SOLVE Research

A new report by SOLVE Research shares insights from in-depth conversations and surveys with clinicians about EHR usability. Some clinicians report that they "have seen an increase in usability over the last few years." But others say that usability "is the one thing that EHR vendors have not paid enough attention to."

The report compares the usability of Allscripts Sunrise, Cerner Millennium, Epic EpicCare, and Meditech Expanse in areas of Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Learnability. Efficiency refers to the amount of time a clinician spends at each part of the patient visit. Effectiveness measures the simplicity of accomplishing tasks within the EHR. Finally, Learnability deals with the experience of clinicians to learn and achieve a level of confidence with the EHR solution.

The EHR Usability Quadrant provides a graphical positioning of four areas of usability. Usable, Learnable, Effective, and Improving. 

  • Usable solutions perform well with both task effectiveness and solution learnability.
  • Learnable solutions are easy to learn but are still improving with overall effectiveness with specific tasks. 
  • Effective solutions are easy to use for specific tasks and are improving solution learnability.
  • Improving solutions are becoming easier to learn and more effective for clinical tasks.
