Usability is one of the major factorspossibly the most important factorhindering widespread adoption of EMRs. Usability has a strong, often direct relationship with clinical productivity, error rate, user fatigue, and user satisfaction critical factors for EMR adoption. Clinicians lose productivity during the training days and for months afterward as they adapt to the new tools and workflow. Adoption rates by physicians and hospitals have been slower than expected in the US, in part, due to poor efficiency and usability.
