CHIA | The Shifting Landscape of Digital Technology to Reduce EHR Burnout

Electronic health records (EHRs) have reached record adoption levels across the United States.


Electronic health records (EHRs) have reached record adoption levels across the United States, yet an unexpected and negative byproduct of this mandatory workflow component has created a variety of patient safety concerns, operational inefficiencies and physician burnout issues. The introduction of various technologies, such as artificial intelligence, data analytics and other digital health applications, have shown early promise to alleviate some of the burden from clinicians. However, the adoption of technologies is slow, and clinicians and patients continue to seek better care options in an industry that is challenged to change rapidly.

Learning outcomes:

  • Describe the common current clinical workflow associated with EHRs;
  • Identify key challenges and patient safety concerns associated with EHRs; and
  • Illustrate potential technology solutions to alleviate the inefficiencies or administrative burdens the EHR has created for clinicians.
