EHR vendors focusing on usability

Who: govhealthit.com

What: Electronic health records (EHRs) have to be usable and useful by physicians and integrate with hospitals’ or practices’ other systems to benefit providers or else the money spent on them is just wasted. Before EHRs were widely adopted, there wasn’t a demand for usability, according to David Blumenthal, MD, former national health IT coordinator and current president and CEO of The Commonwealth Fund.

Why: This seems a bit obvious in retrospect, but now with more competition, EHR vendors have to continue to differentiate themselves from their competition. And usability will certainly be a key area of interest.
