Few EHRs score well on new @AmerMedicalAssn usability ratings

Only three electronic health-record systems got perfect scores for usability—two made by Allscripts and one by McKesson Corp.—out of 20 products rated by the American Medical Association and a group of researchers.

Electronic Health Records (EHR) are not user-centered. Much of the Pacific Northwest uses the “Epic” system of electronic charting, although it scored only 9/15 in meeting “best practices” (as defined by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS) standards. It takes an educated eye to locate potential legal issues in the reams of paper produced during discovery of EHRs. The nurses at Lifeline are skilled at such tasks as these. Why sift through thousands of pages of records, occupying hours of your valuable time that could be better spent on other tasks? Call Lifeline for an effective and timely review of all medically-related cases today. 509.684.6110.
