in healthcare, the distinct possibilities offered by machine learning and AI, and what clinicians can do to manage these in their processes themselves.
