The implementation of the Electronic Health Record to substantially improve the practice of medicine has not fully reached its projected potential partly due to many barriers to its adoption. There is growing evidence that one of the reasons for the delay in the adoption of EHR has been due to the negative impact of current EHRs on the clinician-patient interaction, clinician workflow and communications. This research studies the usability of the Electronic Health Record for clinicians involved in cardiac care by evaluating various clinician-patient interaction workflows. The aim of the study is to identify inefficiencies by examining the similarities and differences among various clinician-patient interaction workflows. This research is presented as “work in progress”.
