5 most requested, most used EHR features

According to a new survey from Capterra, the majority of EHR users (52 percent) switched EHR software because they wanted features their previous one did not have. So what are the most requested EHR features?

According to the study, the top feature respondents wished they had was voice recognition (29 percent), followed by mobile integration/app (14 percent), a medical dictionary (14 percent), telemedicine capabilities (11 percent) and a marketing functionality (10 percent).

Interestingly, physicians, nurses and administrators all prioritized different desired features in an EHR. All three roles were most likely to request voice recognition, but while 20 percent of administrators requested the medical dictionary, zero physicians did. Conversely, approximately 27 percent of physicians requested telemedicine, but zero administrators did.

The survey also asked respondents which EHR features they used the most often, which was the patient portal, followed by appointment booking, patient reminders/alerts, specialty-specific charts and physician scheduling.
