3 Types of EHR Training Key for Mitigating Clinician Burden

According to a KLAS survey, sufficient EHR training may be the key to improving EHR user satisfaction rates.

“We as an industry have an opportunity to improve EHR adoption by investing in EHR learning and personalization support for caregivers,” wrote researchers in the study.

“If health care organizations offered higher-quality educational opportunities for their care providers — and if providers were expected to develop greater mastery of EHR functionality — many of the current EHR challenges would be ameliorated,” researchers stated.

Researchers recommended healthcare industry stakeholders implement standards to ensure clinicians across health systems receive high-quality EHR training. They recommended at least four hours of EHR training to improve EHR satisfaction throughout the industry.
