Usability and Safety Redux

In Patient Safety on January 1, 2011 at 10:00 am


I can’t post about this topic enough (usability and safety) and I can’t say it better than Dr. Nancy Staggers from the University of Maryland. Please read her article from the Online Journal of Nursing Informatics. (By the way, this journal is a free online publication that hosts articles from many nursing visionaries. Click to read current issue)

The opening quote from the article:
Usability has a strong, often direct relationship with clinical
productivity, error rate, user fatigue, and user satisfaction–
critical to EMR adoption
(HIMSS, 2009)
