Two-year longitudinal assessment of physicians' perceptions after replacement of a longstanding homegrown electronic health record: does a J-curve of satisfaction really exist?

Hanauer DA, Branford GL, Greenberg G, et al. Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association : JAMIA. 2017;24:e157-e165.

Electronic health record (EHR) implementation has been linked to physician dissatisfaction and burnout. This survey found physician satisfaction with the EHR decreased immediately after transitioning from a homegrown to a commercial system, and then either remained low or gradually returned to baseline. The authors suggest that these results underscore the need to improve commercial EHRs for physicians.
