What Docs Like EHR the Best?
May 11th, 2012
Health research firm KLAS says internal medicine doctors report a satisfaction of 7.6 out of 9 for their chosen electronic health record (EHR) systems, making them the group of physicians most satisfied with their EHR.
The Utah-based research group’s study finds family physicians are nearly as satisfied with their EHR systems. Oncologists and ophthalmologists are least excited about their systems, with a rating of 5.8 out of 9.
In a press release, KLAS research director Mark Wagner said, “Vendors strive to meet providers’ needs and reach the specialty EMR promised land by offering a solution that provides the fewest gaps with the best support for the broadest number of specialties.”
Wagner continued, “Providers also want a solid solution for the critical, high-revenue, and high-volume specialties; strong ambulatory/inpatient data exchange, whether through native EMR integration or HL7 interfaces; and clean code releases built on top of dependable applications that work in tandem with reliable customer support.”
