Usability

AHRQ’s usability research focuses on how to design and implement electronic health records (EHRs) so that they are more intuitive to use and more readily support clinical workflow. Two areas of research, supported by the AHRQ projects below, are how to effectively reduce documentation burden for physicians and how to make data within EHRs more usable for clinical decision-making.
