EHRs lacking pediatric functionality impact the health of children through increased medical errors, missed diagnoses, lack of adherence to guidelines, and reduced availability of child-specific information. The pediatric certification outlined in the 21st Century Cures Act may result in improved EHR products for pediatricians.
  • The Impact of a Location-Sensing Electronic Health Record on Clinician Efficiency and Accuracy: A Pilot Simulation Study. [Journal Article]
    Appl Clin Inform 2018; 9(4):841-848King K, Quarles J, … Feng Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: This pilot demonstrated in simulation that an EHR equipped with real-time location services improved performance in locating patients and reduced error compared with an EHR without RTLS. Furthermore, RTLS decreased the number of mouse clicks required to access information. This study suggests EHRs equipped with real-time location services that automates patient location and other repetitive tasks may improve physician efficiency, and ultimately, patient safety.
