Attending physician remote access of the electronic health record and implications for resident supervision: a mixed methods study.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
This survey study examined remote electronic health record use by attending physicians for resident supervision. Nearly all respondents reported accessing the electronic health record remotely. Of these, 92% reported discovering clinically relevant information that the residents had not conveyed to them. The authors conclude that this "backstage" supervision requires further study to identify best practices for safety and education.
