A new study by CHiP researchers shows that EHR prescribing safety benefits take time to accrue and that making improvements to the system based on user feedback is key to maximizing safety benefits. The study was published in JAMIA. Read more here.
In a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, CHiP researchers highlight the ways in which quality measurement from EHRs can be improved.
A new study by CHiP researchers, Drs. Lisa Kern and Rainu Kaushal published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, provides compelling evidence that electronic health records (EHRs) enhance the quality of patient care in a community-based setting with multiple payers, which is representative of how medicine is generally practiced across the United States.
CHiP members recently published findings from a nationwide survey asking participants about their experiences with and attitudes toward health information technology. The study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), found that the majority of respondents believed electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchange (HIE) would improve healthcare quality (66% and 79%, respectively). Additionally, respondents who indicated ehir doctor had an EHR were more likely to believe that these technologies would improve quality.
