A Community-Building Workshop: Measuring, Evaluating and Improving the Usability of Electronic Health Records

The purpose of the workshop is to establish an open forum for all stakeholders, including Industry, Academia, Government and Healthcare Providers to discuss and provide technical feedback toward development of EHR usability evaluation methods.   

The day's events will examine:

  • What facets of usability should be measured?
  • What measurement methods and protocols should be used to do this?
  • What are some of the challenges to rigorous measurement and how can they be addressed?
  • How can measurement results stimulate a market and support improved usability?

The sessions will be a combination of presentations, panels, and highly interactive small group discussions.
