Report: Physicians Need More EHR Training

A report by AmericanEHR Partners found that physicians may not be receiving adequate training for electronic health records, according to a company news release.

The report, "The Correlation of Training Duration With EHR Usability and Satisfaction: Implications For Meaningful Use," includes data from a survey conducted in partnership with the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, the American College of Physicians, the American Osteopathic Association of Medical Informatics, the Infectious Disease Society of America and the Renal Physicians Association.

Results showed that at least three to five days of EHR training was necessary to reach the highest level of overall satisfaction with the EHR. Furthermore, ratings on ease of use for basic EHR functions needed for meaningful use continued to improve with more than two weeks of training. Yet, 49.3 percent of respondents said they received only three or fewer days of training.
