EHR satisfaction lags for providers

EHR satisfaction seems to be lower this year than 2014.

New data seems to show a gap between EHR evolution and physician satisfaction. According to Medscape, the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians recently found that only 12 percent of 940 respondents actually feel "very satisfied" about the EHR system they use. The source compares this to findings from a similar survey from 2010, which revealed a significantly higher number of respondents satisfied with their EHR.

While health IT has been touted as a way to simplify processes and give organizations access to better care, more than 70 percent of the survey population said they have found it difficult to reduce their workload with EHRs. Some of the specific systems that carried high levels of dissatisfaction were NextGen Ambulatory EHR and Cerner Millennium PowerChart/PowerWorks.

Writing in response to these figures, Healthcare IT News' Jack McCarthy examines the speculates as to why satisfaction has reached such low levels.

"Was it just a matter of not having pressure to use the software after a fashion that meets federal criteria?" he said. "Or is this a case of expectation adjustments such that five years ago doctors were happier with less sophisticated technology than they are today?"
