When patients are shocked by the price of their prescriptions, this can severely disrupt their care. Patients may reduce or abandon their medication in order to save costs. Tom Pasquariello (Clinical Pharmacist, Veradigm) describes how prescription price transparency, especially integrated in the EHR, helps patients and clinicians work together to create an effective care plan for an affordable price.

Mobile Engagement for Providers and Patients - w Bonnie Bordeaux, Director of Solutions Management, Allscripts
Patients and clinicians alike may engage with technology at different levels. Connecting with each other can be a challenge.

To relieve cognitive load and promote productive workflows, EHR design should center on helping users achieve their goals. UXpert Ross Teague (Allscripts) discusses working with clinical users to determine what these goals are, and designing workflows that truly deliver on those needs. Part 2 of a two-part series.
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.
