EHR Physician Use by Time of Day

As we continue our holiday week of sharing interesting healthcare IT and EHR images, today’s image comes from the NEJM Catalyst. This image charts the Percent of total EHR work time against the hour of the day. Plus, it also splits it out into weekday work and weekend work.

The thing I hate about this chart is that it doesn’t show when doctors use to spend time doing paper charts. I still wonder how similar those charts would be. I’m just not sure we have that data anywhere.
