MEDITECH Leader Shares Evolving Industry Views on EHR Usability

MEDITECH Senior Solutions Manager Corinne Boudreau shares how the best technology vendors are now placing a greater focus on EHR usability and team-based care, by rebuilding their systems from scratch to support rapidly changing healthcare initiatives.

Clinicians have long been frustrated with the complicated and time-consuming design of EHRs, but according to MEDITECH Senior Solutions Manager Corinne Boudreau, the health IT industry is beginning to catch up.  

In her HIMSS blog, On EHR Usability: An Apology (and a Path Forward), Boudreau shares how the best technology vendors are now placing a greater focus on usability and team-based care, by rebuilding their systems from scratch to support rapidly changing healthcare initiatives.

“We must design for care teams, with role-based workflows, tools for effectively communicating and coordinating care, and the ability to efficiently identify, monitor and take action on panels of patients (populations),” she says. 

“On top of all of this, we need to enable greater personalization, since each clinician has her own unique workflows and practice patterns. It’s not just products that are changing, but the entire process used to develop them.”
