Report: Nurses Have Significantly Higher Levels Of EHR Satisfaction Than Providers
HealthLeaders Media

Nurses say highest satisfaction points are those related to patient care.

A new report from the Arch Collaborative, 62% of nurses said they were pleased with their overall electronic health record (EHR) experience, compared with just 16% of physicians. The group surveyed 70,000 clinicians, including 28,000 nurses.

The report identified two areas of success that successful facilities have in common: strong initial and ongoing education and shared EHR ownership. Nurses typically have a longer training period than physicians which can have an impact on how comfortable they have using the program. Indeed, 56% of surveyed nurses agreed that their initial training/education factored into their positive response, compared to just 43% of physicians who reported having a strong initial training/education period.
