Some 60 percent of Texas physicians now use an electronic health record (EHR), according to TMA's latest survey data. However, dissatisfaction and discontent persist among some physician users of EHRs.
A recent report from AmericanEHR Partners indicates a direct correlation between physician satisfaction with EHRs and the amount of training they received. The report concludes it takes at least three to five days of EHR training for physicians to achieve the highest level of overall satisfaction. Nearly half of survey respondents indicated they received three or fewer days of training.
