What Docs Like EHR the Best?

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.”

    This article was short, but not sweet. There was no details about how the practioners really felt. I was hoping to cite this article for college class. However there is really nothing here.

    I agree with you on this Carole. I too was anticipating using info from this report for a college class, but if you ask me, it was a waste if time and paper because there was no meaningful info to use. They could have at least mentioned the system they were using. How disappointing.
