KLAS surveyed over 30,000 physicians from 33 different specialties for EHR satisfaction. In that survey, it revealed that physician satisfaction with their EHR is high. Why are physicians more satisfied with EHR systems now?
High quality training was singled out as the most important factor to achieving success in EMR adoption and overall satisfaction with physicians. This all cycles back into a well-managed EHR implementation and the use of a highly trained/certified Training staff. The surveyed physicians who chose a high satisfaction rating noted that it went back to the level and concentration of training in their initial EHR roll out plan.
What about Cerner EHR users vs. Epic Systems EHR users? KLAS researched more into both competitive EHR vendors and found that with Cerner EHR, they needed “less specialty-specific functionality” compared to Epic users. Other specialties, like ophthalmology and dermatology, reported that they were NOT impacted by functionality with Epic or Cerner.
