Better EHR

A book published by the National Center for Cognitive Informatics & Decision Making in Healthcare


One of the biggest complaints we hear from healthcare providers is that the EHR is clunky, difficult to use, and sometimes gets in the way of taking care of patients. SHARPC was funded to help conduct short term and long term research to address the usability, workflow, and cognitive support issues of EHR.

This book documents some of the results of the SHARPC project: frameworks for EHR usability, methods for evaluating and designing EHR usability, and tools for clinical decision support.
