Electronic health record (EHR) usability can affect clinicians’ ability to provide safe patient care. Thematic analysis of interviews with emergency medicine physicians reveal that the most common perceived usability strength was visual display of the EHR system, and the most common shortcoming was lack of workflow support (e.g., a workflow mismatch between the EHR system and how clinicians use the system to accomplish tasks).
